HERE LIES

Here Lies is a ballet/immersive music experience between a dancer and a cellist, exploring the lives of unrecorded women buried in Sheffield General Cemetery, by an all-female, diverse creative team. The duet is a magic realist narrative about women’s plight to claim space for ourselves in a world that repeatedly buries us – be it in constructs or earth. The performance is 10 minutes long.
