The Glass Ceiling by Periplum

About

The Glass Ceiling is an ambitious new visual theatre work marking 100 years since the first British women were given the right to vote. Inspired by the Suffragettes and Suffragists, the show celebrates activists from the Tees Valley region whose courage propelled this historic movement to achieve political recognition.

Periplum brings to life the self-styled ‘feminine incendiaries’, and the men who marched alongside these pioneers of direct action. Sensory, spectacular and ultimately uplifting, this surround performance uses innovative staging and pyrotechnic design, new music, writing and aerial performance in a gritty depiction of the struggle to gain the vote and break through a glass ceiling.

The final performance of the show will take place at Centre Square, Middlesbrough on Saturday 27 October.

The performance is free admission. 

Funded by Arts Council England and Tees Valley Combined Authority, cocommissioned by Stockton International Riverside Festival, Stockton Borough Council, Darlington Borough Council, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, Hartlepool Borough Council and Middlesbrough Council.
