Emily: An English-Language Noh

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

One of the most important moments in women's political history has been reinterpreted in a super interesting way by a Japanese theatre group in its traditional 'noh' form.

'Emily' looks at the life of Herbert Jones, the jockey that killed Emily Davison on 4 June 1913, as the Suffragettes' fight for the female vote intensifies.

Think masks, dances and chanting – all used to tell an unusual part of the story of Suffrage. It's political history – with a weird, worldly twist.
