Act II’s Amy Tickner and Gabriele talk about Neverland
This week we were joined by Amy Tickner and Gabriele Osella from Act II Festival, who are just about to hit Camden Fringe with their new show Neverland.
We met Amy and Gabriele earlier this year for the Act II Festival that played at The Space, a collection of 12 short plays created by young artists, all under the guidance of the organisers.
Neverland sees Amy and Gabriele continue the success of the festival by inviting a group of young creatives to devise a play for this year’s Camden Fringe, all from an initial idea of a play about a music festival.
We chat about the show and how it is all coming together, plus we look back at the Act II Festival from April and find out about where some of the shorts featured have gone on to already.
Neverland will play at Lion and Unicorn Theatre from 2 – 5 August – further information and tickets available here.
Lion and Unicorn Theatre
2 – 5 August
The piece will be devised over a two-week rehearsal process by a group of emerging young performers ages 18-26. NEVERLAND will explore themes of “growing up”, our “inner child”, “escapism”, and “running away” through poetry, live music, movement, and dialogue. What NEVERLAND becomes will be completely dictated by the emerging theatre-makers that ACT II works with.
Set at a festival, with a tent and a live DJ on stage, NEVERLAND promises to be the fringe show of the summer.
Tickets available here.
