There’s a shadow coming, across the sea. Long and terrifying. The vultures are circling, the wolves are howling… how can we weather this storm? The global economy is a mess. The crash has landed, the tide’s swept out, and it’s taken our hope with it. There’s less in our pockets and more to be spent. The rich have got richer, the middle’s squeezed tight, and the poor are being dragged ever downwards. With the true value of money and the human cost of greed firmly in their sights, tell the story of how a nation raised their voices in protest and railed against the currents. Using original text, performance, film, music and animation, is about finding strength, overcoming a world designed to keep us docile, and how collective power can move a mountain – even if only a little. The Audit was commissioned by Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, ARC (Stockton), Oxford Playhouse, Lancaster Arts at Lancaster University, hAb/ Word of Warning (Manchester) and artsdepot (London).

BeautifuL is a new dance theatre work directed by the award-winning Sally Marie, Artistic Director of Sweetshop Revolution. ‘BeautifuL’ encompasses movement and text, exploring love and sexuality from the female point of view; what is fantasised about, desired and permissible within the complex web of social structures, expectations and cultural history. Five extraordinary female dancers lead us through their own experiences of sexuality and love, contrasted with an exploration of the history of women’s sexuality over time.

We live in a time of gender fluidity, polyamory and moving away from the idea of a fixed identity or stereotype. Taking the autobiography of each woman and embedding it into the global – ‘BeautifuL’ will celebrate the solidarity of women, by taking femininity to a more deeply truthful place – past the gloss of media spin and pressure to conform. Essentially, ‘BeautifuL’ is a doorway into a dialogue about how women and men are experiencing relationships, sexuality and the body right now. At the heart of it lies a question: how do we love and how has it changed? Supported by Lincoln Performing Arts Centre Start Time: 7.30pm Tickets: £12.50 Full // £10.50 Concessions // £5 LIVE PASS (Students & Under 26s) Running Time:
