Thursday 23 January at 7.45pm

Tickets - £10, concessions - £8

In February 2019 Bristol based choreographer Anderson created the inaugural work for the first professional contemporary dance company in in Lima, Peru - PUCP Danza, founded by Fernando Castro of The PUCP university and led by artistic director Pachi Valle Riestra.

The work, Laberinto (Labyrinth), is based on Anderon’s British Council and Arts Council England funded travel research award into pre-Incan ceremonial sites and imagery, and is created in collaboration with Peruvian artists, - costume designer Alonso Nuñez, scenic and lighting artist Mariano Marquez and long-time collaborator British composer Steve Blake.

This work follows in Anderson’s series of works of historical mis-construction of reimagined lost dances.

The work uses designs and imagery from pre-Incan textiles, ceramics and architecture as a notation for a lost choreography that leads the audience on a serpentine journey into the darkness, into the labyrinth, into worlds beyond death.

The work draws on European mythical imagery of the underworld,

early 20th century Russian ballet’s idea of ancient Greek fauns and nymphs, Hollywood’s depiction of spirits from the underworld and musician Cab Calloway’s acerbic song about mortality.

In "The Future Is Unwritten", from British film director Julien Temple, Joe Strummer is revealed not just as a legend or musician, but as a true communicator of our times. Drawing on both a shared punk history and the close personal friendship which developed over the last years of Joe's life, Julien Temple's film is a celebration of Joe Strummer - before, during and after the Clash.

YANA AND THE YETI

Thursday 20 February at 11.30am & 2.30pm, ages 5+

Tickets - £8

Imagine being far, far from home and all alone, arriving in a remote snow-bound village, surrounded by dense forest and strange noises. This is how Yana’s story begins. She can’t understand a word anyone says and the other children tease her with tales of mythical mountain monsters. Then things start to get really hairy.... 

 

Featuring exquisite music, Arctic landscapes and a cast of extraordinary puppets, Yana and the Yeti is aimed at family audiences (5+). This is a dark, funny and poignant tale of a small child’s determination to be understood and her discovery that friends can come in the most unexpected shapes and sizes. 

This show was made in Northern Norway, above the Arctic Circle where Yetis still exist. 

Praise for Yana and the Yeti:

“Magical, beguiling, emotional and eye-wideningly beautiful”

FAGIN?

Produced by Kick In The Head

Wednesday 1 April at 7.30pm

Tickets - £14.25, ages 16-25 - £5

Who was Fagin?

Was he the Fagin in Dickens' Oliver Twist?

Was he the Fagin in Oliver! the musical?

Was he based on a real-life character?

Join Fagin as he reviews his situation during his final night in prison before being hanged. As madness envelops him he is ‘visited’ by some old acquaintances.

Find out who he really was and how he ended up as one of the best known, yet unknown, of Dickens' characters.

“This powerful new play gives a fresh twist on Dicken’s criminal Fagin.” 

Think you know Fagin? Think again.

Fagin? -written and directed by Simon Downing.

 “All three actors in the roles of Fagin (Keith Hill), Bill (Giles Shenton) and Nancy (Georgia Butt) deliver impeccable performances. In the centre of it all, the audience is captivated by Fagin’s diverse, manipulative and complex character.”

The Reviews Hub

“It is apowerful piece of work….it deserves to become an eventual classic.

The set is simple, the themes (of love, greed, deception, betrayal, regret and retribution) universal, the subtle interplay between the three characters intense and the background (Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist) so familiar that this small masterpiece could well be a theatrical staple.” You would be a fool to yourself to miss it.”

CHORES - A Comedy Circus Show For The Whole Family

Friday 29 May at 3pm

Tickets - £8, family of four - £30

Chores is the story of two typical young rascal boys playing in their messy bedroom. 

Suddenly, their mother's alarming screams rattle the boys back in to acrobatic action. A generous serve of comedy and chaotic acrobatics accompanies every attempt at cleaning their room and doing their chores. This mess of chaos and comedy concludes with a last-minute cleaning spree.

The parents are kept at bay and the rewards come flooding in! 

Inspired by slapstick legends Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, the side-splitting duo of Chores is coming your way. Two excitable brothers, are definitely, probably, maybe, just about to, almost, at some stage, going to do the chores their mother has asked them to do…

With highlights of skilled stunts and uproarious, interactive gags, and with very little spoken dialogue, the audience will find themselves on the edge of their seats and giggling until the chores are done.

Chores is brought to you by Julian Roberts and Morgan Wilson, the performers from Hoopla Clique. With collectively over 20 years’ experience, the exuberant talent of these two clowns redefines slapstick humour and show cases the true value of tenacity, teamwork, trust and cooperation through physical theatre.
