Third Angel & RashDash present

There Were Goddesses

A short film presented as part of The Small Celebrations


In the woods you can listen to the sound of your own breath
In the woods you can climb and hang from trees
In the woods you don’t have to explain who you are

Three women perform in a show. A show that plays every night for weeks and weeks, over and over and over again. One night they escape and retreat into the trees, the mud, the leaves…

The Small Celebrations

To mark Third Angel’s 21st year, we have commissioned new performance films from some of the brilliant artists we have worked with as mentors and collaborators over the last few years. Following screenings at the Where From Here symposium at Leeds Beckett University and The Showroom cinema in Sheffield, we are releasing the films here for free.
