If Not Now
This stunning large-scale outdoor movement and dance-based production features a cast of over 100 performers, breath-taking visuals projected onto the walls of Rochester Castle, original new music and spoken word.
In Icon’s signature style, the production will be created and performed by professional theatre-makers alongside a collective of residents including community groups, local schools and young people supported by Icon Theatre’s Theatre31 programme.
Influenced by the sweeping changes worldwide that have been unleashed through the response to Covid-19, If Not Now will give voice to local stories and explore how communities can come together to challenge and transform poverty, prejudice, and the climate crisis, and look at historical moments which have launched extraordinary social change, including the establishment of the NHS and welfare state.
The show is free to attend as part of Medway Light Nights, a free spectacular festival of light that will transform Rochester’s iconic buildings and spaces into works of art.
