Rebel Rabble

Rebel Rabble

Is listening the most radical act?

Inspired by the local story of Kett’s Rebellion and lockdown’s many tiny transgressions, “Rebel Rabble” is a collision of past and present, weaving modern day tales of rebellion with the ghostly echoes of the local fight for common land.

Using cutting edge 3D spatial audio, silent disco technology, and masked performance, the show explores themes of failure and hope, asking what does rebellion mean to us today? Unfolding on Mousehold Heath—the site of Kett’s rebel camp—Rebel Rabble is a walk in the woods, a collective experience, and a hunt for where the personal and the political intersect.  

“A paradigm of future performance practice.” Richard Hand, UEA
