“A fantastic physical theatre workshop from Tmesis at the Big Event,  the young people were challenged, bought out of their confront zone in a dynamic and exciting way. Upbeat, energetic and enjoyable the participants where pushed physically and artistically to produce a high quality ensemble piece as part of their end of week sharing’ Highly recommended!”
