Part of the 2018 Season, The Art of Change, which explores how artists respond to, reflect and can potentially effect change in the social and political landscape.
This show discusses themes of an adult nature, sexual violence and domestic abuse.
Endlessly inventive choreographer Rhiannon Faith shines a light on the complex subject of domestic abuse in an empowering and participatory performance highlighting human resilience.
Beverly is having a party and you are one of her guests.
There are games, drinks, shared conversation, energetic dance and heartbreaking moments as she bravely gives a raw and honest account of surviving an abusive relationship.
Each member of the all-female cast, a close-knit group of non-performers and dance artists, fearlessly takes on the persona of Beverly to convey turbulent, real experiences.
The unusual setting creates a safe space for them to reveal the challenges they have faced and celebrate their endurance with the audience.
Faith's work with a support group at charity Safer Places underpins this show, which seeks to raise social consciousness around domestic abuse by supporting women to openly talk about it.
