About Mayfly

Mayfly is a spectacular fusion of water, dance and song. The stage will come to life with water effects and leaping fountains.

Original music and dance will create an immersive atmosphere of togetherness and celebration.

A poetic story expressing the transformative strength of women. Mayfly explores the fleeting, ephemeral nature of life and how our survival is inextricably linked to our environment. The fountains provide numerous metaphors, representing obstacles in our lives, the ever changing landscape in which we all live, that nothing stays the same, that we can stand up, overcome and create change.
