Sry Nt Sry

 A satirical mockery of the world around us. This new work explored themes such as racism, rape culture, sexual education and wokeness. 

In Translation

 

An evening of adaptations and transformations. Inspired by popular films and contemporary novels, alongside classical theatrical forms, these stories find new life on the modern stage.

America Ad Infinitum

In March 2018, the UArts/ Pig Iron Class of 2019 traveled across America by train to encounter and observe the country as it is now - its landscapes and cities, its people and their stories. America Ad Infinitum is an original work crafted from the experiences of that journey, which explores themes of containment, fear, pride, and majesty.
