ON SATURDAY, October 13, at 7.30pm, What A Little Bird Told Me presents When Did You Stop Dancing? at Edge Hill Arts Centre – written and performed by Rachel McBride.
There’s a special ticket offer for this performance – you can book two tickets for the price of one.
Five hundred years after the Dancing Plague of 1518, Rachel retells this story of civil action, investigating how the simple process of dancing liberates us in complex ways.
It’s about female uprising, peaceful protest, what it means to take a stand, and to stand together. Told with tenderness, and truly terrible jokes.
Tickets: £10 / £8 concessions / Free for EHU Students with Arts Centre membership. ON MONDAY, October 15, at 7.30pm, The London Artists Projects present Truth To Power Cafe.
This event is free but booking is required.
Who has power over you, and what do you want to say to them? Truth to Power Cafe is a new international performance event mixing memoir, image, poetry, music, and live and spontaneous testimony from participants rising up in the name of free speech and political activism.
Speaking truth to power has its origins in the anti-war movement, and is now widely accepted to mean saying something to those in authority or positions of trust who don’t want to hear it. Is it to your parents, a sibling, politician, lover, landlord, religious leader, boss, banker or simply your best friend?
It’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.
We welcome participants of all ages, beliefs and backgrounds, who have up to five minutes to respond to the question before a live audience. To take part, sign up at truthto power.co.uk/takingpart-dates/ or email jeremy@london artistsprojects.co.uk for further info.
