RADAR 2012

Sold out

This November, the Bush explores the future of new writing with a three week festival. RADAR 2012 sees performances from some of the UK’s most exciting artists, reveals sneak peeks of work in progress, and presents a series of provocative talks and debates led by theatre makers from across the industry.

Join us as we challenge the conventions of how new writing is made, shared and seen, and discover the next generation of new writing talent.

RADAR 2012 also includes a second evening of Bush Bounce – a one night performance event for young artists currated by Bush Associate Artist Sabrina Mahfouz.

RADAR PERFORMANCES:
Chewing Gum Dreams, written and performed by Michaela Coel
Chapel Street by Luke Barnes
The Looking Screen by Anne Chmelewsky
Beats by Kieran Hurley
Lovesong by Ché Walker, with music by Omar Lyefook
Boy in a Dress by La JohnJoseph
