To a world that instructs women to be passive and conciliatory, anger is a terrifying thing.

Fuelled by fury, THEM flicks through the journal pages of three survivors of sexual violence, exploring the women’s struggles to navigate the trauma and its impact on their mental wellbeing, their loss of self, and find healing.

A powerful and gripping display of hip-hop dance, THEM delves deep into an emotional portrayal of dehumanisation, inequality and misogyny. Inspired by American poet and novelist Kim Addonizio’s poem To The Woman Crying Uncontrollably In The Next Stall, this evocative work draws movement from the stark and  vivid imagery of her words.
