SHATTER - A Suffragette Story

Shatter’ is a new contemporary dance work about the British Suffragettes produced and performed by one of the most “exciting and innovative” youth-run dance companies in Australia, with live orchestra.

After opening to rave reviews in October 2017, the young artists of Spark Youth Dance Company are taking their emotional 90-minute contemporary dance work about the Suffragettes on tour in 2018. This fusion of passionate storytelling, dance and live music is not to be missed.

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.
