National Theatre Connections 2022
April 30 @ 3:00 pm - May 2 @ 9:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 3:00 pm, repeating until May 1, 2022
Connections is the National Theatre‘s annual, nationwide youth theatre festival, a unique celebration of young people, theatre-making and the importance of access to the arts.
Each year, the National Theatre commissions ten new plays for young people to perform, bringing together some of the most exciting writers with the theatre-makers of tomorrow. All Connections commissions are developed with input from young people.
With local festivals taking place in leading venues across the country, Connections is an unforgettable feast of theatre made by and for young people. The North Wall is delighted to once more be a partner theatre to this exciting festival.
This year, eight companies from Oxfordshire and beyond take part, with plays including The Ramayana Reset by Ayeesha Menon, with choreography by Hofesh Shechter, ‘dance’s most explosive choreographer’ (The Guardian), Superglue by Tim Crouch and Variations by Katie Hims.
