The Way They Were Then

Premiere at Robin Howard Dance Theatre, February 2017. Reworked 2018/19.


Inspired by Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano’s collection of short stories entitled Mujeres, Feet off the Ground shine light on a number of women’s journeys and explore female empowerment, oppression, rebellion and unity. During the research and development process, the collective worked closely with a group of local women in Nottingham whose voices and stories have directly informed the work.
