Description

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.

Beautiful, moving journey through chronic pain, surgery, and consequences. Felt very honest and heartfelt as a piece done through dance and cinema about things we don't talk about in public. Inclusive of older dancers, which is a huge plus! 5/5

Liz Lea is a generous, frank and gutsy performer and it is massively moving to see just how many of the older women in her audience go wild with the joy of suddenly being seen, understood, celebrated.

Red is different, one of those extraordinary works that defies categorisation.
