Theater and Performance

Focusing on identity and loss, Crossings is an unashamedly feminist piece challenging our notions of sexual liberation and our perceptions of young girls in gangs.

Seen through the eyes of Shelley, 15, pregnant and on the run. Shelley wants out of the gang, but she’s broken the code. We all know you don’t do that.

In a raging storm she seeks shelter on a strange ship. This is no ordinary ship, it’s the ghost of the Zong, a ship berthed in Liverpool with a murderous history. Through the heroic stories of three powerful voices, she encounters on board, Shelley starts her way towards a new path.

Julie McNamara's work is disability led, passionately political, experimental and startling in its imaginative leaps.
