TikTok Shocks

Theatre Centre and Headlong joined forces with TikTok to inspire and connect the next generation of theatre-makers. TikTok Shocks supported 13 exceptional young artists in beginning a career in the performing arts.

Thirteen artists aged 18-26 from across the UK were selected to participate in the programme. The artists were: 

  • Alice Flynn (She/they – Wokingham)
  • Bodhrán Mullan (He/they – Aberdeen)
  • Caitlin Magnall-Kearns (She/they – Belfast)
  • Dan Morrison (He/him – Largs)
  • Daniel Raja (He/him – Llanfairpwllgwyngyll)
  • Eleanor McKenzie (She/her – London)
  • Elizabeth Logan (She/her – Manchester)
  • Hannah Balogun (She/her – London)
  • Leo Shak (He/him – Labert)
  • Leonisha Barley (She/her – Liverpool)
  • Milla Sutton (He/they – London)
  • Stephanie Soh (She/her – London)
  • Tiah-Paige Burrell (They/them – Great Yarmouth)

In the eight weeks leading up to Halloween, the artists were given a series of 24-hour creative challenges to respond to using TikTok.  The creative challenges and the artists’ responses were published on the discovery homepage on TikTok, which launched on 16 October and culminated in a live event broadcast on TikTok on Halloween, showcasing the artists’ incredible work over the past two months.
