Unit 2, Queens Yard, White Post Lane, Hackney Wick, E9 5EN London, United Kingdom
NOW, The Yard's annual festival of radical performance is back with 5 weeks of 5 double bills that are loud, messy, political and raw.
Anton Mirto | The Army
“to commit, to breathe, to hurt, to fight, to be for or against an idea, to be stronger than I think I am…” Founder of the celebrated performance company A2, Anton Mirto returns to The Yard following her sublimely ritualistic show earning innocence (NOW 14). The Army speaks of urgency and objection. Through a visceral language of resilience and dysfunctionality, it sees a woman march against apathy, for healing, purpose and power.
Emma Frankland | Hearty
Emma Frankland returns to The Yard to follow the sell-out Rituals For Change at NOW 16 (★★★★ “tender, brave and brilliant” WhatsOnStage) with an exploration of HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) and its history. She explores attitudes to menopause alongside the liberation of her own body as a transgender woman. Inspired by conversations with women around the world, Hearty celebrates growth, ageing, transformation.
