11th November 2018 in Worcester
Two of Dancefest’s performance groups, DFA (Dancefest Adults) and Chance to Dance Company, come together with choreographer Marie Oldaker, to perform a stirring and poignant piece of dance theatre that highlights how the First World War fundamentally changed the roles of women.
The First World War brought about a quiet social revolution on the Home Front, as many women came out of domestic service to take on the traditional roles of men – in factories, on the land and in skilled trades.
Having waved their loved ones goodbye, women were fighting the Great War on their own doorstep.
Enduring loss, adversity and hardship, they discovered a new sense of purpose and dignity in comradeship, delicate-activism, unity and liberation.
These will be the final performances of this moving piece, much loved by both its dancers and audiences, since its creation in 2014.
The Guildhall, High Street, Worcester, WR1 2EY
A second performance of Quiet Revolution will take place as part of the Beacons of Light event at Fort Royal Park at 6pm.
