The other is a synth and electro call to action on the effects of global warming, Sentinel, conceived and composed by Richard Evans of bands James and St Vitus Dance, on Thursday 21.

The penultimate performance is Women-Wise from all-female dance theatre company Untold on Friday 22. It powerfully dissects the issues and explores the taboo of being a woman using true stories. The festival closes on Saturday 23 with innovative, vintage style circus-dance show, The Band.

All performances take place at the University of Sheffield Drama Studio, just off Glossop Road. Details at www.enableus.group.shef.ac.uk
