Jack's Tramway Supports residency was in preparation for performances at Edinburgh Festival Fringe as part of the Made in Scotland programme.


Sense of Centre is a moving dance solo from award-winning choreographer Jack Webb. Dance, object manipulation and projection combine to explore our longing for home, need for connection and the body as a place of sanctuary from the modern world. A compelling meditation of our increasing sense of loneliness and isolation, and the basic human need for a centre of gravity. In a world that is fractured and breaking apart, Sense of Centre is a powerful return to the simplicity of nature and the importance of belonging.

Supported by Creative Scotland, Dance Base, The Work Room, The Byre Theatre, Tramway, Summerhall, City Moves and the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival.
