“…if this is your space to speak, then speak”
An exciting first work-in-progress sharing of the Quiet Girls project from our Associate Artist Gemma Kerr, filmed in our Studio Theatre in October, is now available.
Quiet Girls is a new piece by writer and director Gemma and has been conceived and created with a community ensemble of women, all of whom identify as quiet. The performance weaves together Gemma’s own journey as a quiet girl and mother with dialogue, text, movement and song into an exploration of what quietness is - interrogating who quiet girls really are, and how the world might make way for those who are unheard.
Gemma said: “Quiet Girls has been developed with support from Arts Council England, The Point and through a participant project with local women. We're looking forward to producing the full show later this year, and are happy to be able to share this glimpse of the show so far.”
