GOLKK Theatre at the Gulbenkian

GOLKK Theatre, one of the Graduate Theatre Companies sponsored by the School of Arts, will be presenting their work ‘rest[less]’ in the Gulbenkian Theatre on Wednesday 15 May 2019.

‘rest[less]’ explores the topic of over-working and the phenomenon of burnout through the lens of beehives using GOLKK’s unique movement language. The piece premiered as a work-in-progress at The Place, London, earlier this year.

The performance will include a curtain-raiser from students from Herne Bay High School, developed as part of nine-week project where GOLKK worked with a Year 9 Drama class, giving students experience of physical theatre and ensemble work. The curtain-raiser will explore the theme of stress, and incorporate playful devising with poignant discussions surrounding school-related stress and how to cope.

GOLKK have also facilitated workshops with Girls’ Dance Company, an after-school programme for female students at Herne Bay High School.

Tickets for the performance cost £5/£10. To book, please see the page here:
