Small Studio, Homerton College (Mary Allan Building), 184 Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 8PH


Tuesday 7th and Thursday 9th May 2019, starting at 7 pm


Polyphonic II - A Home The Size of Our Planet is the second community theatre production commissioned by the MEITS Research project with the aim of bringing the stories of everyday multilingual lives to a wider audience. The play is the result of a six-month project working with individuals drawn from a dozen linguistic backgrounds, exploring how speaking more than one language and living in a foreign country affects their lives.

Our first play, Polyphonic, was performed in October 2018 as part of the Festival of Ideas (Cambridge). Please visit these links to see a trailer and the full length performance.

We are pleased to invite you to our next theatre performance to be released Tuesday 7th and Thursday 9th May 2019, starting at 7pm in the Small Studio, Homerton College (Mary Allan Building) 184 Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 8PH

The performance will start at 7pm with a running time of one hour, including Q&A. Tickets are FREE but will be limited due to seating capacity at the venue. Book through this link

Due to seating capacity at the venue, if you book a ticket but then realise that you can't make it, it would really help us if you could release your booked tickets so that others can come.

Book early to avoid disappointment!


About Acting Now:
Acting Now is an applied theatre company established by Artistic Director Marina Pallarès-Elias in Cambridge. We are committed to bringing about change in communities and participants from all walks of life, especially those who experience disadvantage.

We have developed our very own methodology through working with these communities by drawing on the ethics of applied theatre and the aesthetics and principles of physical theatre. We call this Raw Theatre (or Theatre of Yes). Alongside this, we run physical theatre courses and training programmes, which bring together theatre practitioners, educators, community organizers, charity representatives, social workers, activists and many others who are interested in exploring and developing their acting skills and using theatre as a tool for communication, empowerment and debate.
