THE RABBLE (Kate Davis and Emma Valente) was formed in 2006 from a desire to make visually ambitious, political, feminist and formally experimental work. THE RABBLE radically re-imagines theatrical experiences to repopulate familiar stories with female voices and aesthetics pointing at subterranean feminist concepts in iconic stories from folklore and literature. Our unique productions are realised through sweeping design and intense theatricality. We have abandoned male-dominated play scripts and replaced them with an improvisational methodology using poetry, prose, image, tableaus and gesture.
In 2017, THE RABBLE celebrates over 10 years of works to a ticketed audience of over 12,000. In the last 4 years we have produced 6 new works, 2 tours, 6 creative developments, 5 residencies and 2 curated events.
