Enjoy five short films, created in collaboration with the Roundhouse.

In a new collaboration between the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre and the Roundhouse, Evolution: Films premieres five short films in the Lyric Cinema, directed by abs sol with cinematography facilitation by Bani Mendy.

The project brings together the Lyric’s SPRINGBOARD trainees and young people from the Roundhouse’s Behind The Lens programme who will create modern day workings of classic dramas. Duologue extracts will be chosen by the students from Chekhov’s Three Sisters, Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, Sophocles’ Electra and/or Lorca’s Yerma.

The Roundhouse is a hub of inspiration where artists and emerging talent create extraordinary work and where young people can grow creatively as individuals. We believe in the power of creativity to change lives. By giving young people the chance to engage with the arts through our music, media and performance projects, we inspire them to reach further, dream bigger, and achieve more.

Admission is free however bookings are essential.
