The line-up:

Wednesday 6th June:

Vote for Me (Here’s Why) by Richard Kingdom

From shouting at the radio to social media witch hunts, our rage dials are cranked to 11, flattening out narratives to support our fuming indignation.  In this context, we’re quick to deify or condemn our politicians, usually knowing which it’ll be before they’ve opened their mouths.  MPs names alone are enough to elicit strong responses of solidarity or disgust; Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn, Caroline Lucas…

In Vote for Me (Here’s Why), two charismatic gurus deliver a soaring mega-mix of political rhetoric.  Can we still spot our opponents when their words run into those of our heroes?

Performed by Richard Kingdom and Chinwe Nwokolo.

Hyper-Ballad by David Levesley

Monica Suarez’s first job out of college is at a tech company, keeping obscene videos off the site. But when a woman is killed on camera at a protest, the team are offered a choice: be a part of a revolution half a world away, or follow their own rules.

Hyper-Ballad takes a look into the teams of people who keep the internet looking utopian, and what happens when the public learns there are humans who control what they watch: what cost are we willing to pay for the things we get for free on the internet? And what sacrifices do people make when they sit between us and the darkness beyond?

Big Cat (I know What I Saw) by Tara Robinson & Steven Bloomer

You know what you saw, but no one believes you. What next?

Every year thousands of people report seeing panthers, pumas and lynxes in the UK countryside, and yet the authorities insist these creatures do not exist. Big Cat (I Know What I Saw) is a journey into the heart of a modern-day mystery, guided by unreliable experts, conspiracy theorists, amateur trackers and the slippery nature of childhood memory.

From theatre makers Tara Robinson ( Gutted, My Body Welsh ) and Steven Bloomer ( Boiling Frogs, I Gotta Be Me ), comes a playful new piece that will leave you tickled and intrigued, with a new perspective on the UK’s natural landscape and questioning just how much to trust what you’ve been told.
