What they say…
Heard of any of them? Neither had we. And we’re meant to be a group of feminists.
Unsung explores the untold stories of four pioneering and inspirational female figures from our past, asking why they, and hundreds like them, have been relegated to the footnotes.
After a critically acclaimed UK tour in 2019, this timely and passionate show from Unsung Collective and Lisa Holdsworth (Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile, Ackley Bridge, Call the Midwife) was set to the stage for spring 2020. Then, covid-19 happened. so, in the true sprit of the determined women whose stories we set out to tell, we turned this knockback into an opportunity. with a soundtrack from Leeds-based three piece electronic band PEAKES.
Unsung is supported using public funding by Arts Council England. With special thanks to Leeds City College and Slung Low.
