What happens to young people when their world comes to a standstill?

The Aftermath is an open-air dance theatre piece exploring the passion and agency of youth in the age of COVID-19. In this brand new show devised with the young people of Calderdale, Northern Rascals and Northern Broadsides place them front and centre like never before. 20 young people explore their feelings of isolation, anger and hope about a world hurtling towards a future they will inherit but is out of their control. How can Calderdale’s young people move past a time which has threatened their prospects, power and place?

“we’ve being stopped in our tracks. The promised world is changing. What are we waiting for?.”

Northern Rascals is a Hebden Bridge Dance Company who have teamed up with Northern Broadsides and The Piece Hall to bring you this explosive piece of dance theatre in the unparalleled surroundings of the world's last remaining eighteenth-century Cloth Hall. Make sure you have booked your free tickets so you can join us for one of the many performances that will occupy the The Piece Hall courtyard throughout the weekend of 26 and 27 September in this celebration of live performance.
