Yasmin feels rage towards the city she used to call home, but Aisha sees a different London from her best friend.

Air Hunger is inspired by the fear and anxiety of suffocation. Free Falling looks at the idea of falling, failing and the determination to recover. Hagit Yakira has created a powerful and atmospheric programme based on a collection of stories gathered over her years of working as a dance movement therapist.
