Show Details

‘The dead are invisible, they are not absent’ - St Augustine


Birth is a powerfully sensitive new piece of visual theatre about being on a precipice, losing and creating a new life.
Emily is six months pregnant when she reads her grandmother's journal.


Delving into the depths of her family history triggers a shift in her sense of reality, unveiling a legacy of unspoken tragedies, courage and unconditional love.


Established in 2009, Theatre Re is a London-based international ensemble creating thought-provoking and moving work. Its shows examine fragile human conditions in compelling, physical style, embracing mime, theatre and live music. Close collaborations with appropriate community groups and experts in different fields including science, philosophy and public health throughout the devising process play a crucial part in the development of its work.


Birth was inspired by the field of psychogenealogy, Frida Kahlo and interviews with women. The live, original music score is by Alex Judd.

Sitting at the heart of one of the most vibrant areas of London, adjacent to Hoxton Square and just minutes from Liverpool Street, Shoreditch Town Hall is a magnificent Grade II landmark building managed by Shoreditch Town Hall Trust.  Built in 1865, and with a heritage as one of the grandest Vestry Halls in London, it was established as an independent arts and events venue in 2004.  Since this time it has established itself as a key part of the cultural landscape, filling a vital need for flexible, non-traditional creative space.
