DAWN CHORUS is an exciting new international project from Pegasus Theatre. We are looking for nine Youth Theatre Companies from across the world to take part between 2019 and 2020.
Inspired by Oxford’s May Morning tradition, where the city greets the new season sun, this project will work with young people from across the world to ask, “In days as dark as these who will shine the light?” We will work with the young companies to present what a “new dawn” looks like to them and what message they have for the world.
Taking place in Oxford in May 2019 and April 2020, with groups working in their home countries in-between, DAWN CHORUS will work with 100 young people from 10 countries to give opportunity and agency to a generation of young people whose voice is often silenced. Pegasus Theatre will lead in the creation of a new, vibrant, multi-art form performance that will be performed in a picturesque Oxford location as the sun rises with all participants from across the world.
