Collaborative & Innovative
FORWARD MARCH FESTIVAL:
SPARK THE FUTURE!
PRODUCED BY THEATRE DIRECT
A new work by Muna Youssouf and Lily Sutherland
Commissioned and Presented by Theatre Direct
This April, Theatre Direct presents Spark the Future!, the third annual Forward March Festival. Each day of the online festival will feature the premiere of a new work by emerging artists that sparks the future of performance and reminds kids ages 6-12 that the show must go on–even if it’s online!
In this new work, we explore multi-disciplinary, digital theatre work which combines original music, object puppetry, and film, specifically taking inspiration from the medium of stop-motion animation. As artists, we are curious to explore the concept of identity, especially within the context of a digital future, from a child’s perspective.
