The Sun Shining On Her Hands
Inspired by Georg Büchner ‘s ‘Woyzeck’ and using real-life accounts of gender discrimination, this explosive visual production explores the struggle to be recognized as an individual in our modern world.
Using dynamic dance sequences, original music and a marriage of modern and old text, The Sun Shining On Her Hands is a unique theatrical creation that will leave you wanting more.
The production was performed as a work-in-progress at the Rag Factory off Brick Lane in London in June 2015. We were one of 9 out of 120 applicants to be selected to be part of their April – July season.
The Sun Shining On Her Hands was then performed at The Bread and Roses Theatre (December 2015), and The AE Harris (March 2016).
