Remember that 16-year-old house party when you did that thing with that boy in your mate’s parents’ bathroom? Me Too.
Superman is an experimental, gig-theatre project working with students and young people to unravel ideas of consent when we’re young through daring alternative music, chorus work, spoken word and soundscape.
Stemming from a lack of education and confusion around consent and relationships as teenagers and young adults; Superman uses stories and interviews with young people about early sexual experiences and rape culture to encourage conversation around the taboo.
Following Rose Eye's Superman workshop at the University of East Anglia and it's sell out performance at Camden People's Theatre's 'Calm Down Dear' Festival in 2019, Superman is coming to The Vaults Festival for 2020.
Join us in challenging, confusing and interrogating ideas of consent by jumping unashamedly into the depths of the 'grey area'.Book Now

A Younger Theatre **** “Sarah Carton is pure dynamite [...] steady synths raging against the gloom”
Three Weeks **** “Listening to song, rap and spoken word, the audience is gripped”
Fest "A striking new voice"
The Sunday Times “She surrenders herself in a fever of hypnotic song and monologue. Funny & devastating in equal part”
