About the show

A show about failure. 

Rejection. Failure. Loser. ☹

For 15 years, Thomas has faced a constant, stifling stream of rejection. Dates broken, relationships soured but even worse … dance pieces that never got made. He's written about the blighters in funding applications, discussed them with commissioners, paraded them out to promoters, but sadly, they remain unwanted. From a large-scale interactive piece about the apocalypse to a piece exploring the nuances of cheddar cheese, for one night only, using letters of rejection as a starting point, Thomas will bring them to life.  Maybe we’ll discover there was a reason that they never got made …

The Unwanted premiered in February 2019.

Created with support from Creative Scotland, Citymoves Dance Agency and Dance Base.
