 1 Click Away is an educational dance performance exploring the impact of online shopping on the environment. Through interactive experiences, children and families can build and dismantle temporary sculptures made out of cardboard boxes and parcels, learning about waste production and eco-consciousness.

Join us for an exciting and educational dance performance, "1 Click Away", where you'll get the chance to move and make a difference! Our talented performers will take you on a journey into the world of packaging materials and explore the impact of online shopping on the environment.

Children and their families will be able to actively participate in the performance by building and dismantling temporary sculptures and landscapes made out of cardboard boxes and parcels. 


Through this interactive experience, we aim to educate and inspire a new generation of eco-conscious individuals who understand the consequences of excessive waste production.

At the heart of the performance is the issue of overproduction of waste in the context of online shopping. We all want things to be readily available, affordable, and delivered quickly, but this behavior leads to mountains of unnecessary waste that harms our planet. "1 Click Away" uses dance and art to engage and inspire the audience to be mindful of their impact on the environment and make a difference in their daily lives.





Review by Katie Hagan/ dance Art Journal:


"Whilst it might seem pretty odd to repeat it, Gauhe’s beautiful use of nuance lifts the repetition to another level. From the new side, dancers create rhythms and change speeds as they pass the boxes, cutting the repetition with a marvellous tension, which is unleashed when the dancers carefully construct a box-jenga that nearly reaches the ceiling. Even the faintest breath would make it tumble."


"Gauhe’s piece is a manifestation of a box: it is multi-dimensional, multi-layered and wrapped in paradox. It viscerally exposes the damaging environmental effects of waste, yet in the same breath draws attention to the many people who rely on logistics/delivery jobs to put food on the table. And in another perhaps more innocent way the piece is simply about playing with boxes."


"The lasting message which I took away was the unexpected delight in realising the things we take for granted and use everyday can still make us smile. ‘1 Click Away’ lies on a continuum between play and more sinister ideas such as exploitation, not to mention its ability to demonstrate how we can find beauty in the things we chuck away."

Review by Catalina Riofrio (danceartjournal)

“Towers falling down” replayed one of the kids. “Things break all the time” said the other. “Waste, a lot of waste” said the tallest one. Those were the answers of the children attending 1 Click Away by Follow Through Collective, a participative workshop and performance that explores the themes of reusing, reducing and recycling the wrappings and boxes that come to our door almost every week. It left me wondering, how does it feel in the body to have too much, how does it feel in the body to have less?


Review by Nicholas Minns/ Writing about dance:


"The approach is to let the boxes do the talking, and Gauhe’s choreography for her four dancers is focused on enhancing their eloquence. But in making the inanimate boxes the principal characters, 1 Click Away inevitably implicates not only their warehouse sorters, packagers and dispatchers, but also the shoppers whose collective proclivity for online purchases has clicked up a proliferation of cardboard waste.
