Presented by Theatre Re

Following sell-out runs at the 2019 London International Mime Festival and Latitude, we are delighted to welcome Theatre Re back to Gulbenkian.

Birth is a powerful, poignant and uplifting visual theatre piece with live music exploring the bond between three generations of women, their shared loss, and the strength they discover in each other.

Emily is eight months pregnant when she reads her grandmother’s journal. As she delves into her family history her sense of reality shifts, unveiling a legacy of unspoken tragedies and unconditional love.

Established in 2009, Theatre Re is an internationally acclaimed ensemble creating thought provoking live performances. The company examines fragile human conditions in a compelling, physical style embracing mime, theatre and live music.

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.
