About the Show/Event
Information for Hourglass/Compass/Drift - Mayflower 400 at Mayflower Theatre, Southampton (Performance). To commemorate the Mayflower ship leaving Southampton for the New World 400 years ago, Mayflower Theatre have commissioned and created two new musicals and a dance production. The three shows combine historical fact with ingenious story telling on the themes of migration, hope, friendship and the power of people and will premiere on our stage in August 2020. Hourglass is a brand new musical extravaganza, combining historical fact with fantastical fiction (by way of Jules Verne and Lewis Carroll), filled with mystery and humour, that celebrates the power of courage and hope. The musical will incorporate a company of both professional and community performers. Compass is a contemporary uplifting coming-of-age story filled with trepidation, friendship and hope following the journey of Liya, a young adult with a passion for aviation. Performed by Mayflower Theatre's Summer Youth company of 102 young people; the number of passengers on board the Mayflower. Drift is a new dance production incorporating awe inspiring aerial artists and dynamic contemporary movement in a timeless world, inspired by the Mayflower passenger's legend with a company of professional and community dancers.
