The Independent Culture

1. The Royal Shakespeare Company

The RSC comes to Latitude with a bold new commission, Revolt. She said. Revolt again, from Alice Birch and directed by Erica Whyman, hot from the Midsummer Mischief Festival in Stratford-upon-Avon.

2. Forced Entertainment

The Sheffield-based artists will blur the boundaries between radio play, graphic novel and live performance with a revival of Void Story, a bleak fable that takes spectators on a rollercoaster ride through the ruins of contemporary culture.

3. Fleabag

Phoebe Waller-Bridge's production won her the Critics Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright. It's a tale that is both funny and deeply disturbing, about a sex-addicted young woman's struggles to control her urges, and her deeper underlying psychological traumas.

 

4. National Youth Dance Company

Sadler's Wells, Latitude's partner for the seventh year running, presents work by two of its associate artists. The National Youth Dance Company will perform a restaged excerpt of Vertical Road by the company's artistic director Akram Khan and choreographer James Cousins.

5. The English National Ballet

Following the success of its 2012 Swan Lake, the ENB returns to Latitude with a double bill of new works, including Van Le Ngoc's Four Seasons and a new work by James Streeter titled In Living Memory... inspired by texts about the First World War.
