Who you’ll see – LIVE LDN Artists:
BUBBLES by Caitlin Magnall-Kearns
Caitlin was born to be a clown, they’re funny, have little to no dignity, and, well, they’re fat. BUBBLES is a one-person karaoke comedy spectacular exploring the correlation between being fat and funny performed by a funny fat person. Send in the clowns!
demo: recording in process by demo theatre collective
Celebrate good times – come on! We’re going to explore joyful memories, how and why we record them, and whether we can ever relive and recapture those feelings. Through experimental music-theatre and found material, demo theatre collective will test how we create, record, and narrate our memories (and maybe yours too.)
The Monster That Feminism Made Me by Kafayat Adegoke
The Monster that Feminism made me is a research piece that takes the form of a silent dramatization. Looking through the lens of a typical woman from the Yorùba tribe, as it explores the cultural practice of ‘intimidation and domestic slavery’ – and discovering that it cuts across the board of cultures and ethnicities. Which then presents the recurring question, is Male Privilege real?
(Do not) Ask Me by Speakup Theatre
We’re survivors. Not the Destiny’s Child kind. We’re not entirely sure what kind though. It’s a work in progress. (Do Not) Ask Me is an exploration of identity, trauma, chaos and the women who hold us together.
Lonelyhearts by Hungry Milkman
Lonelyhearts is about loneliness in the information age. It is a study of internet culture using online advice columns as references of real life stories taken from 4chan and Youtube. In combination with Physical Theatre techniques, this is a performance about the illusion of actual interaction and the problems faced in day to day society. Some of these stories are more absurd than others, where isolation, introversion, lack of time/ community make these conversations so real and so essential.
CONTENT TO CONSIDER
Nudity, Strong language, themes of fatphobia, mental illness, abuse / domestic abuse / sexual abuse.
The company don’t believe there are any health warnings in this performance.
