Presented by THE RABBLE, State Theatre Company of South Australia and Vitalstatistix

YES is an investigation into the dynamics of power, consent, knowledge, truth and the complexities of one seemingly simple word. From acclaimed feminist theatre makers THE RABBLE, YES is set within an ever-changing physical space, occasionally erupting with manufactured weather events, in which an audience watches two performers answer hundreds of questions.

Shifting between rite of passage, public debate and personal memoir, YES is an unpredictable onslaught that blurs the line between instruction, permission, philosophy and confession.

In this stunning new work, THE RABBLE remind us of the relentless pursuit of answers, understanding and justice, even in a world where solid ground is increasingly hard to find.
