Guildhall School’s pioneering BA (Hons) Performance & Creative Enterprise (PACE) programme was established in 2015 as a joint initiative between Guildhall and the Barbican with the aim of training visionary, socially engaged, multi-disciplinary, autonomous artists.
This October, the graduating class of 2020 present an eclectic online festival of brand-new performances, now available to watch again on Guildhall School’s website for free.
From immersive soundscapes to spoken word and rap theatre, and from experimental short films to stand-up comedy, Chapters celebrates the plurality, politics and ferocious power of PACE.
Each Chapters session features a Q&A with the artist led by Gilly Roche, Head of Interdisciplinary Practice and Programme Leader for PACE at Guildhall.
The festival performances and introductions are captioned, and the post-performance Q&As are BSL interpreted.
Chapters festival age guidance: 16+. These student-devised performances contain strong language and adult themes and content, as detailed below.
