An Assembly, Riverside Studios and Poorna Jagannathan Production
Presented by Southbank Centre, Oldham Coliseum, Cast and Black Country Touring as part of Alchemy Oldham 2015.
A dramatic performance based upon a true incident and the life events of the performers.
On the night of December 16 2012 a young woman and her male friend boarded a bus in urban Delhi heading for home. What followed changed the lives of these two people and countless others forever.
Internationally acclaimed playwright and director Yaël Farber creates a searing new work that cracks open the silence around women whose lives have been shattered by gender-based violence.
With an extraordinary cast and creative team from India, Farber brings us a blistering evocation of that terrible night and the ripples of change it set in motion. Tearing away the shame that keeps the survivors silent Nirbhaya is a voyage into a tapestry of personal testimonies that speaks for both a nation and a world no longer able to hold the tides of change at bay.
Suitable for 16+
Contains strong language and sexual violence
The performance is 90 minutes with no interval.
Nirbhaya is a part of Alchemy. Presented by Southbank Centre, London, Black Country Touring, Cast in Doncaster and Oldham Coliseum Theatre.
