E15 students in Engram at the Clifftown Theatre

Our Third year BA Physical Theatre students have worked with Ailin Conant, Artistic Director of Theatre Témoin, to merge film, animation and original music with silk and rope aerial performance and stunning movement theatre to create Engram.

Engram is an explosive story about one person’s quest to fix a broken childhood, and their struggle to conquer a dark landscape of memories, dreams, and ultimately, reality. This will be a visual treat not to be missed.
