HANDS has taken us around the world and back again. We've played big venues (Sydney Opera House, Roundhouse), tiny venues (Bumkin, Brompton Club), birthday parties (Roxette) and Bat Mitzvahs (she wanted One Direction but got us instead).

Choreographed / performed by Suzanne Cleary & Peter Harding 

Based on a video by Jonny Reed

Duration: 8 minutes

Fast-paced skills in the name of comedy…

a blur of stamping boots, flying fists

and a lot of laughs

Evening standard

 They’re absolutely right, you can make

Irish dancing cool...they had people

laughing as well. Brilliant!

The Sun

They call themselves ‘nouveau folk deconstructionists’. After watching them take Riverdance apart, I’d call them feckin’ funny

reviews

“Up & Over It is a dance duo with a difference. Imagine Rab C Nesbitt doing Riverdance

but with impeccable timing. Hands, feet and beer bottles fly at a breathtaking pace…

10 minutes of Up & Over It made a mixed evening magical” 

Evening Standard

"A guest spot by hand-dancers Up & Over It – a coked-up face-off

played out through black tie, white lines and

red eyes – brings the house down"

Time Out, London

"Guest performers Up & Over It stole the show with their depiction of a

dishevelled young couple in a drink and drug-fuelled post-party row

played out with no words yet conveying a witty,

gritty yet playfully warm narrative"

Daily Mail

 

“Up & Over It dress up a stunning seated dance

routine as a debauched night in” 

The Times

"Fleet-footed Riverdance alumni, Suzanne Cleary and Peter Harding now employ

their fast-paced skills in the name of comedy. No tired observational

material on the difference between cats and dogs, just a

blur of stamping boots, flying fists and a lot of laughs"
