The Hiccup Project present their award-winning show May-We-Go-Round at Déda, in Derby on October 18 at 7.30pm.

Founded by Northern School of Contemporary Dance graduates, Chess Dillon-Reams and CristinaMacKerron, The Hiccup Project aim to create innovative and accessible work, with a humorous and gritty take on real-life experience for audiences with any amount of prior experience of theatre and dance.

May-We-Go-Round? is their debut work, receiving numerous awards including the Pebble Trust Brighton Fringe Award.

Honest, provocative and laugh out loud funny May-We-Go-Round? opens a window into the hilarious highs and heart-breaking lows of Chess and Cristina’s real-life romantic encounters, taking audiences along for the bittersweet ride.

Having discovered their diary from the age of ten, devoted to the detailed records of their many loves, 14 years on Chess and Cristina sit in a pub realising that all they ever seem to talk about is their romantic encounters (or lack of). They decided to make a show about it.

In a collision of fiercely energetic dance and comedic theatre, Chess and Cristina relay direct extracts from Chess’ diary, summer flings, and some of the romantic clichés that are all so uncomfortably familiar. The strength of their female friendship shines through as they jangle round the merry-go-round of romance.

Tickets to see May-We-Go-Round? presented by The Hiccup Project area available from or through Déda’s Box Office on 01332 370911.
