Emerge is an on-going collaboration between Warwick Arts Centre, the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning (IATL) and the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies (nominated for The Stage 'School of the Year', 2016). At the inaugural 2014 Emerge Festival and Laboratory, graduate theatre companies (including Dumbshow, Fat Git, FellSwoop, Kill the Beast) and alumni artists participated in four days of events and experiments. In 2015, Emerge celebrated the university‚Äôs 50th anniversary through Warwick 2065: Performance and the University alongside touring work from graduate companies including FellSwoop, Barrel Organ and Walrus.
