Fail Better Student Ensemble

We are currently expanding for our ensemble by collaborating with students at The CAPITAL Centre.

For last year's ensemble, membership included collaboration with professional practitioners as well as participating in the following:

  • Federico Garcia Lorca's Play without a Title (world premiere production and Belgrade Theare transfer)
  • The Persephone Project (devised/new writing process and New Work Festival performances)
  • Shakespeare and the Brain (public event in Warwick Arts Centre)
  • Networking (applied theatre training event)
  • Nikolai Gogol's Diary of a Madman (production placements at the Edinburgh Festival)

This year will include interdisciplinary practice and performance work. This term, members of the ensemble are exploring the drama of Samuel Beckett and devising new work for the stage.
