The Show

Till We Win is a devised performance about growing up different in a small town. It is a conflicting love story about the forgotten people of 2020 and their message to the year 2045. The story follows a group of young people who are always left on the outside. This is about their revolution to be on the inside. The show combines anarchic theatre, risky acrobatics and joyful dancing accompanied by live music. It’s the story of the people who are all too often seen but unheard.

Till We Win is captioned, BSL interpreted and audio described.

Digital and Live Performances

Instead of bringing Till We Win to Bournemouth Emerging Arts Festival (BEAF), Birghton Fringe and For/With/By (The European Youth Theatre Festival), we are releasing digital content around the show to look out for this Summer 2020.

We are hoping to perform to live audiences in the Summer 2021. Follow us on social media to be the first to see our digital work and for updates about our next live performances.
