Sweat Factory: an unacceptable, difficult or dangerous working environment...

YMT is proud to present this mesmerising contemporary dance opera at London's premier dance venue, Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells, with music from renowned composer Garth McConaghie, choreography from Rachel Birch-Lawson and libretto from Aoife Manix.

Sweat Factory is a bold and important story of rebellion against the harsh and hazardous world of Sweatshops. Follow our young Outsider on her journey into brutality with bodies roped together and Overseers ruthlessly keeping order. Witness the constant struggle to survive in the fight against the production line, can things truly change?

***** 'Sweat Factory breaks much new ground for YMT, placing contemporary dance against the fabric of a modernist score with minimal spoken dialogue. Within this innovative medium, the piece boldly explores serious, real-world issues whose interpretation by such a young cast of performers demonstrates a maturity beyond their years. The artistic direction activated by this work is one that YMT are keen to pursue further in the future, and this production certainly represents an excellent inaugural venture.' - Musical Theatre Review
