Ghost Ships

25th September - 28th September

Image of three dancers in the foreground with six silhouettes of people standing in the background. The figures are on a ship. The male figure on the right is wearing brown trousers and a white vest and is turning in the air. The female central figure is wearing brown trousers, a white vest, and black boots. She is jumping in the air with her knees bent and has her arms outstretched and crossed over in front of her. The female figure on the left is wearing a long blue dress and black leggings. She is jumping to the side with her arms raised to the side and above. The top of the image is a blue starry night with a black platform.

This major immersive theatre event, from award-winning Icon Theatre, recharts the history of Chatham Dockyard, asking who owns our history and what stories should we tell?

Featuring explosive Hip Hop dance from Olivier Award winners ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company and powerful Kathak from Amina Khayyam Dance Company, original live music, and the choral power of a monumental community ensemble, Ghost Ships tells the true and untold stories of the extraordinary people who built and sailed the ships of Chatham Dockyard around the world.
