THEM

Presented by Body Politic
Fuelled by fury, THEM explores three women’s struggle to navigate loss of self, trauma and the impact societal-defined generalisations have on our mental wellbeing.

It is a heavy reality to know that 1 in 4 women in the UK will experience sexual violence at some point in their lives. Roughly 85,0000 women a year*. 

THEM is a vehicle to reflect the upheaval sexual violence has on women today, physically, mentally, and politically. This is an opportunity to use the universal language of Hip Hop to engage with audiences to discuss a poignant topic continually in the headlines. 

“This is an opportunity to create space for discussion, learning and understanding from young audiences around issues of consent and sexual assault, which has become commonplace within school settings.” Emma-Jane Greig, Artistic Director 

Founded in Oxford in 2012, by Emma-Jane GreigBody Politic is a not-for-profit professional Hip Hop Dance Theatre company. 

Body Politic are passionate about bringing cultural experiences to those facing significant barriers. Tackling big themes and challenging subjects, they strive to create meaningful experiences for audiences and participants.
