A project to remember

Project 1568 is a bold project to create theatre for new audiences and participants in the Armistice Centenary year.  Our work will develop a theatrical presentation based on carefully identified literature and delivered through transnational creative collaboration. The project draws on three years of cultural exchange and exploration, working towards a European reflection on the events of WW1, the contexts, and responses of the times and subsequent reflections.

“Drama is made serious … not by the degree in which it is taken up with problems that are serious in themselves, but by the degree in which it gives the nourishment, not easy to define, on which our imaginations live” – JM Synge*
