About the event

Guildhall PACE students present an eclectic online festival of brand-new performance, from immersive soundscapes to spoken word and rap theatre, experimental short films to interactive gameshows.

Guildhall School’s pioneering BA (Hons) Performance & Creative Enterprise 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 performance. From immersive soundscapes to slam poetry and from experimental short films to interactive gameshows, Chapters celebrates the plurality, politics and ferocious power of PACE.

As part of the festival on Wednesday 7 October, Paula Varjack hosts Real Talk with Travis Alabanza, the second in a series of conversations created in collaboration with PACE students.

Presented by Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
