What Songs May Do… is a contemporary dance production by former National Dance Company Wales dancer and award winning choreographer Mathieu Geffré. Performing to the evocative songs of Nina Simone, two dancers expose the fractured relationship of a once romantic couple as they delve into the past in an attempt to rebuild their future together. What songs may do shines a light on our deep rooted connection to memory through music and suggests the power of what songs may do. Poetic, passionate and highly virtuosic What songs may do… celebrates the diversity of love with unashamed romanticism.

“This is dance at its best, musical, intelligent, well-crafted and moving, drawing in the audience”

British Theatre Guide

“What Songs May Do… was a beautiful reminder of the evocative and transformative power of music. It was also a beautiful illustration of how dance can cut so cleanly through surface gloss to explore the very heart of our being. I loved it.”

The Greenwich Visitor

“If you’ve ever loved or been loved, then this show is not to be missed”
