China Plate & Staatstheater Mainz present

This event has been cancelled due to essential maintenance work in the Gulbenkian theatre auditorium, apologies for any inconvenience. If you have purchased a ticket, a member of the team will be in touch shortly. Alternatively please contact our ticket office directly on 01227 769075.

We all have a nationality. Or almost all of us. Status is a show about someone who doesn’t want his anymore. About running away from the national story you’re given. About who is responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you give it up.

Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, Warwick Arts Centre and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg.

A globe-spanning journey of attempted escape, with songs along the way. Status springs from conversations about who we might be, and whether your country needs you more than you might need it.

A new show from the multi Fringe First winning team that created Confirmation: written and performed by Chris Thorpe (Unlimited Theatre, Third Angel) developed with and directed by Rachel Chavkin (The TEAM, Hadestown).

Supported by the British Council, Goethe-Institut London, the Collaborative Touring Network and using public funding by the national lottery through Arts Council England.

Our work with young people

Children and Young People are at the heart of what we do, as audience members, as participants and as thought leaders.

Through our landmark ART31 project we are working with young people and partners in Kent to create new opportunities through the arts for under 25's across the county.

Below are some of our current projects focused on the development of young people.
