Girls, girls, girls is a new and emotive show from Uncaged Aerial Theatre. Each performer has delved into their personal experience and have asked themselves “What is it like to be a woman?”

What pressures do we feel from society, or is it pressure from ourselves?

What effect does this have on us, and can we break free from these boundaries?

3 women, 3 solos, 3 experiences.

Uncaged Aerial Theatre – Emma Bloomfield, Sarah Dobbs and Rosie Vleugels – is a female-led aerial theatre company. Founded in 2019, they specialise in combining high level aerial with impactful stories. We’re delighted to have them in residency at ARC this week, developing their new show.  

While they’re here, they would love to invite you to an informal Open Rehearsal on Thursday 31 March between 1pm and 4pm if you’d like to see what they’re up to! You’re welcome to come and go as you please during this time.
