Lucy is from the North. Jess is from the South.

In this new work, TWL are exploring the invisible boundary between the two halves of the country, asking how the spaces either side shape who we are.


Wrestling with the nature of identity and form, they’ll playfully challenge our thinking about place and culture - seeking to discover what really divides us and what that means for the future.

North & South is dually imagined as a concept album and live performance piece, fusing live music and theatre.
