'All I Can Do Is Be Me' is a joyful, sometimes humorous and sometimes biting look at the world. We follow one man's journey as he confronts a broken and uncaring society. The man finds himself stepping outside the craziness of life to ask himself questions....why does it have to be like this?....why are people so blinkered?
He reaches out the hand of love, and finds that it has the power to alter society. The man shows people how they can remain true to themselves, follow their heart's inner call, and still be a caring member of society.
The ballet is set to some of Dylan's best loved songs, including:
- Mr Tambourine Man
- Times they are a-changin'
- Like a Rolling Stone
- Hard Rain
- All I Really Wanna Do
- Blowin' in the Wind
If society leaves you feeling depressed and let down, this uplifting and exuberant ballet will gladden and encourage the heart.

- "The whole company displayed fantastic commitment, not only achieving an air of technical sprezzatura, but conveying narrative and individual character journeys with a clarity that was both entertaining and engaging." (audience member)
- "Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the performance last night. Absolutely understood why (our son) was raving so much about the quality of the dancing. I don't even like Bob Dylan (unlike the folks singing along behind us!) but I loved that piece in particular - it was so joyous." (audience member)
