Zest Theatre is an East Midlands company that exists to bring inspiration and innovation to a new generation of theatre audiences. The company tours to theatres, festivals, outdoor spaces and schools with award winning work described as ‘unpretentious’ (The Stage) and ‘invigorating’ (The British Theatre Guide). Zest shows are often interactive and immersive and actively place young people right at the heart of the story.
During the pandemic Zest worked remotely with young people from across the UK (all of whom were involved in the company’s touring show Youthquake in 2019) and produced new piece ‘*untitled’ that was filmed entirely on young people’s phones.
The company has since delivered a range of dynamic creative consultancy projects with young people including The Forum and is at the forefront of finding creative ways to give young people a voice.
