Part of The Shape Of Things To Come: two weeks of hot-off-the-press works-in-progress from CPT’s favourite artists.

Presented by Barrel Organ

Barrel Organ return with LIVE, a scratch night for experimental and non-traditional work that specifically acknowledges the presence of the audience and plays with the ‘liveness’ of theatre.

As a company, CPT associates Barrel Organ try to make work that is self-consciously theatrical; that plays with the unique ‘liveness’ that theatre offers as an art form; and continually seeks to explore and deconstruct the relationship between performer and spectator

The night will showcase bold, experimental and uncompromising work that tackles a wide range of issues, agendas and ideas. A space for artists working in/with non-traditional forms to be able to test new material in front of an audience with the real aim of getting constructive and beneficial criticism.

LIVE began at Camden People’s Theatre as a night that seeks to offer the opportunity for emerging, as well as more established, artists and companies to test up to 20 minutes of material in front of an audience.

The line up:

Joseph Morgan Schofield with Here Comes The Sun (I want your love), Ritual performance art for queer survival ft. glitter, storytelling and soothsaying. @jmschofield

Nour-Ani Sisserian with Boxxxxes, A solo performance about women’s identity. @noursisserian

Cilla Lafayette (COUNCIL XI) with Eleven, “An experiment that may change the course of the worlds destiny”. A Music Theatre ensemble layered with soothing melodies; humorous, soulful and psychedelic. @cillalafayette

Nathan Ellis, Charlotte Fraser and Emilie Labourey (We Dance) with No One is Coming to Save You, A show about children who saw images of the twin towers falling, of bombs dropping and of Saddam Hussein’s hanging, whilst they were still watching “Matilda” on repeat. @nathanana

About Barrel Organ

Barrel Organ are a UK based touring company who work collaboratively and collectively to create politically engaged theatre. Their style is inherently, self-consciously theatrical. They draw attention to the context of ‘theatre’ and highlight the audience’s relationship to their surroundings. They create pieces which engage with the audience and ask them to interrogate 21st-century culture. Though stylistically minimal, our theatre never underestimates the audience’s intelligence. They are proud to be associate artists at Camden People’s Theatre. | @Barrel_Organ | #LIVE7
