Rhiannon Faith receives ACE funding for new show Smack That (a conversation) coming to you in 2017


Rhiannon Faith is delighted to announce her new project Smack That (a conversation) has just received funding from Arts Council England.  The project is commissioned by Harlow Playhouse and Safer Places, the leading charity in Essex supporting victims of Domestic Abuse.

Smack That (a conversation) is about resilience and survival, where dancers and the women who attend Safer Places come together to unite, celebrate and tell their stories.

For the past few months Rhiannon Faith has run participatory workshops with women survivors through the support of the Safer Places team to create a show that changes the way we talk and think about domestic abuse. The show will be ready for an early sharing in the Spring and touring from Autumn 2017.

Additional support includes Richmix, Openlab at the Barbican, Dance East and Arts Depot.

For any further details about the project or if you want to support in any way please contact maddy@rhiannonfaith.com
