Residencies announced!

Blue Elephant Theatre is delighted to announce that it has awarded its two residencies to Found in Translation Theatre Company and CEMENT.

CEMENT Theatre, comprised of Evie Jones and David Bolwell who studied together at the University of York, are developing a one woman show blending spoken word, monologue and music. This autobiographical piece, also called CEMENT, explores what friendship means and is being developed with a teenaged audience in mind.

Found in Translation, who previously produced Cassandra at the Blue Elephant in 2018, are developing a script co-written by Lyna Dubary and Lou Stassen for the company. Found in Translation aim to make modern theatre with adaptation and inspiration from the past and “I Wanted to Ask” looks at uncovering female experiences from the past.

The residencies will take place in January and February, with R&D space, a small bursary and the opportunity to showcase the work provided.

Presented by Found in Translation Theatre Company

Tuesday 12 June 2018 - Saturday 16 June 2018

Based on Aeschylus’ Agamemnon, Cassandra takes us on a very personal journey through some of the struggles many women face in their lives; the choice between what’s expected of them and how they feel. Touching on the themes of #metoo and #timesup, Cassandra is an exploration of giving a voiceless woman an audience.

Established in October 2016, Found in Translation’s mission is to take Classical stories and update them for today’s audiences. They produce work that promotes education in the arts and Classical subjects to those that don’t have easy access.

Suitable for ages 16+
