Marking Anti-Slavery Day with special performance at The Montgomery

INTERNATIONAL contemporary dance and physical theatre company The Natashas Project returns to Sheffield theatre and arts venue The Montgomery this Thursday with a new work marking Anti-Slavery Day 2018.

On Demand is a new dance production and awareness initiative using dance and physical theatre to explore the depths and effects of human trafficking and modern day slavery.

The production follows the movement of five characters as they share with audiences the physical and psychological effects trafficking and slavery has on the body and mind.

The production sets out to challenge perceptions and assumptions through themes of manipulation, disorientation and ultimately dehumanisation.

And thanks to funding support from the JG Graves Trust, the company will be going into Sheffield’s Silverdale School during their visit to run educational workshops with Year 9 pupils, raising awareness of the issues surrounding human trafficking and equipping them with the skills to stay safe online.

The global slavery index currently states there are 45.8 million in modern day slavery.

The Natashas Project is an international contemporary dance/physical theatre company founded in 2013.

Its aim is to use dance to inform and equip the public about Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery and support survivors through creative means.

The performance at The Montgomery in Surrey Street begins at 7.30pm on Thursday October 18 and runs for 45 minutes plus Q&A.

Tickets cost £10 and are available on 0114 2373456 or online at TheMontgomery.org.uk. Suitable for 12+
