The Rabble

30 Mar 2022 to 10 Apr 2022

An investigation into the dynamics of power, consent, knowledge, truth and the complexities of one seemingly simple word.

YES is an investigation into the dynamics of power, consent, knowledge, truth and the complexities of one seemingly simple word. This new performance work by acclaimed feminist theatre makers THE RABBLE is set within an ever-changing physical space, occasionally erupting with manufactured weather events, in which an audience watches two performers answer hundreds of questions. 

Shifting between rite of passage, public debate and personal memoir, this unpredictable onslaught blurs the line between instruction, permission, philosophy and confession. The questions are relentless – even overwhelming – reminding us of the unyielding pressures of seeking answers and understanding. 

In a world where objective and rational answers are more and more impossible to find, THE RABBLE seeks to disrupt our obsession the notion of absolute and singular truths, to disempower the makers of meaning and create a more communal process of searching.

“Almost everything THE RABBLE has made since it was founded in 2006 has been extraordinary.”
– The Age

“No one else in Australia is making theatre like this. Brave, tough, smart, unapologetic.”
– ABC Online

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “A universal unforgettable masterpiece of performance art”
– The Times (UK) on Unwoman
