7 Seventeen-Year-Olds in a Screwed-Up World

Seven teenagers. Waiting. Dancing. Hoping. Tim Coker’s brand-new absurdist comedy takes a sharp, satirical look at the modern world. A play about teenagers, which also concerns itself with all the really serious stuff like isolation, racism, impending nuclear annihilation, refugeeism, nail salons and all the other gloomy stuff that’s going on. And after all that, the only thing left is to dance. ‘It is always reassuring to see a student-age company wittily trashing the junk culture fed to them’ **** (Times). ‘Fill the stage with wonder and worry’ **** (BritishTheatreGuide.com).www.facebook.com/macreadysquarepegs

Red rubber strands hang down, filling the space. Three girls, traces of this world, wander through the red forest, tracing fragmented memories of their lives before the blast. What was this blast? What happened? They trace their journey through improvised choreography, music and words. This work explores unreal childhood nightmares as a metaphor for the lost feeling of home, the altered memory of a pet cat and the messages that one would deliver at their last. Three separate, yet unified pieces, that together interweave the experience of life resonating in a turbulent world.www.instagram.com/awayfromhome.art/

Being Frank

Actor, impersonator, and song-and-dance man Frank Moran celebrates the characters of the Marx brothers as he dexterously weaves their lives into his own. A real ‘New York story,’ Moran spins a rollicking tale of his younger self and all his heroes, including his working-class family, the Broadway greats, and – of course – Groucho Marx. Riddled with stories both comic and tragic, Moran dances, literally, between the comic and the tragic, as he discovers how powerful wearing all these different masks has really become.www.unmutedparticipants.comwww.facebook.com/unmutedparticipantswww.instagram.com/unmutedparticipants/www.vimeo.com/showcase/c-arts-unmuted-participantswww.facebook.com/frankmoran11www.instagram.com/realfrankmoran/www.youtube.com/channel/UCQh8DpbQxDBxDU9URn9I8Tw Watch TrailerWatch Season Trailer

This modern-day, interactive and bizarrely comedic adaptation of the 1590s tragedy, Doctor Faustus (adapted by Splendid Productions) asks audience members to consider their own response to the century-spanning question: how moral and ethical are we as a species?

A contemporary drama created by Histeria Teatro that pays homage to those rock stars who died young, and in circumstances of suicide or overdose. A common thread ties them together: they had everything, lived fast and ended up burdened by a great emptiness that led to a premature death. Through Jail's character, we enter the world of rock'n'roll to try to understand what was going on in the minds of these artists and why they reached this fateful end at the peak of their careers.www.histeriateatro.eswww.facebook.com/histeriateatrowww.instagram.com/histeriateatro/

From 1519 to 1522 Fernando de Magallanes set off to circumnavigate the globe. Magallanes succumbed to a poisoned arrow, but his expedition was successful. This historical science-fiction play explores the first round-the-world voyage and Ferdinand Magallan’s relationship with church, state, his co-explorer Juan Sebastián Elcano, and indigenous people from five continents. During a 500-year confinement, Magellan strikes up dialogues with Shakespeare, stars and stones in his efforts to stay sane. He time-travels from evolution to globalisation, forcing us to ask ourselves exactly what the first circumnavigation of the earth has brought to us, five hundred years later.www.tshock.orgwww.facebook.com/tshockemocionalwww.instagram.com/tshockculturaemocional/ Watch Trailer

Mar de fons (Deep Sea)

In 1936 Spanish Republican troops disembarked on the shores of Majorca to recover the island, which had been taken over by the military. The operation was a failure, and soon the Republicans were defeated in retreat, leaving many comrades behind on the ground. Survivors were made an example of, tortured, and executed. Mar de fons explores the consequences of these events and the following repression, and how it has affected Majorcan society. Documentary theatre based on real testimonials of people involved in the Spanish Civil War and the repression that followed. The Trial of God, Moscow, 1919, and subsequent execution: the search for one’s own identity, the dynamics of power, and the methods by which we are manipulated by the state.

Midnight Wine

Well-respected singer/songwriter shares songs, wine and stories from 50 years on the folk scene, touring UK and Europe. He's now thinking he may have chosen the wrong genre… Using drama and song, he introduces Journeyman, who helps performer and audience chill out and advise. Midnight Wine was born from the enforced lockdown time of self-reflection. The songs are chosen at random before each performance, so if you come more than once, you may not necessarily hear the same set. ‘This is not just a recital. It is a show with a vibrant narrative’ (Tony Hayes, Tempo FM).www.chrismilner.comwww.facebook.com/chrismilner.journeyman.9webaddresswebaddress

Migrant Shakespeare

Think you know your Shakespeare? Think again! This is Shakespeare as you’ve never seen him before – ‘trippingly on the tongue’… Migrant actors take on the Bard, reinterpreting his words in alien environments you will never have imagined before. They give his iconic characters a new life, migrating them into the roles assigned to outsiders by society. Hamlet is a meat-packer, King Lear a construction worker, Caliban a hotel cleaner, Lady Macbeth a housewife looking after children, and Shylock washes the dishes in a restaurant. This is no one Bard: Shakespeare belongs both to no-one and to everyone.www.seyyar.companywww.facebook.com/seyyarcompanywww.instagram.com/seyyarcompanywww.youtube.com/channel/UClJlJDJKbTGUEb2hxv1pf-Awww.tiktok.com/@seyyarcompanyopen.spotify.com/user/3b0cyl3st83fthn2aubq6awklsoundcloud.com/seyyar-company Watch Trailer

Mommy's Dead and They Buried Her in Moscow

Irina, Masha, and Olya are bored, homesick, and wildly over-educated. Mom and Dad are dead. Only one thought keeps them going in this remote, military town: ‘Get the F*@k out of here and back to Moscow!’ A fast-moving, high-spirited contemporary riff on Chekhov's Three Sisters. Devised by the company and filmed in the historic Ellen Theatre in Montana, this adaptation of the Russian classic is a high-spirited meditation on grief, longing, and (miraculously) hope. Winner of the Derek Award for Special Merit, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2021. ‘A spiked vodka shot wrapped in a production that magnificently captures the essence of live theatre' (FrontMezzJunkies.com).www.nervoustheatre.com/mommys-deadhttps://www.facebook.com/nervoustheatrecohttps://www.instagram.com/nervous.theatre/a> Watch Trailer #1Watch Trailer #2

Mr Moon

Our story is human, that of a company built on the road, created through encounters, personal tragedies and destinies. Who are we? Musicians? Clown-puppeteers? Madmen or poets? Why does nothing we say seem believable? And above all, why do we continue to play? We have been travelling for two centuries, attached to each other, storytellers from another time. We are those who were found, those who were lost before we were found, and those who stood in the shadows all along. Not really from yesterday, we wander from one scene to another. We are the Lost Children.www.mooncabaret.com/shows-mrmoon-theatrewww.facebook.com/MrMoonCabaretwww.instagram.com/moon.cabaretwww.soundcloud.com/moon-cabaret Watch Trailer

NOunderstanding

Performance is a metaphor and allegory of the world we live in, of interconnections, of incommunicability. We live in the era of global communication, but it has never been so difficult to be understood. We do not listen with the intention of understanding, but with the intention of answering. In empathic listening, the situation is reversed: ears are used, but also eyes and heart. What if we look for the silence within us: silence that allows us to perceive without distortions, and to truly understand the heart with our ears and eyes?www.saramarinelli.comwww.facebook.com/compagnia.freefallwww.instagram.com/freefall_dance_company Watch Trailer #1Watch Trailer #2

Phantom Pain

Stories of five fictional women, fundamentally different and unconnected, but sharing the same core: the pain of living on when something essential is taken away. Human trafficking, family separation, suicide, depression, and rape are some of the themes explored in this original piece. Based on true events, accounts and testimonies. A reminder of the human stories behind news and statistics, told through poetry, dance, and monologues. In 1936 Spanish Republican troops disembarked on the shores of Majorca to recover the island, which had been taken over by the military. The operation was a failure, and soon the Republicans were defeated in retreat, leaving many comrades behind on the ground. Survivors were made an example of, tortured, and executed. Mar de fons explores the consequences of these events and the following repression, and how it has affected Majorcan society. Documentary theatre based on real testimonials of people involved in the Spanish Civil War and repression that followed. Winner of the Derek Award for Best Overseas Show, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2021. Writer/performer: Lennora Esi. Producer: Rzgar Hama. ‘A powerful piece! There are many levels displayed through the performance of these powerful stories’ (George Belliveau). ‘What a profoundly important piece of work’ (Marvin Westwood).www.skytheatregroup.com Watch Trailer

Shattered

In third grade, Diana kicked her crush in the crotch and her love life didn’t improve from there. What starts as an innocent look into her relationship past, turns into a comedic and heartbreakingly raw exploration of dating, dysfunction, and sexual devastation - told through the voices of 35 characters. Using comedy to take us through tragedy, Shattered ultimately tells the tale of one individual picking up the broken pieces of herself and learning to live again. ‘A woman of 1,000 faces’ (SplashMags.com). ‘Truly epic’ (NoHoArtsDistrict.com). ‘A real tour-de-force’ **** (BouquetsBrickbatsReviews.com). ‘A raw, visceral dissection of the human psyche’ ***** (BroadwayBaby.com).Performed live in our Edinburgh Fringe 2022 season and also available in our year-round digital on-demand programme.www.dianavarco.comwww.instagram.com/dianavarco/ Watch TeaserWatch Trailer

Still Life

A site-specific theatrical performance combining movement and text, featuring two women and two couches in two different cities. One in Berlin, the other in Montréal: two performers united through the magic of video to create clumsy and crazy choreography. In a seemingly banal space, a surreal universe appears to offer a comical and absurd look at the world around us. Claude Breton-Potvin and Chantal Dupuis are French-Canadian actresses. Together, they explore how the simple and the mundane can turn into joy and transcendence. Still Life premiered at the OFFTA festival in Montréal in 2021.www.facebook.com/Projet.Still.Lifewww.instagram.com/projet_still_life Watch Trailer

This original solo performance follows the story of a girl-woman-dancer’s experiences with the eating disorder bulimia, and the way she healed through learning psychology and expressive arts. Referring to the theories she learned during her therapy studies, and with honest artistic physical expression, Tal goes back in time and re-tells the memories and events of her life, the pain and suffering she experienced, what people around her said, and the things society tells us.

Tales of Xenia

The ancient Greeks held the idea of Xenia sacred: it’s the concept of helping strangers, offering hospitality to lost travellers. It’s time to celebrate Xenia again: in today’s landscape of bleak newsfeeds and toxic algorithms, Bear Pit Theatre went looking for tales of everyday hope and a brighter worldview. With verbatim accounts drawn from war-torn Afghanistan to Soviet Russia, from drunken inter-railing to the friendliest mugging ever, these tales are an antidote to cynicism. We focus on truth and simplicity, merging the words of everyday decency with physical theatre and puppetry in a glorious carnival of optimism.www.instagram.com/alleynsdrama/

Tania Lacy: Catch a Falling Star

In the early 90s, Australian comedian Tania Lacy was so famous she couldn't walk down the street without being mobbed. Dubbed the 'enfant terrible' of Aussie TV, she soon became 'enfant unemployable' for being too mouthy. Fortunately for Tania, women are quite 'in' right now, so there's a good chance she'll get away with it this time. She might have been too naughty for the nineties but that was then, this is now and she's decided she can be 'enfant' anything she wants!tanialacy.comwww.facebook.com/tania.lacywww.instagram.com/tanialacy/ Watch Trailer

The Onion

What do you see? What do you want to see? Is it real? Is it complete? Dive into the decaying layers of oneself, and keep peeling the onion. This fresh dance piece explores layers of identity and questions the different stages of one’s personality, the need to belong, and to understand others and ourselves in our society. As ephemeral as a kiss and as strong as an embrace, the layers peel themselves off, leaving one never looking the same, and giving space for endless beginnings.

An avant-garde performance, created from three elements: words, dance, and projection mapping. With the rapid development of technology, we can instantly exchange words with someone far away. How will language change as we confront each other as anonymous bodies with no physical connection?

The Tragic-Comedy of Things

A one-man performance spoken directly to the audience. A story told like the teller is thinking it through as he speaks. There is humour in the use of language. If one wants to compare it, one could consider it to be similar in ways to a piece of Beckett. The character speaks as if he's thinking at the time, remembering and describing the things in his room, the room itself and his surprise and reaction to his own thoughts. It is as if he is speaking to the audience, but the audience could be himself.www.facebook.com/Neilosheaactor

Topography of Breath 2.0

A direct encounter with skin, flesh and breath. In current neo-liberal work conditions, where economic performance drives national identity, the body becomes a form of human capital to be disciplined for constant growth. By working with the raw processes of breath, its muscularity and affects, Pat Toh considers how a body struggles to endure a pandemic, as she examines the lived experience of being productive at such a time. In response to restrictions on in-person gatherings, this innovative digital work is a reflection on present times, and our relationship to breath and breathlessness.www.pattoh.comwww.instagram.com/pattohling Watch Trailer #1Watch Trailer #2

‘When I was a boy we used to have an ‘ala’ (niche) in our old house, where we will always put something, a picture of God, or a candle, or an oil lamp.

7 Seventeen-Year-Olds in a Screwed-Up World

Seven teenagers. Waiting. Dancing. Hoping. Tim Coker’s brand-new absurdist comedy takes a sharp, satirical look at the modern world. A play about teenagers, which also concerns itself with all the really serious stuff like isolation, racism, impending nuclear annihilation, refugeeism, nail salons and all the other gloomy stuff that’s going on. And after all that, the only thing left is to dance. ‘It is always reassuring to see a student-age company wittily trashing the junk culture fed to them’ **** (Times). ‘Fill the stage with wonder and worry’ **** (BritishTheatreGuide.com).www.facebook.com/macreadysquarepegs

Antennae

A pandemic-induced trip down memory lane, featuring puppets and a treatise on The Sopranos, is put into hyperspeed when a gender non-conforming praying mantis named E appears in Kelsey’s study. This leads her down a path of discovery of the patterns that shaped who she thinks she is. Before going further, she must uncover a truth she might not be willing to face – at least, not on her own… This piece leans into the voyeuristic nature of Zoom performances, explores the binaries we occupy, and asks how we can leap past old behaviours into the possibilities of the unknown.www.unmutedparticipants.comwww.facebook.com/unmutedparticipantswww.instagram.com/unmutedparticipants/www.vimeo.com/showcase/c-arts-unmuted-participantswww.instagram.com/kelseysiepser/ Watch TrailerWatch Season Trailer

Away From Home

Red rubber strands hang down, filling the space. Three girls, traces of this world, wander through the red forest, tracing fragmented memories of their lives before the blast. What was this blast? What happened? They trace their journey through improvised choreography, music and words. This work explores unreal childhood nightmares as a metaphor for the lost feeling of home, the altered memory of a pet cat and the messages that one would deliver at their last. Three separate, yet unified pieces, that together interweave the experience of life resonating in a turbulent world.www.instagram.com/awayfromhome.art/

Being Frank

Actor, impersonator, and song-and-dance man Frank Moran celebrates the characters of the Marx brothers as he dexterously weaves their lives into his own. A real ‘New York story,’ Moran spins a rollicking tale of his younger self and all his heroes, including his working-class family, the Broadway greats, and – of course – Groucho Marx. Riddled with stories both comic and tragic, Moran dances, literally, between the comic and the tragic, as he discovers how powerful wearing all these different masks has really become.www.unmutedparticipants.comwww.facebook.com/unmutedparticipantswww.instagram.com/unmutedparticipants/www.vimeo.com/showcase/c-arts-unmuted-participantswww.facebook.com/frankmoran11www.instagram.com/realfrankmoran/www.youtube.com/channel/UCQh8DpbQxDBxDU9URn9I8Tw Watch TrailerWatch Season Trailer

Dear Donald / Dear Hillary (Their Secret Correspondence)

Elaine Liner’s unapologetically satirical play takes liberties for laughs, with the biographies of famous political rivals Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton. What if they’d known each other since the age of eight, assigned to be pen-pals as second-graders? In these heretofore undiscovered personal missives spanning half a century, right up until November 2020, we see their awkward friendship wax and wane in letters that borrow liberally (but not conservatively) from Trump and Clinton’s actual public dialogue. You might be surprised who gets the last word! Watch Trailer #1Watch Trailer #2Watch Letter #1Watch Letter #2Watch Letter #3Watch Letter #4

Dickin' Around

What does it take to satiate a heartbroken 20-something homosexual with a penchant for deep-diving into the sensory stimuli he finds along the way? In this hour-long piece, Michael lets us into his private world, and invites us to confront and ruminate on the beautiful, the icky, and the confusing together. This show is about sex. This show is not about sex. This show is for anyone who’s ever felt lost at sea and exhausted themselves swimming to shore. Dive underneath the raunch of this show and you’ll find a universally relatable, tender underbelly.www.unmutedparticipants.comwww.facebook.com/unmutedparticipantswww.instagram.com/unmutedparticipants/www.vimeo.com/showcase/c-arts-unmuted-participants Watch TrailerWatch Season Trailer

Django – A Cartoon Western

Western hero Django returns to his hometown. He wants revenge – but doesn't know on whom yet. But since every good western hero has to take revenge somehow, Django will also take revenge. This solo noise pantomime races from one spectacle to the next with wild gunfights and absurdly grotesque fisticuffs. It takes key scenes from Sergio Corbucci's 1966 film of the same name and exaggerates them into the grotesque. ‘It is simply brilliant and highly professional how Sechert changes characters in a matter of seconds’ (Mark Daniel, Leipziger Volkszeitung).www.knalltheater.de/django-3/www.facebook.com/knalltheater Watch Trailer

Doctor Faustus

What would you sacrifice in exchange for riches and fame? Family? Friends? Reputation? Soul? This modern-day, interactive and bizarrely comedic adaptation of the 1590s tragedy, Doctor Faustus (adapted by Splendid Productions) asks audience members to consider their own response to the century-spanning question: how moral and ethical are we as a species? A question that's never been more relevant than it is now in a world of sleaze, cancel-culture and media self-promotion. An ensemble of young performers consider how little has changed over the centuries and what do we mean by good and bad life choices?

How do individuals react to the same event? To what extent does your life, your mistakes, your hopes and dreams, affect your perception of reality? And do you need a bath to publish a report? Dreamliner is the attempt at answering these questions and more, brought to you by the minds of the Situationalists. Part-written, part-devised, Dreamliner is a surreal exploration of individual experience and the uselessness of British crisis management. Fresh from a sell-out pre-Edinburgh run at the Act II and Homecoming festivals. Come see the play that they’re all dreaming about.

A powerful combination of film, text, and performance exploring the birth of modern human rights, told through the eyes of Nuremberg prosecutor and champion of the ECHR, David Maxwell Fyfe. His words intertwine with Sue Casson’s musical settings of the poets who inspired him on his journey along his stream of natural law. Conceived and performed by members of the next generation of Maxwell Fyfe’s family. ‘Tells a very necessary story of not only an amazing man, but also the hopelessness of man and mankind's hope for the future. Brilliantly performed’ (Derek Awards). ‘Richly layered… celebrates the concept of natural law’ (LouReviews.blog).www.englishcabaret.co.ukwww.facebook.com/EnglishCabaretwww.instagram.com/streamsofnaturallawwww.youtube.com/channel/UCKh0R1gZ6GQ7c_tgs4ebpBgsoundcloud.com/english-cabaret/sets/dreams-of-peace-and-freedom Watch Trailer

A contemporary drama created by Histeria Teatro that pays homage to those rock stars who died young, and in circumstances of suicide or overdose. A common thread ties them together: they had everything, lived fast and ended up burdened by a great emptiness that led to a premature death. Through Jail's character, we enter the world of rock'n'roll to try to understand what was going on in the minds of these artists and why they reached this fateful end at the peak of their careers.www.histeriateatro.eswww.facebook.com/histeriateatrowww.instagram.com/histeriateatro/

Language Games

Absurdist take on philosophy and language. A present-day student and activist, Sheela joins Ludwig Wittgenstein, Paul Shepard and Walter Benjamin for a spirited game of mahjong. As they play, her energy conjures Joseph Beuys as a mythological hare. Invisible to the players, he interjects cultural incantations, while the players contemplate how language evolved from naming animals to representing them with signs, and how myths serve the human need to imagine. Physical chair-play creates an escalating rhythm as tensions build… As the chair-e-ography builds to a crescendo, Sheela pushes back against male aggression and wins the game.www.peculiarworks.org/languagegameswww.facebook.com/peculiarworks Watch Trailer

Magallanes.0

From 1519 to 1522 Fernando de Magallanes set off to circumnavigate the globe. Magallanes succumbed to a poisoned arrow, but his expedition was successful. This historical science-fiction play explores the first round-the-world voyage and Ferdinand Magallan’s relationship with church, state, his co-explorer Juan Sebastián Elcano, and indigenous people from five continents. During a 500-year confinement, Magellan strikes up dialogues with Shakespeare, stars and stones in his efforts to stay sane. He time-travels from evolution to globalisation, forcing us to ask ourselves exactly what the first circumnavigation of the earth has brought to us, five hundred years later.www.tshock.orgwww.facebook.com/tshockemocionalwww.instagram.com/tshockculturaemocional/ Watch Trailer

Mar de fons (Deep Sea)

In 1936 Spanish Republican troops disembarked on the shores of Majorca to recover the island, which had been taken over by the military. The operation was a failure, and soon the Republicans were defeated in retreat, leaving many comrades behind on the ground. Survivors were made an example of, tortured, and executed. Mar de fons explores the consequences of these events and the following repression, and how it has affected Majorcan society. Documentary theatre based on real testimonials of people involved in the Spanish Civil War and the repression that followed. The Trial of God, Moscow, 1919, and subsequent execution: the search for one’s own identity, the dynamics of power, and the methods by which we are manipulated by the state. Through dance, theatre and humour, we talk about power and the search for referents when God is dead. inclusive, intergenerational, humorous poetic, compelling, dance-theatre epic. Created by professional performers and performers of diverse abilities. directed by Vero Cendoya and Israel Solà, director of the company La Calòrica. Nominated for Spanish MAX awards for best choreography, best show and best original music.

Migrant Shakespeare

Think you know your Shakespeare? Think again! This is Shakespeare as you’ve never seen him before – ‘trippingly on the tongue’… Migrant actors take on the Bard, reinterpreting his words in alien environments you will never have imagined before. They give his iconic characters a new life, migrating them into the roles assigned to outsiders by society. Hamlet is a meat-packer, King Lear a construction worker, Caliban a hotel cleaner, Lady Macbeth a housewife looking after children, and Shylock washes the dishes in a restaurant. This is no one Bard: Shakespeare belongs both to no-one and to everyone.www.seyyar.companywww.facebook.com/seyyarcompanywww.instagram.com/seyyarcompanywww.youtube.com/channel/UClJlJDJKbTGUEb2hxv1pf-Awww.tiktok.com/@seyyarcompanyopen.spotify.com/user/3b0cyl3st83fthn2aubq6awklsoundcloud.com/seyyar-company Watch Trailer

Mommy's Dead and They Buried Her in Moscow

Mr Moon

Our story is human, that of a company built on the road, created through encounters, personal tragedies and destinies. Who are we? Musicians? Clown-puppeteers? Madmen or poets? Why does nothing we say seem believable? And above all, why do we continue to play? We have been travelling for two centuries, attached to each other, storytellers from another time. We are those who were found, those who were lost before we were found, and those who stood in the shadows all along. Not really from yesterday, we wander from one scene to another.

We live in the era of global communication, but it has never been so difficult to be understood. We do not listen with the intention of understanding, but with the intention of answering. In empathic listening, the situation is reversed: ears are used, but also eyes and heart.

Rob

When Rob got on his ship, he didn't know he would never reach his destination. But maybe fate had a place reserved for him: an island where all he will find is himself. When life drifts, imagination becomes our only lifeboat. Dear audience, thank you for coming to join Rob in his solitude. But don't yell at him, don't call him: he won't be able to hear you. Even though his island seems to be on the outside, it actually resides inside him.

SHE(ME): Reclaiming Shame

Shame. That uncomfortable, ugly thing that we all carry around, but rarely look closely at. So what happens if we stage it, and by doing so, reclaim it and take away its power? Six women from across the UK – and 10 hours of virtual rehearsal – bring you this experiment in building shame-resilience through devised, digital performance art. The cast confronts the unspoken and the uncomfortable with care, humour and creativity in this original new piece.www.sheadonovan.org/indigo-arts-collectivewww.facebook.com/theindigoartscollectivewww.instagram.com/indigoartscollective Watch Trailer

Satan vs God

Lucifer, the fallen angel, begs God’s permission to return to Heaven: ‘You forgave everyone, but me. Why not me? I was first.’ Are Satan and God within the eyes and deeds of humankind? Is Satan responsible for all he is accused of? Have we ever heard him testify? Labelled ‘Father of Lies’ and “Prince of Darkness’, Satan puts forward his case: ‘Who says your way is right? They have forgotten you.’ This original piece explores and opens a conversation about religion, faith and humanity that is normally taboo or censored. A solo tour-de-force with music and movement. Winner of the Derek Award for Spirit of the Fringe, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2021. ‘Original… fresh’ (LouReviews.blog). ‘Mesmerising, seductive and powerful… hauntingly beautiful… I’m blown away by the quality of the writing… Deaon is an electric performer… His words get under your skin and stay there’ (NicsReviews2021.wordpress.com/brighton-fringe-2022)www.deaongriffinpressley.comwww.facebook.com/satanvsgod.officialwww.instagram.com/satanvsgodplay Watch Trailer #1Watch Trailer #2Watch Trailer #3

Searching and Knowing

World premiere live vocal piece with movement and electronic score, expressing the journey through a breast magnetic imaging test. Soprano, priest, coach, and survivor Joyce Parry Moore joins two dancers to create healing images of Valkyries, playing children, shaman. German composer Stefan Hakenberg set Parry-Moore’s poetry – influenced by Psalm 139 and the words of medieval mystic Dame Julian of Norwich – to vocal music, and the sounds recorded from an actual breast MRI into accompaniment, painting the inner experience of a woman’s search to knit herself back together with humour and grace.

Tales of Xenia

The ancient Greeks held the idea of Xenia sacred: it’s the concept of helping strangers, offering hospitality to lost travellers. It’s time to celebrate Xenia again: in today’s landscape of bleak newsfeeds and toxic algorithms, Bear Pit Theatre went looking for tales of everyday hope and a brighter worldview. With verbatim accounts drawn from war-torn Afghanistan to Soviet Russia, from drunken inter-railing to the friendliest mugging ever, these tales are an antidote to cynicism. We focus on truth and simplicity, merging the words of everyday decency with physical theatre and puppetry in a glorious carnival of optimism.www.instagram.com/alleynsdrama/

Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History

A shameless ode to desolate puppy-love in all its mundane, absurdist glory, featuring toads, sperm-banks and carrots. A tragicomic theatre monologue by Verona Verbakel, intended to make people laugh with her misery, although also aiming to bring light to patriarchal stereotypes, dangerous gender role-patterns, and the loneliness of dating. Explicit language. Based on true events.www.veronaverbakel.com/well-behaved-women-seldom-make-history.htmlwww.facebook.com/veronaverbakelwww.instagram.com/veronaverbakel/webaddress Watch Trailer

Why, Gahd, WHY?!

As the world falls into chaos, humanity is looking for its path. How will humanity navigate this treacherous terrain of uncertainty? Drag, of course! How better to understand the absurdity of it all? Why, Gahd? WHY?! is a journey into the chaos and a guiding light. Two living Gahds have blessed the mortals with their presence and will share their knowledge of the universe through the ancient arts of divination and drag… which might just be tainted with pop culture references, witty banter, and a flair for the dramatic. Fresh from the 2021 OFFTA festival in Montréal.www.houseofgahd.comwww.facebook.com/HouseOfGahdwww.instagram.com/houseofgahdwww.youtube.com/channel/UCVmWjc_GWSXicSrtlJSv-9A Watch Preview – Flat EarthWatch Preview – Rosemary’s Baby

Willy’s Lil Virgin Queen

Award-winning actress and playwright Terra Taylor Knudson uses wit, anecdotes, and creative conjecture to weave Shakespeare’s works into her own coming-of-age story, and illustrates how the Bard shaped her life and gave her a voice. With humour, Terra explores her passion for Shakespeare, and connects classic characters with modern experiences. Accessible to all audiences. ’Throughout the all too brief 75 minutes, your head is left spinning as you experience her lifetime, British royal history, and glimpses into some of Shakespeare’s best scenes and soliloquies’ (www.Gazettes.com). ‘Highly entertaining, deeply moving. Not to be missed!’ (Hollywood Fringe Festival).www.terrataylorknudson.comwww.oliotheatreworks.orgwww.facebook.com/willyslilvirginqueenwww.instagram.com/terrataylorknudson.otw/ Watch Trailer

With-in

‘When I was a boy we used to have an ‘ala’ (niche) in our old house, where we will always put something, a picture of God, or a candle, or an oil lamp. Those spaces created bigger resonance in my consciousness, to a bigger universe than my small little world.’ How does one project emotion through the physicality of the limbs and torso? This new site-specific physical piece from Oslo-based duo Nora Svenning and Sudesh Adhana, with video art from Antero Hein and music from Adun Kleive, explores the expression of almost being a sculpture.www.xproarts.comwww.instagram.com/sudeshadhanavimeo.com/user23043259 Watch Trailer

Zoon to be Other

Created during lockdown 2020 in Mexico City, this short piece reveals an oneiric transformation through desire and loneliness.

With the collaboration of MOC Collective, Zoon to be Other is an original video directed by Patrick Trigoso and Catalina Navarrete, filmed and edited by Sebastián Foss, with music from Héctor Guerrero.www.hekatombe.orgwww.facebook.com/hekatombe.produccionwww.instagram.com/catalinanhmx Watch Trailer
