«a heresy to burn a book, but acceptable to burn a woman…»

Experience bold dance theatre that breaks new ground. Blending elements of the South Asian dance style Kathak with physical theatre and mime, A Thousand Faces subverts the imagery of Bollywood beauty and Hollywood glamour to discuss violence against women worldwide, in particular, acid attacks.

“a powerful, hard-hitting emotional production that had integrity, honesty and reality at its core.” — BBC

«Extraordinary theatre piece. A gripping, honest story unveiling the deep, inner turmoil of acid-attack victims» — Audience member

'A Thousand Faces' is presented in association with Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI). Although equally unacceptable when acid violence occurs against men, attacks across the world affect women disproportionately, with cases reported in the UK and across South-East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, the West Indies and the Middle East.

Presented in Leeds in association with South Asian Arts-uk and Kala Sangam
