Crackle. Dust. (2019)

Crackle. Dust. is an unveiling of women’s resilience, a call to action and a sharing of power.

Made in collaboration with women from the North, the work shares their experiences of endings that have had a life changing impact through exquisite choreography, live sound and spoken word.
Performed by an exquisitely diverse ensemble of 7 female performers Crackle. Dust. witnesses and celebrates the silence breakers, survivors and the hopeful in our region whilst remaining universal.

With special thanks to the women who have shared their experiences with us in order to inform the work.
