Feet off the Ground - The Way They Were Then

Thursday 10 October 2019
Tickets £8 (£6)

Feet off the Ground are delighted to invite you to the performance of The Way They Were Then, a dance piece inspired by Eduardo Galeano’s book entitled ‘’Mujeres’’, a collection of short stories about women who left imprints big and small across the globe. The piece explores themes of female empowerment, oppression, rebellion and unity.


Feet off the Ground was established in 2013 by its four founding members: Lucia Chocarro, Robyn Holder, Sophie Thorpe and Patricia Zafra. The company endeavours to reflect on human behaviours by presenting an ensemble solely managed and performed by women, encompassing both sensitive and highly physical movement. Feet off the Ground utilises Contact Improvisation and Partnering techniques as a common ground for research and performance devising. The Company have performed in the UK and Europe.

Feet off the Ground will be bringing the piece to the Squire Performing Arts Centre. The collective will be joined by a group of girls from Nottingham who have been working closely with the company to create a short dance piece that will be showcased alongside The Way They Were Then. A short piece created by Feet off the Ground will also be performed on the night by students from Bilborough College.

There will also be a post-show Q&A, an opportunity to gain further insight into the company and their work.

This project is supported by Nottingham Girls High SchoolArts Council EnglandChisenhale Dance Space and James Allen’s Girls’ School.

Essex 1968. Like millions of other working women, each morning Rita O’Grady is just trying to get her husband out of bed, get the kids off to school and get to work at the factory on time. But life is about to change forever when it’s announced that the girls in the stitching room of Ford’s Dagenham car plant will have their pay grade dropped to ‘unskilled’. Quickly drawing on a strength she never knew she had, Rita leads her friends in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union supposed to protect them. As the girls’ inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the pressure is too much for some, but can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for?

Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.
