Challenging, poignant, intense and confronting, and heart-breaking – these are just some of the words one could use to describe the 60 minutes we share exploring Intimacy with four very diverse performers. Michelle Ryan, an exquisite dancer in her former life, uses her struggle to acceptance of MS as a basis to examine the importance of intimacy in all our lives. She shares the performance space with the impressive Vincent Crowley and Emma Bathgate and Simon Eszeky, who provide the music for the piece – which is, in truth, more cabaret than theatre.
