SISTERS ARE DOING IT FOR THEMSELVES.
We’re having a party and YOU’RE invited. It’s a party for ALL, with theatre for ALL, made by women (and a few good men). Redressing the balance, we are hosting The Party Somewhere Else Scratch Night. Come join us for laughter, maybe some tears (we’ll cry if we want to), super storytelling, dreams and fears.
Awesome acts present performance work in progress with an opportunity for you to give feedback and shape the future of these projects. It’s a chance to hang out with some of the most exciting theatre-makers in the region.
See 15 minute extracts of work-in-progress pieces from each of the following performers:
1623 Theatre – QUEER LADY M
Queer Lady M brings together drag, devised performance and Shakespeare to explore the real-life experiences of queer working-class artist Shane Gabriel.
Miranda Porter – S/he/it Happens
A gender-messing physical comedy exploring gender expression and identity through slapstick and wit.
BAIT – Tales
A punk feminist rave for princesses who don’t end up with princes.
Michelle Vacciana – Inconclusive
An extract of new writing that has been inspired by dreams, clairvoyance, hearing things and traversing the physical realm with an ethereal mind.
Philippa Mannion – Supernova
A show of stars burning at incredible temperatures in the depth of dark and cold space and instance mind-blowing climaxes in bedrooms across our own small planet.
