Presented by PICA and WAYTCo for FRINGE WORLD Festival 2018
yourseven | Your life in seven photo booths
01-17 February 2018
Based on Jaques' famous speech from 'As You Like It', this playful encounter asks you to consider your life journey through Shakespeare's seven ages of man. What has your life been like so far and what is yet to come?
Featuring a talented cast if bright young theatre makers and performers from WAYTCo, this work offers a refreshing perspective post Snapschat and Instagram to explore the private drama of you.
Created by James Berlyn, the co-founder of Proximity Festival, this work takes you on a journey through seven one-on-one encounters to recreate and predict your own life, compiling a bespoke album of Polaroid photos along the way.
With Shakespeare and forgotten technology as your guides, yourseven is a touching and intimate flash-forward journey all about you.
