Youthquake tour: New 360 degrees theatre experience heading to Lincoln

Part show, part TED Talk and part party

A new 360 degrees theatre experience will head to Lincoln as part of an extensive national tour giving a powerful insight into the hidden lives and minds of Teen Britain.

Zest Theatre’s Youthquake tour is part show, part TED Talk and part party and questions what it actually means to change the world.

The tour starts this Autumn and will head to Lincoln Drill Hall on Thursday and Friday, October 10-11. It is a Pay What You Decide Event – click here to book tickets.

Youthquake was developed through conversations with 800 young people from across the country. It uses their words and opinions to give voice to a generation often left unheard.

In 2017 the word Youthquake was announced as a significant cultural, political or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people.

The production is led by a professional cast and also incorporates a local ensemble of 20 young performers from each town to add local narrative to every location visited on the tour.

Becky is 30-years-old and wants to make a difference and empower the next generation to stand up and change the world. She’ll perform an inspirational presentation for the audience, but she’s “been talking so much that she’s not realised the Youthquake has already begun”.

The production will tour seven venues in 2019 and five across the North East in 2020. Youthquake has been commissioned by Tees Valley Combined Authority, The Civic Barnsley and Lincoln Drill Hall.
