Join us for a pensive and emotional dance show.

In this stark, stripped-back performance, five dancers move through a series of mysterious and experimental rites of passage, channelling past, present and future tensions through their bodies and voices.

As if to exorcise the haunted house of history, the dancers whisper, jump, wrestle, shiver, wail and laugh, filling the space with horrors, both real and imagined.

It Begins in Darkness is an environment for processing the fear, anger and confusion which arise from the histories of slavery and colonialism that haunt the present.
