Welcoming the Child, New Free Theatre, 16 – 23 December

We are pleased to welcome the New Free Theatre at St John on Bethnal Green.

In a contemporary take on the traditional nativity play, they are presenting an installation of audio and text in the Belfry during the week leading up to Christmas.

 

 

‘Welcoming the Child’ takes inspiration from Hugo Ball’s surrealist ‘Simultaneous Nativity Play’ in order to think through questions of textuality and performance in relation to the nativity play as a central although not-exactly-canonical feature of the landscape of western theatre.

Visitors are welcome daily at any time from 17.00 – 21.00 and also for matinee performances on Sundays from 11.00 – 13.00.
