He's Dead - Marikiscrycrycry
26 - 27 November 2021, 8pm
Tickets: £10 / £7.50 concessions, book here
He’s Dead is a dark fantasy choreography that engages with the question ‘Was Tupac depressed?’ This question cannot be answered and so this conceptual group work uses dance, text, live action, and sound, at the juncture of darker schemas, atmospheres, and dramaturgies in order to shed tears for the things that we cannot unearth. Moving beyond the social framework of hope, He’s Dead works with undercurrent modes of meaning-production, utilising choreography as a tool and formal force for interrogating, in this case, im/possibility. The work proliferates marginal identifications and melancholic subjectivities as both a fantasy framework and as practises against dehumanisation.
REGNANT - Xavier de Sousa
27 November, 3-9pm
£20 whole show // £6 per hour slot // concessions available, book here
REGNANT is a new theatre performance, a dinner party with the guests diving into how we interact with each other within the context of migration and belonging. It is composed live with you, our guests, and patrons. Almost all the materials present on stage, from the pottery to the decoration and the food, have been created by hand for you.
As your hosts, we invite you to join us at the dinner table, get merry, make friends and explore structures of power within local communities and how they influence how we shape our collective future.
In REGNANT, Xavier expands the dinner-party setting of his previous show, POST, to think more broadly about collectivity, community and privilege within the performance space and in the development of the narrative itself. This performance will include a variety of local guests and co-performers, who will be turning up across the duration of the piece.
