Trainstation has been an international success since its premiere in London in 1998. The project is conceived for railway stations and investigates the social environment and human relations within a distinctive public space, whose characteristics can nonetheless be found across cultures around the globe.

A seminal piece for the company forging new ideas about performance in public spaces, the piece toured nationally and internationally from 1998-2004 to mainline railway stations in Madrid, Helsinki, Prague, Budapest, Zurich, London, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Munich.

Co-commissioned by the South Bank Centre and The Place Theatre and funded by London Arts Board’s Creative Developments in Dance Award.
