One Minute Theatre Festival

17 August 2020

Originating from an idea by Ged Stephenson, the One Minute Theatre Festival is 35 quick fire, 60 second films made by Somerset artists.  

They were commissioned collaboratively in partnership with Wassail Theatre during Covid-19 lockdown for the theatre-making community in Somerset to support each other in these challenging and surreal times.  

Responding quickly and creatively, people from across the theatre-making spectrum used their imaginations to produce snapshots of what the world means to them right now. Many have been created using the simplest of means, on phones, tablets and laptops, often alone, and always safely at home.  

You can see all the films on the BARN Theatre Somerset YouTube Channel They are best viewed via the PLAY ALL option.  

BARN is a collective theatre initiative, facilitated by Take Art, to support Somerset's theatre-making sector.
