"A company that represents me, represents the individuals involved and speaks only through its artistic context" Ryan Harston

URBAN conceptz theatre is a visual and physical Theatre company set up by multi award winning artist Ryan David Harston.

Ryan's work as a theatre director consists of original storytelling, poetry and spoken word that is lifted onto stage in a series of original productions crafted through the art forms of abstract physicality, dance and object manipulation. His main aim as a director and performer is to make work based around contemporary stories and situations that are real, raw and reputable. Stories that can resonate with audiences on a universal and unique level, whilst maintaining integrity and heart.

Ryan's style of work could be described as high paced, raw and extremely physical. He fuses original poetic writing with vivid visual elements such as mask work, object manipulation and nuanced digital media. Creating a unique physical and visual language that has become known as his signature style .

With a fusion of skills and attributes including; Parkour, Gymnastics, Breakdance, Contemporary and physical theatre UCT are setting out to establish themselves as the leading URBAN movement theatre company known today.

What are Urban Conceptz up to at the moment 
Ryan was recently awarded a Slate artists' commission, a programme which supports Black artists in the North of England to work locally, nationally and internationally, building sustainable models for careers in the independent sector. 
You, Me & I (In production for 2019) is a coming together of two generations, a blend of raw movement, spoken word and electronic music. The performers dance, swing and defy gravity as they clamber and dance their way through a bespoke scaffolding structure, circus apparatus and projection mapping.
