“We are delighted and excited to be back at Pegasus to work with a new generation of theatre makers in the very place where our first production had its home. Every Complicité show is a journey: a process of experimentation led by curiosity. We’re excited to be embarking on this latest journey with the new generation of theatre makers emerging at Pegasus. We hope we can support their development as curious, hungry and skilled devised theatre makers and look forward to seeing where they take us.”
Natalie Raaum, Complicité Creative Learning Producer
Young Company 16-25 previous productions:
Still We Rise
Fall down seven times, stand up eight – Japanese proverb
Stories of the phenomenal women in our lives who battle against the odds to be themselves and who inspire strength in all of us.
Pegasus Young Company are working in partnership with young people from Oxford’s twin cities to create a new piece of theatre inspired by stories, poetry and song from around the world about what it takes to face your fears and stand up for your rights. It is a tribute to the fearless people everywhere who face injustice and fight back.
Using Maya Angelou’s poem Still I Rise as a starting point for inspiration, as well as stories of Suffrage, the piece will explore democratic rights of women in different cultures.
28 & 29 March 2018 7:30 pm
Set in a near-future dystopian Oxford where the answer to everyone’s problem is ‘Solution 150’. This new production is the culmination of the last years work with our Young Company.
16-25 Young Company is led by Corinne Micallef, Artistic Director/Joint CEO of Pegasus. Over the past year they have been working inspired by the Pegasus Youth Board’s theme for the year: Carnival of resistance: Art in times of unrest.
