In any Sprint festival, there’s a dizzying mix of the brand new, the hot-off-the-press and the not-yet-finished, coming at you in all shapes and sizes. Our ‘Shape of Things to Come’ nights feature eye-catching works-in-progress alongside short but perfectly formed new shows. Put ‘em together in a triple-bill, and you get a Saturday night to remember: three artists, three performances, and blazing new ideas taking shape before your eyes.

Presented by Second Circle Theatre

“I just wanted to show you that life was going to carry on as normal, it wasn’t going to be any chaos or upset or anything like that… and I look back now and I just feel cross with myself for thinking I could do it in a non-hurtful way. In a way that you weren’t going to be damaged..” 

Flora and her sister Megan are making a show. It’s about their family. They’re scared of what you might think but they’re doing it anyway. Megan’s language hasn’t evolved like everyone else’s. So Flora decides to investigate and re-stage their parent’s divorce in order to help Megan get unstuck. Join them on a journey of bravery, self-discovery and fairy houses by the sea. Audiences should expect matching outfits, elaborate dance routines and the power of sisterhood – picking you up when you fall. 

Combining storytelling, movement and projection this work-in-progress performance examines what our parents mean to us and how this support structure shapes the people we are today. It explores the importance of family, the challenges of self-expression in a neurotypical world and the many ways in which we experience loss.  

Supported by Arts Council England, Cambridge Junction, TheatreDeli and Poplar Union.
