Yes My Selector by Ross Sutherland

Poet Ross Sutherland delivers a love monologue, edited together from real things he has shouted at drum and bass DJs mid-set. Ross hosts the new writing podcast, Imaginary Advice. His plays include Stand By For Tape Back Up and Party Trap. His poetry is available from Penned in the Margins.

High Rise Estate Of Mind? (Working Title) by Beats & Elements

The High Rise. For some a new home. A new start. For others a transitional space  that is never regarded as home. Constantly waiting.
In this block, tenants are placed on different levels  corresponding to their respective class.  Everyone wants to rise.  A new couple have finally enough points to be housed.  How long will they last? And what of the long standing tenants- how has living here  Affected them?
This scratch  is exploring class and the housing crisis created by Beats & Elements, told through Mcing,  Beatboxing,  looping  and kaoss pads.

Elephant & Castle by Lillian Henley and Tom Adams (pictured)

“Im going to get in a cupboard and take you to Elephant and Castle”, said Tom. “Good” said Lillian and she turned over, taking the bed covers with her.

Husband and Wife, Lillian and Tom, play Wife and Husband. They share a bed. Lillian likes to sleep. Tom likes to sleep walk. And sleep talk. A lot. Part live music gig, part Theatre. This is Gig Theatre. Elephant and Castle is another world between waking and sleeping. This is a scratch performance of 20 minutes performed by award winning
 Lillian Henley (1927) and Tom Adams (Still Score, Howl at the Moon)

I Belong by Nima Séne

“I belong” explores the sensation of belonging –
the politics of belonging –
the nostalgia of belonging –
the illusion of belonging –
the seduction of belonging.

Using spoken word, movement, electronic music, pop cultural references and autobiographical absurdism Nima Séne re-discovers what it means to belong with the help of her persona Beige B*tch.

Supported by a BANNER Graduate Award 2016, an Artsadmin initiative supported by Goldsmiths, University of London and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
