    Chrysalis Festival

    After a period of ravenous consumption, a caterpillar finds its perch and forms a chrysalis.
    The dormant ‘imaginal cells’ begin creating new form and structure. They persist, they multiply and connect. They resonate at the same frequency and begin to act together.
    That is the new beginning. That is when a butterfly will be born.

    The first ever Chrysalis festival showcases ambitious and provocative work by emerging young talent from across the UK and features the following four productions:

    i'd rather humble than hero /Junction 25 (Glasgow)

    Headz / 20 Stories High (Liverpool)

    Southside Stories / Citizens Theatre Young Co. (Glasgow)

    Under The Covers / Contact Young Company (Manchester)

    The festival includes an accompanying programme of free panel discussions which aim to explore the position of youth theatre in a wider context.

    Chrysalis is also part of the Call to Create season, curated by the Roundhouse London. This season combines the new ideas, energy and talent of young people with the experience of established artists to inspire audiences around the world.  

    Access: Events on Sat 7 November will be British Sign Language Interpreted.
