Ticket Release

This season the Devised Theatre Festival aims to celebrate artistic individuality.

Every student from the Devised Theatre meta company has been working toward this moment for the past four years. It is with their creative ingenuity and dedication that this festival is possible.

Each company member is vital to the theatre pieces created and the festival as a whole, and because of this, the Festival recognizes each member for their growing artistry. This inventiveness propelled the class into creating four unique works of arts that the Festival will be highlighting.

The four original theatre pieces include a musical expressing thespian life; an immersive physical theatre piece that enters the realm of night terrors; a comedic cabaret focusing on millennial issues; and an interactive circus show that explores spectacle and loneliness.

The Festival runs as series A and Series B.

Series A includes Cast! The Musical and REM while Series B includes Jennaration Y and Inverted Spotlight.

The festival venue is York University, Accolade East Building, Studio 209, from March 20th– March 26th 2017.
