Redruth International Festival of Theatre
RIFT are Felix Mortimer and Joshua Nawras
Since 2012 RIFT have produced 25 productions including collaborating with Alexandra Palace on ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in 2019, The Nineties Season of four plays in 2017, Fourteen new commissions produced as part of Shakespeare in Shoreditch Festival in 2016 and 2014, ‘Styx’ (2015) an audio adventure through London, ‘Macbeth’ in 2014, an overnight experience at Balfron Tower, ‘The Trial’ in 2013 which spilled the events of Kafka’s paranoid novel throughout Shoreditch and ‘O Brave New World’ 2012, a six part retelling of The Tempest from an east London shop front.
“astounding, a triumph, subtle and slick”
“An extraordinary evening of disorientation, intimidation and fascination.”
“Exhilarating, hugely ambitious”
“Horribly and impressively intense”
For five years, Felix and Josh ran STYX: a performance space which housed collaborations with a large number of cultural partners and welcoming 75,000 people a year through its doors – this space was recently demolished to make way for luxury flats, but from January 2022 RIFT have taken on the Redruth Library as the base for the Redruth International Festival of Theatre.
