The Place is committed to developing ground-breaking dance from both leading choreographic talent and rising stars. Through its in-house Producing and Touring team, The Place brings bold new work to national and international audiences.

The Playground Tour offers a double bill of work for young audiences - How To Build A Universe by Extended Play and Deva by Pagrav Dance Company presented on the same day.

How To Build A Universe by Extended Play. Reimagining the formation of our universe and planet through playfulness and creativity, How to Build a Universe invites children to participate by dancing along to lively music with two energetic performers.

Deva by Pagrav Dance. Two playful and engaging Indian classical performers share their thoughts, their
culture, their languages and their identity. This original performance is sure to inspire young audiences, challenge perceptions of a classical dancer and inspire children to think differently.
