Nicky Bellenger – Guided Tour
Tonight, for one night only, my adventure will not go any further than the walls of the theatre. Follow me, your personal guide for this evening, as I try to guide you through the excitement and variety of our scratch performances…
Chloe Dechery – Marie
Marie (main picture) is a solo show about a daughter (Chloé) and a mother (Marie), investigating what it means to have the same blood – and feet. Alongside a series of video-clips of her childhood family kitchen, Chloé shares extracts from a correspondence made out of drawings, TV ads, texts and emails that she and her mother began exchanging following the creation of Marie. How do you start talking about family history? How can you try and give space to two voices on stage, a daughter’s and a mother’s engaging in a conversation, re-exploring the past and trying to make sense out of familial events and relationships?
ShadyJane Deborah Lampard – pig art
pig art has taken off in a pig way. The infamous pigsy brings pig art to Brighton, a city elite enough to host an event of this calibre. This is a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity to see this rare collection of contemporkary art exhibited and the creative genius of pigsy at work. Take away some pig art with you, as pigsy agrees to the sale of their work for the first time.
Charlotte Cassey – Brigette Cabaret
Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to be dazzled by the remarkable talents of Miss Brigitte Cabaret. There is a reason why her middle name is be variety: she sings, she dances and she is….in no way held against her will (disclaimer). Entertainment knows no bounds in this delightful cabaret show. Prepare to laugh and cry at the same time, such is Brigitte’s capacity to touch others. For one night only, Miss Brigitte Cabaret. Alive on stage.
The River People – Little Matter
Using puppetry, folk storytelling and live music, Little Matter explores an individual’s place in the universe and the search for the self. This unique take on the meaning of life combines the influences of mythology, quantum physics and William Blake.
You Need Me - Certain Dark Things
Certain Dark Things is an intense family drama set in 1950s Spain under Franco’s dictatorship, featuring the company’s trademark ‘in the round’ performance, colourful storytelling and beautiful live music. The drama follows the coming of age of a young Basque man as he wrestles with his own sexual awakening and his relationship with a matriarchal mother and domineering father, all against the backdrop of a Spanish life dominated at the time by politics and religion.
Gideon Reeling – Wonky Cabaret
Tonight Mr Reeling’s assistants do cabaret. The ladies of the W.I. are doing the garden, Lauren’s mates are doing getting famous and two moths do a lamp. Harmonies get up close and this time it’s personal.
UdifyDance – All for a few
First seen at The Place as part of 2010′s Resolution! season, All for a few has been reworked by the all male cast. With its sharp dynamic wit and physical explosions of energy, this piece is set to Chay Burrows’ thundering original score.
