We look to the future with new shows, projects and partnership for 2018

On 23rd November at a special event to celebrate the re-opening of Barber Shop Chronicles at the National Theatre we announced some of the highlights of our 2018 Season.

As our director, Kate McGrath, said “Our 2018 season is about how we got here and where we’re going. There’s a sense from everyone we’re working with that we urgently need to understand where we’ve come from – individually and collectively – so that we can start to imagine and shape the future, at this moment in history. All the work we present in 2018 is preoccupied in different ways with this. There’s a feeling we’re on the brink of a future we don’t understand.

Highlights of the season include:

Racheal Ofori takes a fresh look at women’s sexuality through three generations of women in So Many Reasons, headlining Calm Down Dear festival at Camden People’s Theatre

A glimpse into women’s experience in prisons over 150 years in new sound installation, Lock Her Up, from artists including Rachel Mars and Commonwealth

Scrutinising changing ideas of black masculinity, Inua Ellams’ hit show Barber Shop Chronicles heads to Australia and New Zealand after its National Theatre return

Feminism in motion as Fuel announce Hemabharathy Palani as the 2018 Leverhulme Choreography Fellow in a new partnership with Rambert
