NEXT THING

EXETER PHOENIX | TYPify FESTIVAL |  ★★★★

6TH & 7TH MAY | Exeter Phoenix

6TH-8TH JULY 2018| TYPify Festival 

Written by Lucy Hirst & Katherine Stevens

Directed by Lucy Hirst 

Assisted by Katherine Stevens

Produced by Anna Blackburn& Katherine Stevens

In September 2018, TYP set to work on their most ambitious piece of work to date. Inspired by Yuval Noah Harari's Homo Deus, a strong cast of 20 produced a 'thoughtful, physical and future-busting' (PRSD) response to Harari's historical predictions by bravely tackling the realities of the present.

Playing themselves on stage, this impressive cast, recently labelled 'The New Silent Generation' exposed their greatest fears, their hopes, their dreams and the harsh realities of growing up as a Generation Zedder. 

 

The  ★★★★ production blew audiences away at the Phoenix before returning to headline the festival in July. 

Thank you to the great many of you who wrote feedback for us after the performances, we treasure your words and we're delighted to be making work that resonates inter-generationally. 

"There's enough power – physical and emotional – to kick start any movement" – PRSD, 2018.
