Futuristic Folktales

About Futuristic Folktales

Futuristic Folktales is an experimental dance theatre performance using contemporary, breaking and Scottish Highland dance, it questions the preservation of tradition, myth and identity, and scrutinises borders, body politics and reproductive injustice.

It tells the momentous tale of the first womb, humbly attempting to unify humanity through the infinite narrative of birth.

The performers share their folk story so far, inviting you to experience resistance as the work imitates the hostile environment of a womb. An environment where life and death coexist. Futuristic Folktales seeks to further dance as a form of political protest and a space for collective reckoning, otherwise, why dance?

Recommended for ages 14+

ACCESS
A visual story will be available.
There will be fidget toys, ear plugs and ear defenders offered to audiences. Audiences are invited to move, make noise and leave and re-enter the space as they wish
