Red | Liz Lea | 16-28 August

Red | Liz Lea | 16-28 August

Red is fearless, Red is fierce, Red is powerful – a one-woman dance theatre work with a hint of fun and fabulousness. You will laugh, you’ll cry, you won’t forget. A poignant, riotous, glamorous and ultimately triumphant exploration of one woman’s story – an exquisite exploration of female endurance. Described as unforgettable, shattering and hilarious, Red is a soul-baring retelling of one woman’s journey through illness and recovery with an eye to the future. Honest, face-to-face dialogue with the audience, balanced with beautifully framed film and movement. 

“Astonishing... a truly remarkable piece of dance theatre with the coherence that only exceptional dramaturgy can achieve” 
Canberra Times
