About 1, 2 Punch

1, 2 Punch is a hard-hitting double bill exploring love, regret and men’s mental health through pieces I Can See Us and Ta/To/Me.

From Birmingham-based choreographer and composer, Daniel Lukehurst is the founder of dance company Various Creations, making work that is highly physical, and emotive, and presenting ideas in a grounded, personal way.

I Can See Us

A piece that explores the definition of loving another. Shown through a relationship in 3 chapters: The Beginning, The End, and Looking Back. I Can See Us weaves movement, spoken word, and a bespoke soundtrack as we follow a relationship through tender beginnings, to the heartache & anguish of the inevitable, to a place of reflection and ultimately: love.


The story of a man in trouble, as told from his perspective. As his world changes, we follow as he maintains a grip on the forces in his life, even if it means dealing with a stark reality. As he faces the world open before him, he must make a choice whether to move on or to remain looking back. Exploring men’s mental health and the emotional toll it can take on the psyche.
