To quote from the 2Faced Dance Company’s website, “2Faced Dance produces innovative, accomplished and aspirational artistic performance and participation programmes alongside a captivating community dance programme that truly reflects the landscape in which we are based, allowing us to tell new and original stories, generating distinctive new work, whilst striving to stay relevant to our audiences“. This performance ticked all of those boxes.
The section on “Two Old Men” describes the performance as “a story about two men’s extraordinary experiences, eccentric behaviour and witty tales.Two Old Men will make you gasp, laugh and cry as the old men take you on a life long journey all the way to the pub“.

Regular Hull commuters or readers of this blog might notice something different about this part of the Paragon Interchange, which I’ve mentioned here and here. Last November, to mark the centenary of the start of the First World War, plaques were mounted all around the walls and between the double doors you can see in the background in the photographs above. How quickly history is made.
