Don’t You Dare! is a multi-award winning show that combines Storytelling, Physical Theatre, Political Satire and a contemporary reinterpretation of the Masks of Commedia dell’Arte.

It’s 1601: a famous actress accused of mesmerising her audiences, stands trial for witchcraft. As the trial unfolds, the people turn against her hypnotised by fear and propaganda. In drawing parallels between the violent oppression of the Inquisition and the hate speech of contemporary politics, Don’t You Dare! invites us to reflect on the witch hunts of our present times.
