The VAULT Festival is coming to town! From January 24th to March 18th, over three hundred new shows explode across a festival of festivals in their Waterloo home. With new venues, new bars, new food and plenty of surprises, VAULT 2018 is the biggest, fairest platform in London for artists to present innovative, daring work. Here we have a chat with Ceci from Nevertheless She about their musical based around the bizarre disappearance of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson from the world (god we love VAULT Festival).
Powerful women, a dystopian landscape, a puppet of The Rock and brand new catchy tunes? Nevertheless She presents The People’s Rock, our debut musical.
2050. The world but not as we know it. There is no democracy. There is no religion. There is no internet. And teenager Tee couldn’t care less. She’s busy with work, frustrated by family, and obsessed with her hero Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Tee has no interest in politics. She doesn’t think much of the omniscient dictator with his small hands on the country. She doesn’t think much about the wars raging just beyond the wall which surrounds her home. She certainly doesn’t think about what happens to people who mysteriously “get fired”…
But when The Rock is inexplicably erased from society, Tee is forced to wake up.
Why does no one else care that he’s gone? Why do they pretend he never existed? Why do they keep telling her to shut up?
Tee knows The Rock was real and she won’t rest until she discovers the truth about his disappearance. Something’s cooking and it smells like revolution!
The People’s Rock is the debut musical from Nevertheless She, a collective of female creatives collaborating on works for stage and screen. We’re thrilled to debut our bizzare, genre-bending musical at Vault Festival 2018, 24th to 28th January at The Network Theatre, Waterloo. Come along to enjoy a show that’s surreal and insightful. Laugh, cry, sing, think. And if that doesn’t convince you, it’s also one of the cheapest musicals in London!
The People’s Rock: A Musical is playing at the Network Theatre as part of VAULT Festival from the 24th-28th of January at 19:45. Tickets and more information can be found here.
