YES

An investigation into the dynamics of power, consent, knowledge, truth and the complexities of saying yes, YES is a new performance work-in-development by acclaimed feminist theatre makers THE RABBLE.

Set within an everchanging and unpredictable physical space, occasionally erupting with manufactured weather events, an audience watches two performers with one thousand questions and answers. Is this a TV set, a weather report, an interrogation, an interview or an existential search for truth?

Peering in, the audience are subject to the joys and horrors of a woman saying yes and to their own relationship to seeking answers and agreement.

Part rite of passage, part public debate, part personal memoir, part physical competition: YES will conjure an orgasm, a confession, a false confession, a proposal, an investigation, a promotion, an abortion, a rape, a pregnancy, a first word, an agreement, a war, a resolution, a question, an illness, a death, a fact and a fiction.
