Watch the world premiere of three exhilarating showcases from the next generation of theatre designers. Working with a team of writers, creatives and performers, the Project 2036 cohort have used design as a starting point for the stories they want to tell. What will the theatre look like in 2036?
Devon Muller’s Pawn: Bullied at school for looking Indian. Profiled with his friends by the police for being Black. Jordan’s mixed heritage turns everyday encounters into a game of politics and power. Spoken word and innovative lighting design collide in Devon Muller’s exploration of race and identity, written with Omar Bynon.
QianEr Jin’s One Day: Can’t sleep. Grab a coffee. Don’t forget Po Po’s funeral flowers. QianEr Jin’s immersive film, written by Kathryn Golding, explores Ashley’s story through the eyes of a mayfly, which lives its whole life in the course of a single day.
Latekid’s LimBo: This conceptual music performance video is an interrogation of the ‘self’, racial identity and the anomalies of life, with self produced music and poetry from Latekid (Darius McFarlane).
