The Devised Theatre Festival premieres four riveting new collaborative productions — each conceived, created, produced and performed by fourth-year students in Devised Theatre in the Department of Theatre’s Performance Creation & Research program.
Each show is presented by a production company formed by a student ensemble within Devised Theatre.
The four shows are dead skin, a grotesque and physical exploration of the darkness within by Four Eyes Collective; #Filters, which challenges the way we connect on a daily basis by Transcendence Theatre; Refraction, a supernatural thriller where a woman is confronted by her past by Catapulse Collective; and After George, a revealing drama which plays out inside a high school anniversary reunion by Atomic Oddity Productions.
