Dispatches On The Red Dress
The Makerspace at Portland Works, SHEFFIELD
Thursday, 24 Jun 2021, 7:30pm - Saturday, 26 Jun 2021, 10:00pm
Dispatches on the Red Dress is an intimate new show by twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning songwriter Rowan Rheingans and dramaturg Liam Hurley.
Unravelling the joy and pain from a story of her grandmother’s youth in 1940s Germany, Rowan celebrates small acts of resistance and boldly asks a troubling question for our times: can hope for our future be found in the very darkest pockets of our history?
An award-winning show at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, adventurous writing meets the warmth of a folk gig in this heartfelt one woman performance, weaving immersive storytelling with live fiddle, banjo and original songs taken from Rowan's debut solo album The Lines We Draw Together (The Guardian's Folk Album of the Month).
