5 NOW Festival 2020 Must-See Experiences at The Yard Theatre

There’s so much to see in Hackney Wick‘s warehouse theatre.

The annual NOW Festival showcases double-bills of challenging, big ideas, daring audiences to try new things and experience new perspectives.

If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary to fill your winter with, it’s definitely worth the trip to The Yard Theatre.

Our NOW20 highlights include:

DANIEL OLIVER + FRAUKE REQUARDT: DADDERS | 21-25 JANUARY

Welcome to the Meadowdrome! Audience participation is optional: those of an adventurous disposition can expect “awkwardly intimate actions, strange dances, sweet and surreal songs”.

Double-bill with EIRINI KARTSAKI + TASOS STAMOU: IN A WAY SO BRUTAL.

JULIE CUNNINGHAM: FIRE BIRD | 28 JANUARY – 1 FEBRUARY

A queer dance interpretation of Stravinsky’s The Firebird, from Critics Circle National Dance Award winner Julie Cunningham.

JULIA CROFT AND NISHA MADHAN: WORKING ON MY NIGHT MOVES | 18-22 FEBRUARY

A search for multiple feminist futurisms, a reaching for outer space and a fever dream, all wrapped up with science fiction, quantum physics and dubstep… You probably have to be there!
