Dance Away The Spiders is a physical piece of theatre that had its first sharing at HOME as part of PUSH Festival 2019.
The participants are from different ethnic backgrounds, from different parts of Greater Manchester and they have never experienced theatre before. Nevertheless, they appeared confident and strong.
Some feedback from the audience:
''The show was beautiful. I found it delicate, interesting and tenderly handled.''
'It was great to see the women take ownership of the stage and really get so much out of the process.''
Sheba Arts was selected to produce this commission for Push Festival 2019 at HOME, Manchester.
