AYT & Hackney Live present: Once it’s over the audience will cheer…

Written and devised by the Company

What is it that you expect to achieve by coming here today?

Audience members will join an unseen digital audience to interact with young performers and explore the boundaries of what is real and what is not, what is theatrical and what is not, and explore what matters and what doesn’t.

Arcola Youth Theatre is staging an ambitious interactive performance with a cast of over

45 young people. Once it’s over the audience will cheer… will explore the relationship between performer and audience, posing questions to the physical audience, plus those watching in two public screenings


The event will be streamed at hackneylive.co.uk with live viewing sites at Arcola Cafe Bar, Hoxton Hall and Forrest Road Youth Hub.and online.

Digital audiences will have the opportunity to affect the performance in surprising ways via Twitter hashtags and in the run up to the show social media will play a key part in inspiring our performance. Keep a look out for vine submission requests and regular questions on Twitter and Facebook these will play a key part in inspiring elements of the show during rehearsals.

Hackney Live is supported by Hackney Council and Arts Council England, and is part of Hackney Council’s Discover Young Hackney festival
