Welcome

Foundation Degree 2nd Year Ensemble

Thu 19 – Sat 21 May 2022

Directed by Jason Dupree

This show is

Option 1:
An exhibition of selves. The starting point was an exploration of self and has now morphed into something new. If you put all your items on a plinth, what would it tell us about you? Would it be the whole story?
Option 2:
This is a performance.
This is an exhibition.
This is not a performance.
This is not an exhibition.
There will be circus, there will be music, there will be fun.
Option 3:
We don’t know yet, we’re still making it and will find out on the first night what it is.
