POSTPONED DUE TO ILLNESS - keep an eye on this page for new dates
Yellow Ribbons follows the story of Cara, a young woman with dreams of becoming a professional dancer, who suffers with a debilitating gynaecological condition. Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women worldwide and is a condition that can affect sufferers' whole lives, often costing them their careers, friendships, and relationships.
Cara, like many women, in her teenage years begins to experience worrying symptoms such as severe pain and cramping in her abdomen and repeated visits to her GP go unheard. Eventually, Cara is taken into hospital and given an emergency surgery. So begins, a long journey in which Cara must learn to become an advocate for herself, repair and re-establish relationships, and learn to live a fulfilling life despite the constant battle she fights unseen.
Yellow Ribbons examines the impact Endometriosis can have on a woman's life and the people who love her, while also giving voice to the community of women who suffer from it. Using comedy and movement, the piece tackles difficult yet important issues surrounding women's health and disability, that is often invisible.
Yellow Ribbons is a charity project, aiming to raise money for Endometriosis UK, a small charity with a big cause. The project hopes to raise money to help the charity as they support the women suffering from this invisible disease and further important research into better diagnosis, better treatments, and eventually a cure, as there is currently no cure for Endometriosis.
