About TWIST (written by members of the company):
The Way I See Theatre (TWIST) is a creative and political platform for young artists to tell stories through their own eyes. We come from different backgrounds, have different talents and tastes, but together we create theatre that represents us as a generation. It's an opportunity to refresh our minds, express our feelings and showcase our talent.
We are the youths of today making a musical adaptation of Shakespeare through sharing and combining our influences- street, R&B, Hip Hop, spoken word and jazz to create our own magic.
TWIST Theatre company is a dynamic creative group of individuals, who have found a way to tell Shakespeare in a way that feels true to us.
