NSCD students cast in The Rebellion and Delirium - NSCD


Monday 17th February 2020, 12:30pm

NSCD second-year students have been cast in Rita Marcalo's The Rebellion, touring throughout 2020, and Delirium by immersive Leeds-based theatre company Riptide.

The Rebellion Activity Day: On Tour

Touring the UK and Ireland throughout Spring and Summer 2020, The Rebellion Activity Day is an Arts Council-funded project directed by Rita Marcalo, NSCD lecturer and artistic director of Instant Dissidence. The Rebellion was originally staged at Flock Fest, NSCD’s student-curated pop-up performance festival, and the ‘eco tour’ will include a cast of 10 current students on NSCD’s BA (Hons) course.

This is a time-travel event: your future children travel from the year 2030 to deliver an urgent message.

The packed activity day will include a practical workshop focused on devising activist choreography and a restaging of Rita’s original work The Rebellion. There will also be an Imagination Café inviting audiences to picture a sustainable future, the results of which will be returned to the community in a creative format.

Catch it on the following dates:

12 Feb – York St John University
19 Feb – Loughborough University
2 April – Irish World Academy, Limerick
1 May – Yorkshire Dance, Leeds as part of Leeds International Festival

Riptide: Delirium

Riptide, an immersive Leeds-based theatre company, have cast NSCD BA2 students in their latest ‘site-sympathetic’ performance. Delirium has been commissioned by Leeds International Festival and will be choreographed by NSCD lecturer Fernanda Prata.

Step into a world where nothing is as it seems. Amidst the intoxication of euphoria and rapture, there are shadows and mischief at work. There is blood on the moon and whispers upon the wind. Trust no one. Believe nothing. Choose your path wisely…

Delirium is an immersive experience set within a hedonistic nightclub, and takes inspiration from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to deliver an immersive theatre and interactive game experience.

Experience it from Thursday 30 April – Friday 8 May in secret locations across Leeds.

Delirium has been commissioned by Leeds International Festival, and made in partnership with Northern School of Contemporary Dance and The University of Leeds with funding and support from Arts Council England.
