More Information on THE DARKEST CORNERS

“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 doesn’t want to walk home with her keys between her fingers, crossing the road when she sees a shadow. 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.

Open captioning allows theatre goers with varying degrees of hearing to view the full text as it is spoken or sung, including sound effects and off stage noises. These appear on a scrolling screen, positioned on or at the side of the stage.

British Sign Language Interpreted

A signed performance is the usual full production using either the creative use of sign integrated into the performance or a British Sign Language Interpreter on stage interpreting the show for D/deaf attendees.

Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.

A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.

Dementia friendly performances are for all audiences. The theatre experience is enhanced for people living with dementia and their supporters, with adaptations to front of house service, the show and pre-show information packs. Additional dementia-aware staff, quiet spaces, clear signage and visual markers, sound and lighting adjustments and flexible seating options all help to create a supportive, shared experience.
