Silent Heroines’ Disco
The Silent Heroines’ Disco is an alternative audio and immersive theatre piece performed by an all-female cast. It was established by Rotterdams Wijktheater project Women Connected, a community arts network for women in Rotterdam.
We held our first Silent Heroines’ Disco back in October 2018, when a group of women living in Glasgow developed their own performance exploring their life experiences. Through headphones the audience listened to the women’s powerful stories of loss, dreams, strength and survival. Take a look at the pictures and videos below for a feel for the day!
In April 2019 our Learning colleagues Elly Goodman and Carly McCaig travelled to Theatre Rotterdam Schouwburg for Silent Heroines XL - a celebration with 1,000 women of all cultures, generations and backgrounds telling their stories together. Click here to read all about the inspirational event.
We've loved collaborating with and learning from Women Connected and look forward to continuing our international partnership. Keep an eye out for more projects coming soon!
