New Speak Re-Imagined | Online | Until 22 May

“I can see what the future will look like.” 

Where are we now, and where are we going? What would you say if you could speak with the future? Can you change the world?

In the last few weeks the world has changed utterly. But while our stages may be dark right now, this broadcast will not be interrupted. From an age of solitude, seven NI-based artists & directors are responding to the Covid-19 crisis while in lockdown. We've moved our artist-led initiative New Speak online and into your homes, with compelling, invigorating and urgent new work that speaks to where we are right now; from Amadan Ensemble, Dominic Montague, Katie Richardson, Lata Sharma, and Zara Janahi, and directed by Emily Foran and Oisín Kearney.

These artists have each created a dynamic short performance piece that seeks to engage with the urgent questions raised by our current political, social and economic moment; reflecting on how we got here, and imagining where we go next.

New Speak: Re-Imagined is available to view for free from 24th April – 22nd May. Due to the nature of the material, the production age recommendation is 14+. 

Tickets for New Speak: Re-Imagined are free, but we are asking our audiences to consider making a small donation if they can afford it as you enjoy this broadcast from your home. Thank You!

If you'd like to tell us what you thought of any of our New Speak Re-Imagined episodes, please do drop us a line with your feedback here. We'd love to hear from you!

Please note that all filming took place in line with government regulations during the lockdown period. All pieces featuring more than one person are from the same household and all outdoor activities were filmed as part of the one piece of exercise per day.

There is no booking required for this event. Episode 4 is available now on our YouTube channel!
