Dismantle Festival

See events

A series of events and performances, created and curated by the current cohort of Project 2036, Milli Bhatia, Ingrid Marvin and Nina Segal.

How do we dismantle existing power structures, both in theatre and the wider world? And what should we build in their place?

Through workshops, installations, interactive performance and a house party, Dismantle: a Festival about Power will interrogate these questions.

Throughout their residency, this year’s Project 2036 cohort have committed to widening access and sharing resources. To actively practice the redistribution of power, they have partnered with three Associate Companies, Skin Deep, Art+Feminism and Sisters Uncut, who will deliver the workshop events.

24 July-4 Aug 2018
