New Beginning comes to Queen’s Theatre

New Beginning is a one-of-a-kind immersive production that blends stunning projections, a newly composed score and soundscape, poetic text and natural materials to immerse audiences in the future of our planet.

Leading with its strikingly beautiful design, New Beginning brings to life the magic of the forest and what lies beneath in a theatrical setting. Narrative, sound and visuals become entangled with each other, creating one coherent thread that considers our relationship to nature. Spanning ancient history to futuristic imaginings of what our world could look like, New Beginning conjures a holistic, 360 degree installation that surrounds the audience and pulls them into a meditative state, encouraging them to reflect on nature and community.

The show will be made with over 100 young people, who will help to bring the production to life, guiding audiences through this constantly evolving, powerful experience. Built on through workshops in local schools; their voices, thoughts and feelings, about our natural world are weaved into the experience.

The show comes to the Queen’s Theatre in Hornchurch on 30th August to 2nd September.

Ros spoke to the shows director David Shearing.
