An avant-garde window into the life of a woman using sex to run from her past, and the freedom and redemption she finds in her former lover.

Zarascasket is a choreopoem play selected for the 2015 RADA Festival, and previously had its R&D performance at Paddington Arts Centre, through winning New Heritage Theatre Scratch Night '14. The production boasts a  diverse cast , visceral storyline and stylistic vision that has yet to be fully explored on London stages. Presenting a unique interweaving of different motifs with an equally novel plot at its core.

We are keen for a run of the production, with the project on pause until funding/investment has been secured. We are open to collaboration so do get-in-touch

The play centers on Zara’s attempts to escape her past any way she can. She must battle her own demons, and the demand for her salvation from a former lover. Zara’s world brims with mystique and lyricism; charming a sold out RADA Festival audience. Written by Damilola K Fashola. 

a ‘vulnerable, truthful, naked [performance], with very good use of language - absolutely beautiful!’
