Our first season at Theatro Technis @ 26 Crowndale
- Bootycandy – Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu directs the UK Premiere of Robert O’Hara‘s subversive hit comedy
- HOT IN HERE – explore what action can be taken to save the planet in this energy-generating dance party
- Brassic FM – new gig theatre co-created by Zia Ahmed and Stef O’Driscoll
A season filled with award-winning and early career theatre makers showcasing world-class global stories, experimenting with form and structure, addressing some of the greatest inequalities the world is navigating right now.
This season encapsulates our commitment to ensuring the Gate continues to be a home for trailblazing international theatre and its makers for many years to come. #KeepTheGateOpen
Stef O’Driscoll, Interim Artistic Director said:
Our first season in Camden is full of stories which speak to values close to the hearts of our team and local community, from the UK premiere of Robert O’Hara’s outrageous and hard-hitting Bootycandy about growing up black and gay in 1970s’ America; to a co-pro with Pigfoot on HOT IN HERE featuring theatre’s first energy-harvesting dancefloor and derived from interviews with climate advocates across the world; and lastly Brassic FM, a collaboration with Zia Ahmed about work which connects deeply to our local multicultural working class community in Somers Town. The Gate has always been a place to nurture and challenge the next generation of artists to create ground-breaking theatre. Our first season at our new home at Theatro Technis @ 26 Crowndale is no exception. In true Gate style, no two visits to our shows will be the same. This season celebrates everything the Gate has come to stand for across its 43-year history, connecting global voices to local stories. We can’t wait to see you again this spring. Let’s come together again to think, imagine and play.
Shami Chakrabarti, incoming Chair of the Board said:
My thanks to everyone who nearly broke my inbox with anger at the politicised cut to our theatre. Please now come and break the box office for an exciting new season that will help us keep the Gate open for many great seasons, stories and artists to come.
Our new space in Camden is wheelchair accessible and step-free.
We are also able to offer audio-described, captioned, relaxed and BSL performances. (In fact, all shows for HOT IN HERE are creatively captioned and performed in a relaxed setting.)
