What will theatre be like in 2036? Take a look.

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.

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. Directed by Daniel Bailey and filmed live at the Bush Theatre.

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. Directed by Daniel Bailey, with animation by Nicholas Wong and music composed by YingEr Jin.

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) and co-directed by Avenhue. Filmed live at the Bush Theatre.
