Silent Heroines Disco

Following the 2021 success of Silent Heroines – we are back for 2023! Continuing as an immersive theatre show using audio headsets – delving into the untold real-life stories of an all-woman, Bristol-based cast.
Laughter and tears, puberty and menopause, struggles and successes. A range of local Bristol women from different generations and cultures come together to share their real-life stories and experiences of being a woman. Silent Heroines Disco is an immersive theatre piece: through the use of Bluetooth headsets and live performance, this alternative audio show is not to be missed. Put your headsets on and let this all-women cast take you on a journey of what being a woman means to them.

What is a Silent Heroines Disco?
The idea was created by the Dutch company Women Connected, who developed the first Silent Heroines Disco in 2016 for International Women’s Day. Since then, they have grown the idea: performing festivals, touring internationally and inspiring other arts organisations to create their own versions. Jody Cook has followed the journey and chose to stage her own in Lockleaze in 2021 – and now for 2023 is touring it across other sites in Bristol and Weston Super Mare.
