Northern Rascals’ brand-new dance-theatre show uses visual art, spoken word and dance to raise awareness of the mental health issues many young people face

Performed by a cast of four skilled dancers in a pop-up structure, SHED invites its audience to stand outside and look in. Real-life experiences are told in a series of three shorts, each giving a different insight into the stories that make us.

SHED is an engaging, ultimately uplifting, beautifully written and choreographed portrait of confused emotions, love and loss and the essential humanity that resides in us all.
