A young girl ready to die to defend what she thinks is right meets a king determined to impose his will as the rule of law.

Scottish Dance Theatre Artistic Director, Joan Clevillé, presents an intimate solo work created in collaboration with acclaimed performer Solène Weinachter. Using his distinctive mixture of dance, theatre, and storytelling, Clevillé examines the notion of dissent in democracy, and how the female body can be the target of oppression but also a powerful tool for resistance.
