The Reckoning

The Reckoning’ is a new chamber work by Michelle St Anne, with dance artists Imogen Cranna, Cloé Fournier and ensemble in residence, Microfiche - a six-piece improvising ensemble whose music explores minimalist compositional processes to create both long-form and miniature works.

Inspired by recent publications by Sarah Ahmed, Jess Hill and Amy Remeikis, this work explores through the lenses of musicians, dance artists and a theatre maker why we remain wilfully deaf to the subjects that threaten the power of the powerful. This work moves beyond instigating sympathy or empathy. Instead, it stretches our moral imagination so that individuals who find themselves in the toxic cultures of institutions discover empowerment through recognition and a collective voice.

About The Living Room Theatre

The Living Room Theatre creates immersive experiences in unusual and forgotten places to shift perception and engage in critical dialogues reflecting the significant issues of our time. Our mission is to re-define contemporary theatre by giving artists a home to collaborate, be vulnerable, share their work and stretch their practice. Through artistic and scholarly research, we address the epic (systemic injustice and inequality) by amplifying the domestic (themes of trauma and violence).

Supported by The Living Room Theatre, March Dance and 107 presents
