Research and Development Spring 2019 | National Tour Autumn 2019 & Spring 2020

It’s not easy being young in Britain. But between the news stories and the negativity, there are the rumblings of something exciting and new.

This is Generation Z. They’re realistic, yet optimistic for the future. They’re authentic, transparent and allergic to bullshit. They’re a generation challenging the system that’s set against them whilst positively redefining their future. Their influence is changing the world. This is a Youthquake.

Youthquake will be another exciting 360° theatre experience from Zest. Inspired by the voices of young people from around the country and featuring a mix of professional and local young performers, each performance becomes a metaphor for the cultural shift a Youthquake brings.
