Big Bang is CPT’s regular scratch night: an explosion of performance from which new universes of theatre may one day emerge. These jam-packed platforms are highlights of any CPT season: the place to see wild and wonderful new projects take their first steps.

Each bill features three or four artists or companies performing 15-20mins of fresh-from-the-rehearsal-room work-in-development. They’re doing so because they want to know what works and what doesn’t, and they’d love you to tell them. So please join us for – and share your thoughts on – these exclusive previews of tomorrow’s most exciting theatre, today…

Dirty Laundry by Next to Him Productions  

Dirty Laundry is a physical theatre show about the vicious power and abuse cycle in the Fast Fashion industry. Through movement, text and sound we battle with our slippery relationship to clothes and how female garment workers often pay the true price for quick, on-demand fashion. Join us as we unravel the threads of fashion’s dark secrets.  

We have partnered with Jenerous Clothing brand and Slow Fashion Movement UK to develop this work-in-progress showing at CPT.| Instagram: @camila.roro

Vapid by Princess Scissors  

Lattes. Bath bombs. Glitter. There is a woman who would cover herself from head to toe in glitter and dine on the excess. But the glitter won’t stay on forever. What becomes of her body when the glitter is gone? 

Created and performed by artist Sarah Shear and presented by Princess Scissors, Vapid explores the impulse to judge bodies and the space they take up. It’s a journey of pleasure and pop music in this durational glitter-filled piece. Are you ready to shake it off?
