AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'We fall into it, out of it and find it everywhere. It’s a battlefield, an open door and it’s even in the air. But what does finding love really mean to you?

'You Know We Belong Together is a story of love; a theatrical celebration of this incredible force of nature that strikes like lightning into our hearts. Family, friends and lovers, Julia Hales offers a deeply personal account of her own experiences of love as a daughter, actor, dreamer and person with Down syndrome.

'Bringing with her the voices and aspirations of a community rarely seen on stage, You Know We Belong Together is an uplifting performance with video, dance and song. As the Studio Underground is transformed into Julia’s own private realm, it becomes a place where dreams could be brought into reality.'
