Artists Lizzie Hewitt and Tom Grashion performed an item called Microcosm.
The Alisha Hamilton Dance Company performed RETALE, which examines themes like adulthood, and the desire for security and clarity.
Finally, the What is Written Dance Company put on a piece called The Awakening, which is about the struggle of people who fight oppression.
