Taking the Stage 2022 - New Voices
Haste – What Happens Next
Young people from across Milton Keynes share newly devised pieces of theatre Students from MK College, working with Haste Theatre Company present a new piece of work that will explore how young people see the future that lies before them and the world they live in.
Haste Theatre was founded in 2013 after meeting on an MA in Physical Theatre. A unified force of 4 women, we make new and devised work that sits in the uncomfortable place between laughter and tears, creating fantastical worlds to portray the everyday. We are multilingual actors, clowns, dancers, puppeteers, singers and creators, who share a passion for simple yet innovative storytelling. We have created 6 new shows, toured across the UK, Italy, Czech Republic and USA winning multiple awards and critical acclaim. During the pandemic, we received funding to make an online show for kids about the first woman in space which we are now making into a live show, as well as working on our 7th company show which will be toured nationally and internationally from late 2022. Haste have a strong creative learning programme, specialising in playfulness, devising and physical theatre adapted to suit a range from 4 year olds to professional creatives, as well as a Playfulness & Dementia series for TIBBS Dementia Foundation.
