Dance theatre takes on mental health in Witness, our latest new production, which premieres and tours the UK this Autumn. Ahead of the tour, we’re delighted to share with you exclusive teasers and a taster of what to expect from the new work.
Witness, the main piece in this double-bill, turns the spotlight on mental health in a sensitive portrayal of how loved ones cope, when mental health problems take hold of someone close. Raw and insightful, Witness breaks down preconceptions by uncovering the realities of an illness, which is too often misunderstood. A powerful and original view of mental health through dance and movement, this is relevant and up-to-the-minute dance theatre.
The world premiere of Witness takes place on Weds 19 Oct at The House at Plymouth University. We then tour the work to Studio B, Falmouth University (Fri 21 Oct); The Arts Centre, Edge Hill University (Tues 25 Oct); Mumford Theatre, Cambridge (Weds 2 Nov) and Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal (Sat 12 Nov), before heading home to Manchester for two nights at The Lowry, Salford Quays (Tues 29 & Weds 30 Nov).
