Yorkshire-based dance-theatre company to preview new show in Wakefield ahead of London premiere
and live on Freeview channel 276
SHED – the new dance-theatre piece from acclaimed Yorkshire-based company Northern Rascals – uses digital art, spoken word and contemporary dance performance to raise awareness of the mental health issues young people across the country and whole world are facing.
SHED was created by Anna Holmes and Sam Ford – co-artistic directors of Northern Rascals, a company that uses theatre and contemporary dance to highlight social and political issues.
Anna said: “SHED was birthed in a period of social disconnection where our lives were linked through snippets on screens, in windows, through doors.
"These moments felt isolated and incredibly personal – they belonged to us, our lives and our four walls.
"Yet, when we regrouped with our creative collaborators and our community, we found that our stories were not singular but collectively shared. SHED is a response to that.
"Our hope is that our audiences will leave taking a part of SHED with them, perhaps a familiar story, or one that’s unknown. SHED is rooted in the messy, complicated lives that we all live.”
Tickets for the CAPA college performance are still available, costing £12 per ticket or £10 for concessions.
