DARE Festival | 25-27 October 2018

Now in its third year, DARE is a festival of new and in-development theatre and performance at Shoreditch Town Hall. This year’s festival explores the theme of ‘power’ through performance, installation and conversation between artists and audiences. The three-day festival is peppered with performances, informal discussion events, and opportunities to network. The festival culminates in a party on Saturday night in the Ditch bar.

About Upstart Theatre

We believe that theatre is a tool to kick-start conversations about the world we live in. Inspired by the shared origins of theatre and democracy, we bring people together to take part in acts of shared storytelling, where the world onstage offers us new ways of thinking about the world off it. The relationship between theatre, politics and dialogue is at the heart of what we do.
