Withhold is a high-energy dance-theatre work created and performed by InPlay Dance Collective. The show explores the effects of denying difficult emotions through visceral movement and the spoken word. It is a show for people from all walks of life and explores how the suppression of emotions can lead to false confidence across gendered lines, often with explosive results. This show draws on the lived experience of its cast, both trans and cis, to get a full view of the ways we hide from ourselves.
