A mixed-bill of short and 'scratch' performances from some of the UK's most exciting artists. Featured acts include: Chris Brett Bailey, Fye & Foul, Trunk and Egg, Hunt & Mosinsky, and Be Gentle with Me by Ira Brand.
Be Gentle With Me by Ira Brand
This is a piece about being told that you are sick, and being told that you are well. A conversation with me, with you, with him, with doctors, and with death. It is also an experiment in the space between personal testimony and fiction, a messy use of autobiography and untruths.
This Is How We Die: B-Sides and Rarities by Christopher Brett Bailey
Christopher Brett Bailey reads off-cuts, alternate scenes and "b material" from his award-winning solo debut This Is How We Die. A fascinating insight into the creative process or a gross exercise in vanity?…You decide!
Cathedral by Fye and Foul
A woman holds a small cassette recorder. She is dreading to hear what is on that tape. When she presses play a voice appears, but is it talking to her? Inspired by Raymond Carver’s short story, Cathedral is an immersive sound-based performance held in low lights about memory and regret. How do we really remember events, others and ourselves? In this new short performance, Fye and Foul continues with their exploration of sound, darkness and extremes.

Sans Oeuf by Trunk and Egg
The show is an exploration into the lives of the ‘trunks’. How do these creatures go about the daily routine? How do they interact with one another and other potential creatures? How do they communicate? The trunks themselves are Ikea ‘STORM’ lampshades, a conical form which reverses and reopens out at the narrower end. This forms a face or snout-like formation, a sensory organ of some kind which guides the creature. Whether this ‘sensory organ’ is an eye, an ear, a mouth, a nose or even a sexual organ depends on the situation.
