In recent years, CPT's annual artist development / peer network scheme Starting Blocks has launched some of the UK's most exciting and talked-about theatre productions: Louise Orwin's Pretty Ugly, Rachel Mars' The Way You Tell Them, Emma Frankland & Keir Cooper's Don Quijote.
This year, six artists & companies have been developing brand new work over the last 10 weeks. Tonight, you can see the first fruits of each of their projects:
** Please note, Caretaker Ministry are presenting a drop-in performance in CPT's basement space from 5pm-10.30pm, and Venice as a Dolphin's performance is limited capacity – tickets are available first come first serve from 5.30pm. All other performances start from 6pm **
Paradis Fiscal presented by Caretaker Ministry (pictured)
Join us (well don’t quite join us) as we set off for a new world. A better world. A paradise. We’ve made it. We wish you were here.
We Choose to Go to the Moon presented by Cape Theatre
Two performers strive for perfection. How do they make an audience fall in love with them, the way John F Kennedy was once loved?
Iron M.A.M. presented by Owl Young
"I am a predator, I am a reaper, I am an avenger. I can end your world with the push of a button." Iron M.A.M. explores the undiscussed world of drone warfare and why Iron Man might just be the perfect metaphor.
Oh Baby presented by Rebecca Biscuit
A show about contraception, because contraception is bloody brilliant. Oh Baby is a brand new piece of work conceived for Starting Blocks 2015.
Public Radio presented by Venice as a Dolphin
Hello. This is public radio. You are the people. This is the radio. Any of you could be a victim. Any of you could be a killer. Pick a card. Choose your fate. Listen to the radio.
Kate presented by On the Run
Following the success of their debut show So It Goes, On The Run begin work on their next piece of autobiographical theatre. This time, a coming of age story about young love, punk music and trying to help someone get better. “This young company have a very bright future” – Daily Telegraph
