“Nobody ever got their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people oppressing them.”
TYPT puts emerging theatre makers together with established artists to develop their practice, test ideas and produce a brand new piece of theatre in just 4 weeks. The whole TYPT process is open to participants, from initial production meetings to script development sessions; from meetings with graphic designers to the get-out.
