Line-up for Big Bang #1:
Not in My Name by DBLD: Doubled Collective
Not in My Name is a performance currently in development. The performance is an abstract reaction to post Brexit Britain and the political world that we are now living in. By paying homage to the late Jimi Hendrix͛s performance of “The Star- Spangled Banner” at Woodstock we provide our own reaction to the rise of nationalism and mock patriotic themes such as ͚Rule Britannia͛. With themes of war, sex, western ignorance and politics, Not in My Name is a surreal, rebellious and multi- disciplinary performance.
La Petite Bouffe by Margriet Kim Nguyen
Inspired by the characteristics of Marco Ferreri͛s movie La Grande Bouffe, the performance La Petite Bouffedraws on the phenomenon of competitive eating contests. This experimental piece unravels an insight of a spaghetti competition in which two female performers are competing while being tight to several etiquette rules and directed by a voice-over.
Sheryl Talks Obesity by Ships in the Night
With Ships in the Night, Sheryl makes work in a solo capacity and as part of collaborative processes, in response to contemporary society underpinned by the question: what are the things happening right now that in ten, twenty, a hundred years’ time that we will wish we had interrogated more?
VOID by The S+K Project
VOID is an exploration of the soul’s anatomy. This striking piece of new writing by Birmingham-based writer Rumi Woolf breaks boundaries of form, linearity and storytelling in a unique participatory experience, bringing to the forefront issues of human need, desire, obligatory love, and the addictive nature of Tesco meal deals.
