UoE Launch Festival (Studio Performances)

Posted on behalf of Department of Literature, Film and Theatre Studies

Welcome to the University of Essex Launch Festival 2018!

The Launch Festival is brand new for this year and is made up of numerous performances, displays, readings and much more!

Students have been working on their projects for many months now as these are assessed pieces of work all leading up to these few days!

Please be aware that for ALL performances, there is a strict no latecomer policy.

On the Wednesday, the studio performances are -

11:15 - Lakeside Theatre Studio - Catherine Garton

12:15 - Lakeside Theatre Studio - Victoria Crow

13:15 - Lakeside Theatre Studio - Ryan Cogman - 'Japanese Rakugo'

Japanese Rakugo is a 400 year old traditional of comical storytelling. Through the typical Japanese sense of minimalism, the rakugo storyteller invites their audience into an immersive world of humour and fun with only a Japanese paper folding fan, a hand-towel, subtle gestures and change of voice at their disposal.

Brought to you by a passionate Essex Drama Student, Ryan Cogman will be performing one contemporary and one traditional rakugo story after talking about his experience in Japan in a rakugo style.
