Gritty dance theatre by the Rhiannon Faith Company

Review this show


With autobiographical testimonials and text giving voice to the vulnerable and unheard. With tenderness and honesty, DROWNTOWN holds up a mirror to a society at tipping point.

Six strangers, weighed down by individual darkness, come to a coastal land. Seemingly abandoned, there is no one to help but themselves. Stuck between the remains of a broken community and the vast bleakness of the sea, they struggle with isolation, shame and failed support systems.

Choreographer Rhiannon Faith makes socially conscious work that raises awareness and lobbies for change. She asks here how we can champion authentic belonging for every person and save them from drowning. Originally programmed to appear in our Pit Theatre in 2020, this filmed production was rehearsed in isolation and recorded at Harlow Playhouse in May 2021.

Join us for the world premiere screening on 1 June at 7pm followed by a Facebook Live Q&A at 8.45pm with Rhiannon Faith who will be joined by psychologist Joy Griffiths and other creatives to celebrate the film release.

Age Recommendation: 16+
