Crackle. Dust. – Company of Others

‘Beautiful & Urgent’ Audience Member

‘Brilliant Representation and Integrity’ Audience Member

Crackle. Dust. is an unveiling of women’s resilience, a call to action and a sharing of power.

Made in collaboration with women from the North, the work shares their experiences of endings that have had a life changing impact through exquisite choreography, live sound and spoken word.

Crackle. Dust. witnesses and celebrates the silence breakers, survivors and the hopeful in our region. This profoundly moving performance will put a fire in your belly and change the way you think about endings.

This show will be captioned. Kala Sangam is a wheelchair accessible venue. To discuss your access needs further please email: pippa@companyofothers.org.uk

Please note: This performance contains scenes of grief and sexual violence. We want audiences to feel free to leave the space should they feel the need to.

Crackle. Dust. is supported by public funding through Arts Council National Lottery Grants with additional commissioning support from Arc Stockton, Dance City, GemArts, Kala Sangam, Newcastle Culture Investment Fund, Northumberland Arts Development and Well Newcastle Gateshead.

With special thanks to the women who have shared their experiences with us in order to inform the work.

From Spring 2019 the majority of performances at Kala Sangam are now Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!

We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Kala Sangam, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

All money collected helps pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.

Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.
