A young woman, driven by the promise of freedom and what it seems to offer, leaves everything behind. But at what cost?
This physically visceral and immersive, promenade show, features a 38-strong all-female cast. Inspired by a true story, it tackles contemporary themes such as community, belonging, migration and repression.
Director/Choreographer Rachel Birch-Lawson harnesses the experimental spirit of devising and ensemble work in creating a unique production that not only challenges the conventions of musical theatre, it breaks the mold. While Nicola Chang’s (STOMP!) intricately woven score blends contemporary, classical and electronic music, layered with live choral qualities and rhythmic textures, to create a breathtakingly fresh soundscape.
Part of Youth Music Theatre UK’s boundary pushing Dance Connections series that boldly combines complex vocal soundscapes and improvisation with daring contemporary movement.
