The Darkest Corners
20 Apr 2017 - 22 Apr 2017
‘It’s dark. A woman walks alone on the edge of a city. The city is Leeds. Or Paris. Or maybe it’s Mexico City. She wants to be alone in the night. She wants to dance in the darkest corners’.
Physical theatre company RashDash present a powerful new show confronting violence against women, performed outdoors on the streets of Leeds. Inspired by the city's radical, activist history, this cabaret rally features live music, vivid physicality, and stories of resistance from around the world.
The Darkest Corners is a communal celebration, a visceral reclamation of the city, a fearsome and triumphant outcry into the night.
“RashDash are the punk princesses of late-night theatre” - The Guardian
