‘In My Shoes’ | Blog By Timothy Bei

On the 8th November Sheffield based Hip Hop Theatre group Rationale Productions performed their very first show ‘In My Shoes’. The group have been officially together for a year and have been relentlessly working on this project since the very start. I was delighted to be one of the 700 spectators to be seeing the show […]

Rationale performed work in progress extracts from In My Shoes as part of the Crucible's Platforms series during the week-long National Theatre Connections festival. The extracts were performed in the Crucible foyer to the audiences attending that evening's NT Connection performances. The dance extracts displayed a strong sense of ensemble discipline and the definite potential to be developed into an exciting integrated performance piece. The audience was very appreciative of the work on the night. This bodes well for the premiere of the fully developed work on the Crucible stage this November as part of our 40th birthday celebrations, designed to shine a spotlight on Sheffield-based artists and communities. — Andrew Loretto, Creative Producer, Sheffield Theatres

Rationale brought a slick, fresh, current flavour to our performance programme. They were a joy to work with and are one of the most interesting groups emerging out of Yorkshire. I look forward to working with them in the future. — Sarah Shead Artist Development and Project Manager
Bags of talent for dancing and storytelling, this company have huge potential and are one to watch — Wieke Eringa, CEO and Artistic Director of Yorkshire Dance
