The Unicorn Theatre declares a Climate Emergency

At the Unicorn, we try to take responsibility for our choices – for the work on our stages, for our practices and processes, for our effect on the world.  So in recent years, we have worked hard to improve our organisational environmental sustainability. 
 
But in October 2018, the International Panel on Climate Change reported that we only have 12 years to change how we live, globally.  Extreme weather events are changing the world and destroying lives.
 
If all of us take fast and drastic action within our own sphere of influence, making changes in our behaviours, we can meet climate goals.  The need to take action is more urgent than ever and here at the Unicorn, we know we need to do more, faster.
 
The Unicorn joins many other arts and cultural organisations in declaring a Climate Emergency.  We want to commit a response to this global crisis across all areas of our work.
 
Here are our commitments.
 
In our own work, we will continue to take environmental action across our building and operations – through our recycling, reusing and repurposing, through our merchandise and café activities, through our productions, and through our choices of energy suppliers and product providers – and we will continue to imagine new and better ways to work.
 
In our stakeholder and external relationships, we will support our community, our governing bodies, our national and international partners to tackle the emergency, to advocate for change, to speak out for the climate emergency.
 
In our relationships with our audiences, we will listen to and engage with young people to try to respond to their knowledge, their questions, and their demands.
 
In the wider community, we will advocate for and celebrate democracy and social justice wherever we can across political parties, civic institutions, points of view, and communities large and small.

LAUNCHING PASS IT ON…AND ON…

“It’s vital to me that everyone can visit us regardless of financial circumstance. Young people have a right to experience great art of the same quality that we adults seek for ourselves.”

- Justin Audibert, Artistic Director

 
Justin Audibert’s first season at the Unicorn as Artistic Director includes an incredible mix of playwrights, artists and theatre companies. Justin is passionate about ensuring the work on our stages is experienced by the widest possible range of young people. Our building is a creative environment in which young people can be challenged, engaged and inspired and we want to share it with everyone.
 
We are deeply committed to ensuring that young people and their families feel welcome, and to making our theatre accessible to all. Thanks to generous funding from The McGrath Trust we subsidise thousands of school and community visits every year.
 
We have committed to maintaining our £10 tickets for state-funded schools for the eighth consecutive year, and offer as much support as possible to non-fee paying schools who might be unable to visit us for financial reasons. As brutal cuts are affecting creative learning opportunities in schools across the country, we know that this work is more important than ever. We also stretch beyond education to defend children’s right to a creative and fulfilling life and have recently launched REACH – a major new community programme which welcomes children from London's most deprived communities into the Unicorn to experience the joys of a live theatre experience. 
 
In order to reach more young people, we are launching PASS IT ON…AND ON… a new campaign that enables us to give more free tickets than ever before to those who need it most. The premise is simple but the impact will be massive.
 
In 2017 we launched our original PASS IT ON campaign enabling audiences to donate £10 so that another child could have the same great experience at the Unicorn as them. This has been hugely successful. But we asked ourselves if there was a way to make this better, to reach more people? We believe the answer is PASS IT ON…AND ON… our brand new campaign that gives everyone the opportunity to donate £10 per month. This will go straight to giving a child a ticket to the Unicorn. You can learn more about the campaign here.
 
We already do so much to ensure everyone can visit us and experience great theatre. But of course we want to do more and we are always being asked by audiences, friends and supporters how they can help, how they can do more too.  This is how, and now is the time.

"I believe in the power of words because they need no mediation": this National Poetry Day, We Talk To Tim Crouch about his play I, Cinna (the poet).

The poet, Cinna, hardly says a word in Shakespeare’s Julius Ceaser before he is mistaken for someone else and torn to pieces by an angry mob. He’s Shakespeare’s unluckiest character. For National Poetry Day, we spoke to writer and performer, Tim Crouch about his show, I, Cinna (the poet), which plays at the Unicorn in February 2020, and asked what he thought the role of poetry is in young people’s world today. 
 
I, Cinna (the poet) is set to come to the Unicorn 5 Feb 2020.
Originally written for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2012, and with a filmed version live-streamed to secondary schools across the UK, I, Cinna (the poet) tells the story of Cinna, who, after only 17 lines, is mistaken for another Cinna (Cinna the conspirator) and killed. This is the fifth of a series of plays written by Tim, which re-writes the narrative of Shakespeare’s minor characters. But why does Tim believe these stories need to be told?
 
“It’s good to change the angle at which we look at the world. It helps us to discover new things. History is written about the leaders, but it’s made by all of us - big and small. It’s good to get the small person’s perspective on the big stories. The powerful can look after themselves. They don’t need our help.
 
“Young people are often perceived as ‘minor characters’ in the world. But their voice is just as important as anyone else's.
 
“Dear old Cinna the poet. One short scene - and then he’s killed.  Killed for being in the wrong place at the wrong time - and with the wrong name. If anyone needs their story expanding, it’s Cinna. It barely starts before it’s finished. In the 21st century, there’d be a campaign for Justice for Cinna! His killers would be found and prosecuted. In a way, I’m doing this for him through writing about him.”
 
The fact that Shakespeare appointed Cinna’s unfortunate fate to a poet is, for Tim, not a detail to be disregarded:
 
“In Julius Caesar, Cinna-the-poet’s fate helps us to understand the impact of political events on ordinary people. Cinna is caught up in the public disorder and he is killed by the mob. He could have been any ordinary citizen  - Shakespeare mentions cobblers and carpenters in his play, for example - but Shakespeare chooses to make Cinna a poet. It’s a poet, an artist, who is killed as a consequence of the public unrest. By this simple act of making Cinna a poet, Shakespeare invites us to consider the role of the artist in society. Later in Julius Caesar, another poet appears and argues with Brutus for peace. The question Shakespeare gives Brutus about this second poet is ‘What should the wars do with these jigging fools?’
 
“I take this question as a starting point for my play - what’s the point of art during major political upheaval? My Cinna says, ‘What use is poetry when the tanks are in the streets?'
 
 Tim Crouch believes we need to hold on to poetry's power 'in the face of digital media and screens'.
 
Not only is Cinna a poet himself, but the audience too becomes poets during the show, as they are given paper and pen and encouraged to participate in creating a mass-database of poetry, inspired by Cinna’s story. With this year’s National Poetry Day theme being ‘Truth’, and as slogans and protest increasingly becomes the backdrop for young people’s lives, what does Tim think about the role of poetry today?
 
“Poetry can get to the heart of where we are and how we feel. It helps us feel the mystery of being alive… We need to hold on to its power - in the face of digital media and screens.  I believe in the power of words because they need no mediation. In I, Cinna (the poet), Cinna says: 'There is nothing that cannot be done or undone with words. Pictures are helpful, but words don't need a camera. Words are also pictures. They can change the world.’
 
“I’m struck by the power of words in the language of protest - the banners that we see during rallies, particularly climate protest.  These protesters are using words in the same way that poets do - finding an economy and power to deal with complex ideas. They are all poets.”
 
I, Cinna (the poet) opens at the Unicorn on 5 February for ages 11 – 14.  What is exciting Tim about the show?
 
“The relationship between the performer and the audience in I, Cinna (the poet) will be a mix of story-teller, writer and good teacher - I hope! I’m very excited to see the writing that is done during the show. We all work together in this show and it feels very fresh and alive. Each performance will be different, each performance will produce something!”

OUR NEW SEASON THEMED 'THE FUTURE' OPENS WITH 15 MINUTES LIVE

It's the launch of our new future-themed season this Sunday and, this time, we wanted to open with something a little bit different... 
We've teamed up with Leeds-based, theatre mavericks, Slung Low, to create 15 Minutes Live; a one-off radio play-style show responding to the theme of ‘The Future’performed with onstage sound effects, live music and audience interaction. In anticipation of this riotous event, where six writers have created six short plays, we spoke to Slung Low’s Alan Lane as well as some of the writers, to ask them what the future looks like to them, about the role of theatre and what it means to be opening our season with a bang! 
 
Specialising in making work in unusual spaces, Alan has directed work with Slung Low for the Almeida Theatrethe Barbican and many moreHere’s what he thinks about the future: “The thing that always interests me about the future are the things that we imagine to be the same. We might be talking about a family going to the moon but the family remains the same. There are certain things- about how you talk to your mum or how you feel about school that stay the same even as the future brings in changes. And also the things we think might disappear in the future- the changes we imagine: whether there’ll be theatre in the future, whether we’ll still go to school or just FaceTime!”
 
Eve Nicol, whose play, 'The Brownie Handbook'is one-of-six plays in 15 Minutes Live, says: It’s great to see young people leading the way in big issues of our day, particularly in environmental campaigning. But is “the kids are alright” attitude just dumping all the responsibility on the upcoming generation? When writing my piece for 15 Minutes Live I thought about what worries me now and what will worry my baby niece when she grows up. What’s the same? What’s different? What will give us both hope and strength to enjoy life together?
 
For Ken Emson, who has written 'The End', says that theatre has a key role in this: “At the moment the future feels pretty bleak! So I think it's important that theatre tries to bring a bit of joy to audiences. That doesn't mean ignore the world we live in, but at least give an audience a few lines to laugh at! To quote Whitney 'the children are our future'. So writing for the Unicorn, a building with young people at its heart, is pretty important in terms of communicating with them.”

15 Minutes Live is a Pay What You Decide event which, for Alan, is an initiative echoed in all of his work at Slung Low: “Pay What You Decide is a central part of how we do everything as a company; our shows, our college classes, lending our equipment and van - everything. It’s got two important roles. The first is to allow people to explore a role that isn’t a customer - we’re constantly turned into customers nowadays and it’s a belittling role. We are citizens. And that is powerful. And Pay What You Decide is a small part of allowing people to feel like powerful citizens. And secondly, it allows people who don’t already know that theatre is exciting and brilliant to try it out with less risk- theatre feels like a lot of money if you aren’t sure.”
 
For Nina Segal, writer of 'Archaeology',  no one is tackling accessibility in theatre quite like Slung Low: “Every time I read about what they’re up to, I just think – yes!  That’s what we should be doing!  I feel very strongly that theatre buildings should be interrogating the role they play in their community as much as possible – especially if they’re publicly-funded.  It’s not just the work on the important stages – it’s the work of the whole organisation and the ways that work takes place.  I would love for theatre buildings to be thought of more as public space – as a community resource.  If a building puts on a show at 7.30pm each evening but is closed to the public the rest of the time – what else could that space be used for?  If it’s open to the public but requires an expensive purchase at a café or bar to access it – can that really be thought of as public space?
 
15 Minutes Live has been running for many years in Leeds, above Britain’s oldest working men’s club, but what is it about these radio play-style shows that makes it so popular? Alan: People enjoy the element of watching us make it- the sound effects, the actors with their scripts, it opens up the magic of theatre-making to people and folk seem to enjoy that. And that there are 6 short plays means that there’s always something different and exciting around the corner. They’re all over so quick! And of course, the audience live at the show are parts of the recorded audience’s experience. They can actually hear that audience watching them!
 
And what is it like for Laurence Dobiesz and Olivia Poulet, who together wrote 'Nuclear Family',  to write in such a way? “The first script that we wrote together which was produced was a radio play (called #blessed). It’s the most enjoyable, freeing medium to write for. You can let your imagination fly, unrestricted by budget or cast numbers. It can also be the most intimate, so there’s scope for everything. And having it performed in front of a live audience will give it a whole new dimension that we can’t anticipate. We can’t wait to hear how the company - and the audience - bring it to life!”
 
Nina can’t wait to see what the show has in-store: “I’m really excited to see the other writers’ work – to see how they responded to the same provocations and to see what version of the future they’re exploring.  And I’m excited, as always, to spend time at the Unicorn – I’ve always felt it’s where the most exciting work in this city is happening and I’m very happy to be a small part of it.”
 
Alan: “A fun afternoon with a band, radio plays recorded in front of you, fun and food. What more could you want!”
 
It seems that whatever the reason for 15 Minutes Live's scorching reputation in Leeds, it’s certainly set to be just as big a success at the Unicorn Theatre.

BEHIND THE FABLES WITH OUR AESOP’S FABLES WRITERS

Chris Goode, Naomi Iizuka, Kaite O'Reilly, Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig and Chris Thorpe speak to the Unicorn to tell us the thinking behind their adaptations of these classic fables.
Guy Rhys as 'Dog' in Kaite O'Reilly's Dog and Wolf - Aesop's Fables
 
With Aesop’s Fables’ final shows just a few days away, it can feel strange to try and imagine them at their first stages of writing.  Co-directors Justin Audibert and Rachel Bagshaw’s two plays (one for ages 4 – 7 and another for ages 8 – 12) are made up of eight ancient fables, re-written for a contemporary audience by some of our favourite writers. In celebration of the shows’ close, we spoke to some of these writers to see what made them choose their classic fable for adaptation, and what they think the role of morals and storytelling has in a modern world.
 
Naomi Iizuka’s Two Goats has, on the surface, a simple lesson – campaigning for the misfortune that comes through stubbornness, but in Iizuka’s version of the fable the goats are transformed into divorcees, leaving their child, Billy, at the centre of their impending demise:
 
“I was drawn to the fable of ‘The Two Goats’ because of the ending. I'm fascinated by whatever that impulse is in human nature that needs so badly to be right, that needs to win at all costs. The characters in this fable will do anything to be right. They will do anything to win, even if it means destroying themselves. I wanted to try to understand what that impulse was. I think that self-destructive, ego-driven aspect of human nature is at the core of so many conflicts, whether it's a conflict between two countries at war or two parents fighting over custody of their child.”
 
And where does Naomi think the act of storytelling sit today? - “I think storytelling is so important in the times we live in now. Stories have this uncanny ability to make you see yourself and those around you with new eyes. They compel you to look at the world around you in unexpected ways. At their best, stories foster a capacity for empathy with points of view and experiences very different from your own. I think that's vital in our world right now where we are, in so many ways, so divided and polarized as a culture.”
 
Writer of productions such as YARD (The Bush, London), and Perfect (Contact Theatre), Kaite O’Reilly adapted ‘The Dog and the Wolf’, but the 'teaching' of her story, (better to be hungry and free than fat and a slave), is one that, to Kaite, is not a moral at all:
 
“There's no moral - it's a teaching. Moral suggests there is a right and wrong and being moralistic... The short play looks at issues of self-ownership and settles on a preference by one character - it is political rather than moralistic. I abhor moralising. I think it's better to engage through raising curiosity or empathy rather than through the flawed binary of right or wrong.
 
 Storytelling is essential. Neuroscientists and neuropsychologists tell us we are hard-wired for story - it's essential to our growth, our independence and our development of compassion and empathy. Sadly so many things in our contemporary lives inhibit the use of the imagination and so engaging storytelling reminds us what it is to be human, and that we are not alone.”
 
 
Guy Rhys, Jessica Hayles, Rosie Wyatt and Shazia Nicholls in The Wolf and the Shepherd - Aesop's Fables
Originally hailing from Manchester, Chris Thorpe has written plays such as There Has Possibly Been an Incident, (Royal Exchange) and Confirmation (Fringe First Winner 2014). Thorpe told us he chose his fable, ‘The Boy and the Filberts’, because of its obscurity:
 
“I’d never seen it before. It’s really short, just a few sentences, and easy to miss because it’s not one of the well-known ones. I guess I liked that about it, that it was small and overlooked.
 
 “The moral in the original fable is very simple - about not over-reaching through greed. But I’m more interested in why we tell these moral fables and who we use to be examples of these moral ‘failings’”.
 
Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig is an internationally produced playwright whose work has been staged at the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Her adaptation of ‘The Pitcher and the Crow’, Frankie and the Crow, does not teach the importance of intelligence but, instead, of friendship:
 
“My adaptation is about an albino crow with body shame and his interspecies friendship with a young girl with body shame. The moral of the adaptation is that a good friend will not shame you for how you are in your body, and will instead appreciate and accept you as you are. I would argue that much of global capitalism is built upon people profiting by making others feel as if they are not enough, that their bodies are not correct, that they must change/self-colonize in order to assimilate. All of advertising is based on trying to create artificial needs and desires so that we spend our lives trying to fill holes that were not there until someone suggested they were.”
 
To Frances, the power in a story is invaluable: “I think everything that exists in the human made world began as an idea or a story, and that in order to change our world we need to change the stories we tell ourselves.” 
 
Writer of Monkey Bars (Unicorn) and Jubilee (Royal Exchange / Lyric, Hammersmith); Chris Goode’s adaptation of ‘The Wolf and the Shepherd’ is set in a rehearsal room, his character ‘Wolf’ eventually breaking the third-wall to invite the audience to howl along with him: “I really wanted to adapt a fable that was about an encounter between the human and animal worlds - the mystery of what animals see when they look at us. Who do they think we are? I think it's a bit like when audiences look at actors.
 
“I'm super interested in theatre as a place where we talk about morality, but I hate the 'morals' in Aesop's Fables. They're often really harsh. I want our thinking about morality - especially in theatre - to make us more liberated, more humane.
 
“Storytelling has always been how we make sense of a chaotic world, and how we imagine something better. The important things right now are: whose stories get told, and what forms do they take?”
 
Aesop’s Fables ends this Sunday 4 August, with our new season starting Sun 8 September.

Justin Audibert announces his first season as Artistic Director of the Unicorn

Justin Audibert, the Unicorn Theatre’s new Artistic Director, announces his first season at the London venue. An audacious opening season themed around thinking about our future – the world as it is or the world as we might imagine it to be – will address concerns which affect our lives and ultimately our civilisation, with theatrical intelligence, wit and flair.

On announcing his season, Justin Audibert said:

‘In my first year at the helm of the Unicorn, I want us to engage in an open and honest dialogue with our audience. Onstage, the offer comprises 12 productions for everyone from 6 months and upwards. The overarching theme of the season interrogates how the world is and challenges the audience to imagine how it might be different.

To do this we have assembled an inspiring roster of artists, encompassing Unicorn favourites whilst introducing exciting new voices such as Jesse Jones, Rachel Bagshaw, Naomi Wirthner and Lulu Raczka. We are also delighted to be co-producing with some of the most innovative companies working nationally with Slung Low, New Perspectives and How It Ended, as well as welcoming the newly recognised Theatre of Sanctuary, Phosphoros Theatre, into the building as our first Associate Company. Lastly, we are very excited to announce that our co-production with Untitled Projects, The End of Eddy, is transferring internationally, and signifies our continued ambitions for the future of our touring work

In recent months, young people have left their schools to protest, to have their voices heard, to let us know how we’ve failed them. This year, we will be speaking directly to our young audiences – about the Climate Emergency, about their access to the arts and about how we can serve them better. It’s absolutely vital for the Unicorn to defend children’s right to a creative and fulfilling life. So in response to the brutal cuts being imposed on schools, we are maintaining our £10 tickets for the non-fee paying sector for the eighth consecutive year, subsidising more school trips than ever before, and launching a major new community programme – REACH – that will work creatively with some of the hardest to reach children in our society.’

The season celebrates brilliance, originality and spirit as the Unicorn continues to work with artists who push the boundaries of theatrical form – and at its heart is a commitment to inspiring a generation of theatregoers. Twelve productions will comprise an eclectic and potent mix of extraordinary and irreverent visions alongside a programme of events and workshops.

Opening the season with a one-off family event is a co-production with maverick theatre-makers Slung Low, 15 Minutes Live, a bold experiment with seven writers making six new radio plays about the future; for Black History Month and drawn from African-Caribbean folklore, Justin creates and directs a show about the ultimate mischief-maker, Anansi the Spider; and returning to the Unicorn, writer Jemma Kennedy adapts the world premiere of Maggot Moon, Sally Gardner’s dystopian drama, in a major staging by Jesse Jones of this award-winning novel.

For Christmas, once again the Unicorn opens all three spaces for the festive season. In the Weston Theatre, Anthony Weigh’s dazzling new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost is brought to thrilling theatrical life for all the family with live magic and special effects. Alongside side this in the Clore Theatre is The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse – a co-production with New Perspectives based on the cult picture-book by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen. In the Foyle Studio, we see the return of Scrunch by Sarah Argent and Kevin Lewis – a show for the very youngest audiences.

Highlights also include work from Rachel Bagshaw, who joins the company as an Associate Director, directing Germany’s Roland Schimmelpfennig’s surreal and poetic The Bee in Me; and following his acclaimed work at the venue, Tim Crouch returns with the London premiere of his one-man show I, Cinna (the poet). Rising star Lulu Raczka reframes arguably the greatest satire of all time, Gulliver’s Travels, in an exhilarating exploration by director and filmmaker, Sam Yates.

The Unicorn is also delighted to announce that Phosphoros Theatre are to become the Unicorn’s first ever Associate Company. Phosphoros Theatre was founded in 2015 and every one of its actors came to the UK as Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children and Refugees. In residence at the Unicorn, the partnership is the start of a major new Unicorn programme with some of London’s hardest to reach and most vulnerable communities. The Phosphoros Young Company at the Unicorn will offer unaccompanied girls and boys, aged 14-18, the chance to use drama to help navigate their place in a new community, and to learn from older peers from the refugee community who were once in their shoes.

The Unicorn Theatre will also be taking even more work out of the building with projects in Great Ormond Street Hospital and beyond, as part of the Unicorn’s strategy to reach audiences who wouldn’t otherwise be able to experience our shows at the venue.

Further afield, The End of Eddy (shortlisted for two Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland awards) transfers to BAM in New York in November 2019 and will announce further international dates soon.

Under Audibert’s artistic leadership, the Unicorn will continue to position itself as one of the country’s most enquiring venues for young audiences, creating constantly surprising and provocative theatre, but also asking questions about the world we live in. As part of this discussion with its audiences, and in particular its response to the Climate Emergency, the Unicorn will be speaking directly to young people - the strongest and most urgent voices today - about the global climate crisis. Throughout the year, the theatre will engage in critical conversations online, in person and through forum and debate.
