In Spring 2014 Yo Yo created 'Frontline' for the Barnstaple's Fringe TheatreFest - a contemporary dance piece, loosely based on Anna Hope's novel 'Wake'. Set in post WW1 London, we trace the story of three women all dealing with their own form of loss - one grieves a son, one grieves a lover and the last grieves her brother's spiral into the depths of post-traumatic stress disorder. This common thread weaves their relationship with each other tighter together.

Receiving positive audience feedback, this Devon trio of female dancers - Clare China, Helen Watts and Sarah King - have decided to develop the piece further for 2015. Hence the birth of 'Beyond The Frontline'!
