111 is a powerful duet between two exceptional dancers – Joel Brown and Eve Mutso – as they explore their different strengths and vulnerabilities. Joel is a paraplegic dancer, self-trained, who dances with CandoCo – the UK’s leading inclusive dance company and Eve is former principal dancer with Scottish Ballet.
111 is the number of vertebrae that Joel and Eve have between them… hypothetically. Eve “moves like she has a hundred”, Joel’s spin is fused and he jokes he only has 11.
“… visually striking…their arms combining in a hybrid semaphoring of graceful resourcefulness”

Joel Brown and Eve Mutso first met at Tramway in Glasgow in 2015 when Scottish Ballet, Indepen-dance and Marc Brew were exploring a new work. From the first time they danced together, there was an instant rapport. 111 is the result.
111 is commissioned and supported by Unlimited, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Spirit of 2012; The Work Room; The Place; Made in Scotland; Creative Scotland and Tramway. 111 was selected to be part of the prestigious Made in Scotland showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019 and has been listed as one of the top 12 shows to see in this year’s Fringe by the Guardian newspaper.
