What Songs May Do…is the highly anticipated first full-evening production by award-winning choreographer, former National Dance CompanyWales dancer and Rendez-Vous dance  artistic director: Mathieu Geffré.


Revealed by Nina Simone’s songs, this duet exposes with an unapologetic passion the fractured relationship of a once romantic couple as they delve into their past in an attempt to rebuild their future together. Through Simone’s music, this dance piece shines a light on our deep rooted connection to memories through music and proposes the power of what songs may do. Poetic, passionate, physical and emotional, What songs may do… is an inclusive dance piece that celebrates love in all its diversity.
