Lyric Hammersmith Announces 2018 Evolution Festival
We are very excited to announce that we are bringing its Evolution Festival back for a third year!
Evolution showcases artists aged 16 – 25, celebrating the ground-breaking and exciting work being produced by young people in the capital. The four day multi-art form festival will run from Wednesday 14 – Saturday 17 March 2018.
This year the festival celebrates the importance of the individual and explores the idea of ‘Self’. The topics and related themes involve the discussion of identity, race, gender, health,
stereotypes and culture. The Evolution Festival creates a safe and creative space for artists to share their work, represents the diverse and multi-cultural talent in London and allows artists to connect with a wider audience.
The festival features several projects developed by the Lyric including Stains, a collaboration with Wimbledon College of Art; The Blind Truth previously a scratch performance in Evolution 2017; and The Room of Possibilities performed by Journeys, the Lyric’s integrated company of disabled and non-disabled performers.
The festival will also premiere the newly formed Lyric Ensemble’s work in progress, directed by international director Anne Louise Sarks, ahead of their summer show.
