present : tense / three

The return of the toughest creative challenge in town...

present : tense / three
Trafalgar Studios // Sunday 8 October 2006 // 8pm
Tickets £10 // Box Office: 0870 060 6632

Following two thrilling and totally sold-out previous outings, present : tense is back in a new home in the West End with another stellar line-up of top artistic talent taking up the gauntlet.

present : tense challenges some of the UK’s most exciting young artists to respond to the most important news story of the moment in just seven days. A group of playwrights, directors, film makers, poets and musicians convene on Sunday 1 October to scour the newspapers for the most significant story on the news agenda. They each have seven days to create a piece of work that responds to the topic they choose. As the news changes, they will be forced to adapt their work, until it is performed for the public exactly one week after they began on Sunday 8 October at Trafalgar Studios.

Throughout the week, you can follow their progress on this blog, where each artist will post daily updates.

present : tense aims to be backlash theatre at its most responsive, offering artists the chance to have their say on the most important issue of the day.
