Rosalind

£18 (£12 concessions)

Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Venture deeper into the modern metropolis, where conservative days turn into wonderous nights. Follow the curious and courageous Rosalind as she embarks on a pursuit of enlightenment, fuelled by love and oppression.

400 years on since Shakespeare wrote his iconic play As You Like It, what has changed in society? In this unique production created in collaboration with Korean dancers and artists, Cousins asks ‘do women still need to take on stereotypical masculinity in order to find equality in our modern world’?

“Choreography that feels freshly minted…. Cousins is a talent to watch”  The Guardian (UK) 


Age recommendation 12+
