Blending dance, theatre, film projection and voice recordings, this show imagines what women, trans and non-binary people would do after dark if they felt free. It’s a joyful expression of all the wonderful things we might get up to in public spaces if safety wasn’t such a crucial priority.
Curfew is about reclaiming the conversation around sexual assault and harassment, and the performance is choreographed to a score of verbatim voice recordings from local Worthing people to whom Calico Theatre asked the question, ‘What would you do if men had a curfew?’ Dance through the streets at night? Sleep in a park? Walk home without being afraid?
Please also join us for a post-show discussion with Calico Theatre, exploring the themes in the show in an inclusive community space. A curfew is not the solution, but there is a problem. Join the conversation. Taking place after the performances on Saturday 25th June at 6:30pm & 8:30pm in the Pavilion Atrium.
‘Giving us a moment of dreaming into how it would feel to be able to feel completely free’ – Audience Review
This special Worthing performance was developed with contributions from local organisations Turning Tides and Safe in Sussex. Participants from both groups lent their thoughts as voice recordings to the show, and gave valuable input into the project by sharing their lived experience.
Please Note Although tickets are free, we recommend booking a ticket so we can keep you up to date with any last minute venue/time changes that may occur due to weather etc.
