Ground-breaking in its execution

SYNOPSIS

IMG_1831.jpg

Rosie is a young woman living through the era of the Suffrage movement in London, 1908; a movement that wanted to grant women the right to vote.

After growing up with a passionate Suffragette mother, Rosie turns away from women’s rights, fearing being completely outcast by society. As the Suffragettes gain momentum in their protests through rallies and violent acts, Rosie is pulled into the movement and sacrifices all to shatter not only her own glass ceilings, but the world’s as well.

Performed by young contemporary dancers to a live orchestra and choreographed and designed by young creatives, ‘Shatter’ will take you on an epic journey through one of the most incredible eras in our history.
