Smack That (a conversation)

Sat 11 May 2019

Beverly is having a party and you are one of her guests. Expect games, dancing, humour and a very raw and honest account of domestic abuse.

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.

Commissioned by Harlow Playhouse.
Supported by DanceEast, with additional support from Arts Council England, Essex County Council, Rich Mix and artsdepot. Developed through the Open Lab at Barbican/Guildhall.
With special thanks to Safer Places.
