Meet The Rawcus Ensemble
Ahead of their new work Here We Are Amongst You
Rawcus is a critically acclaimed long-term ensemble of 14 performers with diverse minds, bodies and imaginations. For over 22 years the company has been creating audacious performances and arts experiences. Collaborating with a core creative team, Rawcus devises new work that expresses the imaginative world of the Ensemble. Drawing on dance, theatre and visual art disciplines, the work is crafted with a precision that supports the performers but allows space for their inherent sense of anarchy. Rawcus’ performance aesthetic is characterised by a marriage of intense physicality and arresting visual imagery. Rawcus’ work is sculptural, unexpected, beautiful, funny and tender.
The Ensemble Statement
Rawcus is us. We are not afraid.
It is about performing, expanding the world, transforming.
It is about vulnerability, creativity, openness and relationships.
We all come from different backgrounds and we all have different experiences. We play and work together.
We bring love to the work and that love is returned to us when we share what we do.
Rawcus is about achieving something together, about commitment, challenge and making space for unexpected things to happen.
Long story short…that is the force of Rawcus.
