The Rabble and Vitalstatistix present
YES is an investigation into the dynamics of power, consent, knowledge, truth and the complexities of one seemingly simple word. From acclaimed feminist theatre makers THE RABBLE, YES 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, YES is an unpredictable onslaught that blurs the line between instruction, permission, philosophy and confession.
In this stunning new work, co-commissioned by Vitalstatistix, THE RABBLE remind us of the relentless pursuit of answers, understanding and justice, even in a world where solid ground is increasingly hard to find.
YES is a co-commission of Vitalstatistix, RISING and Arts House. YES is produced by Performing Lines and supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, the South Australian Government and The Besen Family Foundation.
Tickets to YES are currently available as an add-on to a 2022 Subscription, at the end of the online booking process, or in the booking form at the back of the 2022 brochure.
Single tickets will be available via the Vitalstatistix website.
