Craft presents a harrowing yet physically gripping theatrical production A Question of Consent at The Rag Factory, London in January 2014.
A Question of Consent will run from 10th January to 2nd February 2014 at The Rag Factory, 16-18 Heneage St, London E1 5LJ.
A Question of Consent is based on a true story created from the memories of a woman very close to the company. A few years ago, she was forced to move house, and then groomed and raped on a daily basis for a month of her life by an elderly man. How did she get out? How did she deal with the trauma after? A Question of Consent is an account of how Stockholm Syndrome can occur, how circumstance can dictate identity, how the after effects of such a horrendous circumstance can be everlasting, and how she found the strength to prevail.
Using exhaustion and memories as a template to create, Craft are a theatre company who are authentic, powerful, intense and grounded in the way they perform. As a company they have spent in excess of six months training and destroying their bodies and minds on a daily basis to create this dramatic thriller, which is underpinned by current studies in cognitive neuroscience.
A Question of Consent promises to push the boundaries of the “traditional theatre” to create an exciting and rich experience for the audience.
A Question of Consent is created by CRAFT and directed by Rocky Rodreguiz Jr and performed by Iulia Benze, Lucas John Mahoney, Kurt Murray and Ryan Prescott.
