Weather is ingrained in many cultures as an extension of divine rule. As a life giver and taker, it directly connects and shapes ecosystems. While we’ll be exploring the chain of consequence, there will be a shift in the focus away from the flashy, the attention-grabbing, the short-term to the whole, the ambient, the long-term. You are invited to experience the interconnectedness between yourself and Force majeure, through audio signal networks processing real-time weather data.

Meet at AMATA Box Office at the start of your allotted time slot. Late comers may not be able to attend the experience, due to it taking place in the Walled Garden on the Penryn Campus.

Mesh: We live our lives surrounded by other people: strangers on the street, friends, lovers. Perhaps our sense of self is blurred by the relationships we maintain. If these were to vanish, we might start questioning our own identity. Do we truly know who we are, without the people around us?

Sara Cristina Silva, Nádia Salgueiro, Clara Peiro, Hope Noordally, Carmen Sorokopud, Linnea Marttila, Beatrice Montefusco, Maia Mcnulty

Sielos: Two souls. Together. We weave in and out of the vulnerabilities of a tender heart finding strength hidden in all the uncertain cells and fibres of our being. We celebrate what it means to dwell in the in-between moments, complexity, chaos and magic of our minds. Together, we explore the mystery, honesty, and intimacy of identity. Movement becomes our melody, our language and our resting place. Two souls. Together.

3 Winters by Tena Štivičić

Click Here to book online.

A portrait of an eclectic family, held together by the courage to survive.

In an ivy-clad house in Zagreb, Croatia, the Kos family argue and fall in and out of love as world after world is erected and then torn down around them.

From the remnants of monarchy, through Communism, then democracy, war, and eventual acceptance into a wider Europe, four generations of Kos women – each one more independent than the last – have to adapt to survive. The one constant is the house: built by aristocrats, partitioned, nationalised, it stands witness to the passing generations.

But when the family assemble for Lucija's wedding, Alisa learns that her nouveau-riche brother-in-law has bought the family home for himself and the other tenants have to move out. For the bride, this is progress, for her sister it's a shady act of greed. For their principled parents, finally, it's one battle too many.

This amateur production of ‘3 Winters’ is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.

It’s 1918. It’s 1968. It’s 2018. Ibsen’s tragic heroine is reimagined in three different time periods, their tales interweaving and overlapping.

Nora Helmer tries hard to be the perfect wife, the perfect mother, the perfect homemaker - but under the veneer she’s close to cracking. Finding herself at an impassable crossroad, Nora has a radical decision to make as secrets and lies tear at the seams, pulling apart everything she has ever known.

Over a century after A DOLL’S HOUSE shocked audiences with its stark portrayal of female married life, this searing adaptation by award-winning writer Stef Smith is rooted in the women’s rights movement, exploring how tightly bound women still are by social convention even as the world seemingly opens-up. This is a muscular domestic thriller that packs a punch - a battle cry, a roar, a ripple of hope.

Misri Dey: Family Tree | Preview Performance

Wednesday, 23 March, 2022 - 19:00

Misri Dey: Family Tree | Scratch Performance
Tickets: £3 + 'Pay What You Can'
Click Here to book online.

Join Misri Dey on a personal journey as she invites you to reconsider how we understand the notion of 'family'.

Through storytelling, humour, movement and song, Family Tree challenges our perceptions on migration, belonging and diasporic identities through the intimate stories of the brown, black and white people jostling for space within one family. Misri's new material encourages you to reflect on the experiences of multiple heritage communities and how the borders, privilege, and family histories we are all navigating shape who we are. Expect song, family secrets, lies and a horse.

This scratch show forms part of a devising phase where Misri is testing new ideas with live audiences. Audience members will have the opportunity to feedback their thoughts on the performance in a facilitated post-show discussion. Audience feedback will inform the development of the full show, to be toured around the South West later in 2022.

Misri Dey is a trained international theatre practitioner, now working as a Senior Lecturer in Theatre and Acting at Falmouth University, who has performed professionally in the UK, USA, and Europe. Since 2003, she has been creating solo work that explores diasporic identities for live theatre and radio. Arts participation and activism is also an important element to Misri’s work; she has worked with many youth and community organisations to broaden audiences of live performance and advocate for the importance of arts participation.

Family Tree is supported by Arts Council England | Age guidance 16+

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HEAR A REMARKABLE STORY?
WE PROMISE IT WILL ONLY BE A LITTLE BIT GORY…

We are two sisters, The Sisters Grimm.
One is quite clever and one is quite… musical.
Our tales are greater than any others,
But they were stolen by our beastly brothers!
Now we must journey to fix their lies…
Or else the birds will pluck out our eyes!

You know the Brothers Grimm? The famous storytellers…or story stealers more like! We the Grimm Sisters – Brunhilda and Mitzi – are the true brains behind the books, but thanks to a treacherous father, a nasty curse and a great big dollop of bad luck, you've probably never heard of us!

The Grimm Sisters are here to set the record straight. Join them on the journey as they tell their twisted tales with a marvellous mix of live music, singing & comedy. Dive headfirst into their weird world of poisonous parents, courageous quests and a magical frog called Jeremy (Jeremy is not to be trusted).

Keep your mind sharp and your guts gory, because in the blink of an eyelash, you might find yourself within the story…

Scratchworks is a female- led ensemble who create highly visual, playful theatre from Scratch. Since 2013 they have been creating original stories blending physical comedy, puppetry and live music.

Tickets: £12/£10 concessions

Three friends are getting ready for a night out, the music is intoxicating, they start to dance. It’s so good, they might stay a little longer…

DONUTS follows one night, separated over several years, in the life of a group of friends: how music connects them, feeds their friendship and their need to dance, until it becomes almost like a collective state of trance. It’s a celebration of all the times a night in is so much better than a night out.

DONUTS explores the dynamic way real friendship evolves over time, how the friendships in classic sit-coms can make you feel more like an outsider, and the way music and dance brings people together. Bursting with precision and soul, DONUTS is a hypnotic and playful groove along to jazz and funk.

Co-commissioned by The Place, DanceXchange, Warwick Arts Centre.
Co-produced by The Place. Supported by DanceXchange, Strike A Light, Phoenix Dance Theatre and Arts Council England.

Two souls inextricably linked. One, a tortured and tenacious genius. The other, a hideous creature made up from bits of other people’s bodies.

Yes, Howard and Stu are back for Living Spit’s unique take on Mary Shelley’s gruesome gothic horror, Frankenstein.

Geneva, Switzerland, 1823. Deeply affected by his mother’s untimely passing and the death of Greg, his pet hamster, undergraduate Victor Frankenstein comes up with a plan. Using all of his best science-y skills, he endeavours to conquer death, once and for all – by creating life itself! But will his creation be to his liking? Or has Victor unwittingly made a huge mistake.

With original music, preposterous puppets, grotesque gags and diabolically desperate dance-moves, this rib-ticklingly raucous monster of a show will leave you in stitches.

Humans share the planet with the new life force – technology. We ask: “What is the future of the human body in a world beset by inequality… as evolution/natural selection – is replaced by intelligent design?”

Surge is a stunningly visual, immersive dance performance, performed inside a digitally projected landscape to an evocative music score – a concept album live on stage from acclaimed electronic musician Ital Tek.

Prodigal Theatre: The Fight
Tickets: £10/£8 concessions

Friends, have you ever seen a fight?
If not, you have a pleasure to come…’

This year marks the 200-year anniversary of William Hazlitt publishing his classic essay ‘The Fight’ – a rip roaring ride into the belly of Georgian bloodsport that inspired a genre of journalism and stands as one of the great pieces of prose writing. But what has changed? In 1821 England had won a protracted conflict with Europe but struggled to win the peace. The rich were getting richer while the poor still starved. Disease stalked the land whilst protest was suppressed, and everywhere; nationalism was on the rise. A population caught between the promises of politicians and the harsh reality of economics sought much needed escape in spectacle… sound familiar?

Blending boxing with Hazlitt’s wit; texts contemporary and classic, performance-parkour, song, and the sweet science of defence, Prodigal set out to discover if – two centuries on – our sporting rivalries remain as tied to our national identities as ever.

Performed by Alister O’Loughlin and Sam Nancarrow.

Josephine Baker. The little girl from Missouri who became an original 20th century icon. Dancer, actor, activist, campaigner, spy and mother to the multicultural Rainbow  Tribe, Josephine broke the mould and high-kicked the pieces to the kerb.

But, almost 50 years after her death, Café Josephine, a down-at-heel New York diner dedicated to her memory, faces closure. Nobody remembers Josephine, who she was, what she did, what she stood for.
And she just can’t allow that.

With a sultry, Harlem Renaissance-inspired score, spring-heeled Charleston dancing and a hatful of historical figures, Josephine blurs the real with the imagined as we follow one woman’s incredible journey from the slums of St Louis via the bright lights of Paris and into the hearts of the world.

At the Brink (working title)

"I am a queer older woman returning to the art of performing, after 20 years working in academia. Early in 2021, I received an Arts Council research and development grant to work with choreographers Florence Peake, Heidi Rustgaard, Joseph Mercier and dramaturg Luke Pell.  I wanted to expand my choreographic experience, test ways of being present in performance and explore starting points for a new solo show. Through these artist collaborations a range of material has emerged such as – the creation of a clay foot, dancing to Donna Summers, performing the role of a psychotherapist and immersing myself in queer-Butoh-grunge! These starting points for performance have been documented by film-maker Roswitha Cheshire.  In discussion with Sue I will show video material, discuss ideas emerging from the research process and explore how I envisage the work developing into a solo show for 2022." Dr Emilyn Claid

Emilyn is an independent dance artist performer and an emeritus professor at University of Roehampton. She is also a Gestalt psychotherapist. Emilyn’s career stretches back to the 1960s when she was a dancer with National Ballet of Canada and the 1970s when she was co-founder of X6 Dance Space in London. In the 1980s she was artistic director of Extemporary Dance Theatre and in the 1990s choreographed for companies such as Phoenix and CandoCo while creating solo shows for international touring. She recently published FALLING Through Dance and Life, (Bloomsbury 2021), a book about performance that re-thinks our physical and metaphorical relationship to gravity through psycho-somatic, gender and queer philosophical frames.

Almost as old as the oldest civilisation is the myth of the flood. The story of a few who survive the waters through Devine intervention, and the help of a boat… but the flood we face is not a myth, and we have no one to save us but ourselves…

Commissioned by the Time & Tide Bell organisation; The UPG Team bring their distinctive performance-parkour language together with a vessel made of scaffold and a story told by a child to ask, in the face of rising sea levels, how we avoid having to choose who gets on the boat?

On the Strandline is performed by the Emergent Ensemble - a group of five early career performers brought together in the time of Covid to survive the industry lockdown.

This is Sian Clarke's ode to every man who has belittled her, made her feel unsafe, objectified her, told her she can't be funny, called her a slut, told her to smile more.

A comedic piece using a dark, twisted mixture of aggression, laughter and discomfort to examine the constraints of a woman biting back in a society eager to silence and vilify those no longer willing to accept its bullsh*t.
Either that
Or a show about a woman who just needs to learn to take a joke

A Mr and Mrs Clark Production: Louder Is Not Always Clearer | Online Live Stream Performance
Tickets: £8 full price/£5 students
Click Here to book online.

Jonny is a teacher, a workshop leader and an avid football fan. He’s just become a father. His friends say that he’s outgoing and that he loves music, festivals and nightclubs. Jonny is deaf. He was born deaf to hearing parents who were afraid that disability would stigmatise their son and the family.

Louder Is Not Always Clearer is an honest portrayal of the vulnerability of a deaf man, created and performed by a deaf man. For a hearing audience it is an illuminating and emotional experience. For deaf audience members the show is a familiar tale of misunderstanding and isolation. For all audiences it is a humorous and at times moving story of one man’s attempt to cope, to fit in and be accepted.

Mr and Mrs Clark make new and thought-provoking performances that engage and entertain audiences. The Clarks were short-listed for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award in 2015 and presented (F.E.A.R.) as part of Wales in Edinburgh in 2017.

Supported by Arts Council England, the Rural Touring Dance Initiative (RTDI) and Carn to Cove.

Dance maker and performer Amy and visual artist and performer Hetain collaborated on Amy's awarding winning dance piece The Forecast. With the world a different place since they worked on it together and as Amy prepares to tour it again, Amy and Hetain reflect on being an artist now and what drew them together in the first place - their approaches to the way race, gender and sexuality are inscribed or rewritten in the body. The Forecast casts ironic look at our attempts to foresee our futures, an idea that resonates with new power now in a time of such unpredictability. Amy and Hetain share their questions about what comes next.

Prodigal Theatre: The Fight | Online Live Stream Performance
Tickets: £8 full price/£5 students

‘Friends, have you ever seen a fight? If not, you have a pleasure to come…’

This winter marks the 200 year anniversary of William Hazlitt publishing his classic essay ‘The Fight’ - a rip roaring ride into the belly of Georgian bloodsport that inspired a genre of journalism and stands as one of the great pieces of prose writing. But what has changed?

In 1821 England had won a protracted conflict with Europe, but struggled to win the peace. The rich were getting richer and the poor still starved. Disease stalked the land whilst protest was suppressed, and everywhere; nationalism was on the rise. A population caught between the promises of politicians and the harsh reality of economics sought much needed escape in spectacle… sound familiar?

Blending boxing with Hazlitt’s wit; texts contemporary and classic, performance parkour, song, and the sweet science of defence - Prodigal set out to discover if - two centuries on - our sporting rivalries remain as tied to our national identities as ever.

‘Whatever Prodigal does is worth seeing.’ The Irish Independent

From Prodigal Theatre, the team behind the multi-award winning Tragedian Trilogy.

Supported by Arts Council England, Hall for Cornwall & Creative Civic Change

Written by Alister O’Loughlin after William Hazlitt, Pierce Egan et al.
Direction & Dramaturgy by Miranda Henderson
Regency Pugilism training & additional choreography by Chris Chatfield
Performed by Elijah Holloway & Alister O’Loughlin

Impermanence: BAAL by Bertolt Brecht

Impermanence: BAAL by Bertolt Brecht
Tickets: Pay what you can
Click Here to book online.

Online Screening of Filmed Performance

In this ground-breaking dance-theatre adaptation of Bertolt Brecht’s first play – we follow BAAL, our anti-hero, along a path of consumption, greed and ultimate destruction. Described as ‘a bonkers ballet’ and ‘designer grotesque’, the four dancers grapple with love, sexuality, art, fame, betrayal, nature and lust.

As scenes of matadors, landladies, ghosts, circus animals, dinner parties and forests unfurl, audiences are drawn deeper into a kaleidoscopic world of surreal images, extreme physicality and high drama. Dark humour, intricate choreography and beautiful poetry combine in this stunning, cathartic, multi-media production, featuring a dual channel film with live music and lusciously designed costumes and set.

CONTENT TO CONSIDER:
Recommended age: 14+
Running time: 55 minutes

Counting the Music Industry
Tickets: Free, but booking required
Click Here to book online.

Counting the Music Industry is a presentation and talk by music industry consultant and campaigner Vick Bain.

The research is a gender gap analysis of over 300 music publishers and record labels in the UK. This research reveals that just over 14% of writers currently signed to publishers and just under 20% of acts signed to labels are female. This gap is surprisingly large and is indicative of widespread discrimination against women in the music industry.

Counting the Music Industry also looks at entry routes into music, particularly through formal education. There has been increased participation by girls and women in music education at all levels over the past five years, to near equity, often gaining better results than their male counterparts. And yet female graduates do not seem to be as successful as their male colleagues in starting careers. This report looks at twelve barriers that exist for women wishing to start and sustain a career in music. Vick is the former CEO of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors, fully qualified diversity and inclusion consultant and Featured in BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour Music Powerlist.

Tickets: £12/£10 concessions
Click Here to book online.

ONE is the third and final part of a trilogy of work exploring power dynamics and political themes on a micro, human level.

Following Eurohouse and the Total Theatre Award-winning Palmyra, Bert and Nasi return to AMATA with ONE. It’s about polarisation, it’s about the left and the right. It’s also about two people who need to fix an awful, toxic relationship.

ONE is a painful conversation, either late at night or the early morning, in which neither side can bring themselves to just leave the room.

Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas’s work is stripped back to say the least: the shows shouldn’t be interesting, but the way they play with humour, brutality, and their ability to turn the mood of a room on a sixpence has resonated with audiences across the world.

They are, to my mind, one of the most exciting prospects in British theatre. Matt Trueman, Whatsonstage

****This wonderfully playful, intimate and ultimately moving show… Constantly pits idealism against self-interest and pragmatism. Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Body of Memory
Tickets: Free but booking required
Click Here to book online.

Body of Memory is an improvised dance performance which unfolds in dialogue with the live decision-making of Tools that Propel, an interactive video installation and choreographic development system co-developed by Sarah Levinsky and Adam Russell.

Body of Memory is a moment in time in a research project: an invite to look at and through our looking glass. It is also a folding of past and present and a curious, playful exploration of memory: in our bodies, in our extended (human-computational) bodies, and in the (re)performance of dance. Body of Memory is built from a series of questions. Some of them might be: what is memory, whose memory, our memory, its memory, the memory of and in this architectural, technological, computational, fleshy, moving, material, immaterial, choreographic meeting?

This piece has been created as part of Sarah Levinsky’s PhD practice-based research in collaboration with Tools that Propel, dancers Yi Xuan Kwek, Maria Evans, Zach McCullough and Euan Hastings, lighting improviser Jess Smith, and composer/sound designer Matthew Collington. We'd love you to come and experience it. (Please note there is no seating and it lasts approximately 45 minutes.)

Dancers: Laura Malam, Isobel Bridge, Tia Hurman, Georgia Aiken, Robyn Alvarez, Charlotte Brown, Afroditi Epifaniou

Body of Memory | Wednesday 18 September 2019

Wednesday, 18 September, 2019 - 16:00

Body of Memory
Tickets: Free but booking required
Click Here to book online.

Body of Memory is an improvised dance performance which unfolds in dialogue with the live decision-making of Tools that Propel, an interactive video installation and choreographic development system co-developed by Sarah Levinsky and Adam Russell.

Body of Memory is a moment in time in a research project: an invite to look at and through our looking glass. It is also a folding of past and present and a curious, playful exploration of memory: in our bodies, in our extended (human-computational) bodies, and in the (re)performance of dance. Body of Memory is built from a series of questions. Some of them might be: what is memory, whose memory, our memory, its memory, the memory of and in this architectural, technological, computational, fleshy, moving, material, immaterial, choreographic meeting?

This piece has been created as part of Sarah Levinsky’s PhD practice-based research in collaboration with Tools that Propel, dancers Yi Xuan Kwek, Maria Evans, Zach McCullough and Euan Hastings, lighting improviser Jess Smith, and composer/sound designer Matthew Collington. We'd love you to come and experience it. (Please note there is no seating and it lasts approximately 45 minutes.)

Jim Carey and The Saboteurs presents: Riots and Lobsters: Gala Performance with Special Guests
Tickets: £15/£12 concessions
SOLD OUT. CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE WAITING LIST.

Audiences will be enthralled by a unique evening of music first created for plays including Ting Tang Mine, The Bogus, The King of Prussia, and The Riot, toured nationally by Kneehigh in the 1990s. All the music has been re-imagined and arranged by the original composer Jim Carey, and played by his 8-piece multi-instrumentalist band, The Saboteurs. This special Gala
Performance also features the St Kerverne Band and a Community Choir. 

We’ll travel on a musically diverse, story rich journey from America to Cornwall, telling tales of riots and lobsters, fishermen and miners, corrupt officials and power-driven politicians, pioneers, saboteurs, love and redemption, of course not forgetting the classic yarn about the stomach of a horse that lands on someone’s head!

These diverse and poignant songs easily cross stylistic boundaries, sometimes folk songs, sometimes ska or swing. Over the course of one fantastic evening lyrical laments, ballads and brass will all tell the stories and bring to life the worlds created by Darke & Carey.

‘What kind of a musical is this?!’

Tremough Follies are proud to present Urinetown (Yoor’in toun).

Yes, that really is the name of the show. Urinetown is a three time Tony Award-winning satirical musical comedy that premiered in 2001 and has since received 5-star reviews at London’s Apollo Theatre.

If you’ve ever been caught changeless at a public loo then this show is for you.

America, the not too distant future. A 20-year drought has led to a terrible water shortage nationwide, with a government-enforced ban on private toilets. Citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amongst the throngs, a hero plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

With music performed by a live orchestra, this is an irreverently humorous satire where no one is safe. Modern, outrageous and totally wicked – be prepared to laugh until your bladder bursts!

Tickets: £12/£10 concessions

This entertaining drama is an insightful, moving, funny and inspirational take on the interconnected worlds of women, science and space travel.

Renowned space scientist Maggie Hill recently launched a career-defining mission to find habitable planets. It didn't go well. Shortly afterwards, her girlfriend stopped speaking to her. She's going to have to address both of these catastrophes. Maggie is giving a lecture about her career, to inspire young women to work in science. She's also attending her first therapy session, in which she's at pains to state how her bipolar disorder isn't relevant to the conversation. The spaces overlap as we begin to build a picture of Maggie's greatest achievements and biggest regrets.
LIGHTS! PLANETS! PEOPLE! is an intimate and exhilarating story about communication, both interpersonal and intergalactic. Brave, funny, tough and beautiful writing. The Guardian

Tribe// Still I Rise
Tickets: £14/£11 concessions
Click Here to book online.

Still I Rise, the debut work by TRIBE// is a call to arms, a defiant and uplifting work danced by a female cast. Raw and emotive dance is combined with Victoria Fox’s powerful yet articulate movement style. The work channels the resilient, unapologetic nature of Maya Angelou’s poem. It’s unflinching, relentless hope for the human spirit binds this visceral dance work together. From pounding beats to stirring classical arias the music drives the dancers onwards. Falling down, gathering up… we rise.

‘I have a desire to see female dancers really owning the stage, to take the space. Raw and physical, subtle yet extreme, I want to see women enable each other and represent the full range of their strengths, virtuosic to vulnerable, the realities in which we live and the journey we continue.’ Victoria Fox

A contemporary dance company that packs some punch. culturised.com

Packed with both physical invention and emotional intensity.

Very beautiful and cinematic...like in Handmaids Tale – you've got to hold on to the last fragment of hope, that there's a way out, a hope of change. Audience member

‘Bellatrix is the charismatic, unpredictable, genre bending maverick you didn’t know you needed in your life’, wrote DUMMY when the quirky young artist released her debut EP Real Stuffed Owls mid-2017. Citing influences from Bjork to Sun Ra, Bellatrix has delivered a blisteringly inventive body of work that won her serious acclaim from tastemaker artists and critics alike, along with airplay on BBC R6MUSIC, BBC R1, SOHO RADIO and AMAZING RADIO.

A professional musician by trade, earning her living as a double bassist, Bellatrix’s interest lies heavily in live performance. In August 2017 she received funding from Arts Council England to create her live show. The result was a highly engaging, multi-sensory performance and string of sell-out headline shows with storming feedback from the music industry and fans alike. Her second EP, ‘Bad Dancing’ was funded by the prestigious PRSF Women Make Music fund and released in 2018.

The London flatmates combine introspective lyrics with gorgeous harmonies and memorable melodies. The Observer

IDER’s Mellow Pop Sums Up the Confusion of Being in Your Twenties. Noisey ‘You’ve Got Your Whole Life Ahead Of You Baby’ is another snapshot into their tender tones and intimate instrumentals that drive their magical sound. The Line of Best Fit

Produced by MyRiot, IDER’s latest single Mirror arrives right off the back of summer release You’ve Got Your Whole Life Ahead Of You Baby, which has already eclipsed 3,000,000 streams on Spotify alone since its release in late July. Mirror is IDER’s breakup anthem, a journey which begins in the loss of self-identity felt after splitting with a partner, but ends in a triumphant celebration of personal strength; all tied together by the quintessential IDER signatures – heavenly laced-together harmonies, pulsating beats and dreamy delicate guitar riffs. Like YGYWLAOYB, Mirror is a result of recording sessions for the band’s debut album – slated for 2019 – with MyRiot (Mirror) and Rodaidh McDonald (YGYWLAOYB) – renowned for his work with Adele, Sampha and The xx to name but a few. The single received its world premiere on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show and is now available across all streaming platforms.

The well-loved story The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry, is retold using Protein’s mix of humour, dance and music, encouraging us to look at the world through our hearts and reconnect with the child that’s in us all.

Along the way he encounters a lone pilot stranded in the desert and together they discover the power of friendship and the complexity of love.

One of the most distinctive voices in British dance theatre, Luca Silvestrini’s Protein has used a blend of original choreography, text, humour and music to entertain and provoke audiences since 1997. Protein’s shows connect theatrical experiences with the everyday and real-life stories that engage audiences and participants in both on-and-off stage productions.

Silvestrini’s magical world of The Little Prince is interpreted by costume and set designer Yann Seabra (May Contain Food, Stepmother/Stepfather), lighting designer Jackie Shemesh (Border Tales, Juliet and Romeo) and composer Frank Moon (The Little Match Girl). Protein’s cast is Faith Prendergast as The Little Prince, Jack Sergison, Andrew Gardiner and Donna Lennard.

Taking the late-60’s Beckenham ‘Arts Labs’ which David Bowie was involved in as their inspiration, the Bowie Lounge perform a selection of his songs combined with readings, poetry, dance and live art and photography and will stage their latest show, ‘Time’ at AMATA on Saturday 1 December.

The result of this concoction of creativity is a unique celebration of a man who inspired so many people over the years, performed by a company of exceptional Cornish-based musicians and artists.

First performed in 2013 and updated in light of Bowie’s death in 2016, both times to great acclaim, the Bowie Lounge seeks to engage people with David Bowie’s words and music in a way unlike any other show; this is not a tribute band, but definitely a moving and exhilarating homage to perhaps the greatest rock star of his or any other era.

“Thematically inventive, boundary blurring theatre, building on, rather than retreading, David Bowie's legacy.” David Bowie Glamour - The Fanzine

“This isn't just some karaoke tribute band. What they do is way beyond that. Movement, dance, theatre, poetry. The performances of the songs are simply exquisite, and the choice of numbers immaculately judged...The Bowie Lounge deserves to be huge. Do see them when you can.” Nicholas Pegg, Author of the Complete David Bowie

‘A strange and wonderful experience, The Bowie Lounge blends music, painting, theatre and dance to create something which is joyful, melancholic and really rather moving. I absolutely loved it.’ Mark Kermode, BBC Film Critic

“Alternating moments of devastating melancholy and joyous celebration.” Kirsty Newton (Cornwall Today)
“the best music event Cornwall has seen in 2016” Lee Trewhela, The West Briton

Richard Chappell: At The End We Begin
Tickets: £14/£11 concessions
Click Here to book online.

Taking inspiration from T.S. Eliot’s classic Four Quartet’s Burnt Norton, East Coker, The Dry Salvages and Little Gidding, At The End We Begin will be four compelling quartets of dance based on each poem.

Stemming from his experiences of classical ballet, contemporary dance, martial arts and improvisation, Devon born Richard’s powerful and full bodied choreographic language will be combined with emerging composer Samuel Hall’s score of piano and cello to create a thrilling and arresting response to Eliot’s timeless poetry. 

At The End We Begin has been developed during a five week residency in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at the newly opened Studio Wayne McGregor, through the company’s first ever FreeSpace Program. With dramaturgy by Neus Gil Cortes and costume design by costume design Hannah Taylor, At The End We Begin is Richard Chappell Dance’s most challenging and collaborative work to date. 

Richard Chappell – choreographer, performer and producer says:
‘As a body of poetry I am fascinated by Eliot’s perspective of time and creativity during Four Quartet’s. As Eliot wrote Four Quartet’s looking back towards the end of his at his creative life, I find his reflective language enthralling, as a young artist looking forward.

Forming in 2013, Richard Chappell Dance has already created a large impact on the British dance scene. The creation and touring of At The End We Begin has been funded by Arts Council England, The Linbury Trust, Pavilion Dance South West and has been commissioned by the Pegasus Theatre, Oxford.

RSVP are spearheading the renaissance of live Bhangra in the UK, opening doors for other artists and introducing Bhangra to mainstream audiences for the first time. From massive stages at Glastonbury (over 10 years) and Womad to concert venues across the UK and Europe, they’re always guaranteed to get even the most reluctant on their feet and leave audiences breathless with excitement.

RSVP Bhangra’s unique blending of Punjabi Indian music with dance beats and mainstream pop has created a new and irresistible sound that audiences everywhere love and keep on coming back for.  Is it Dildar’s melodious voice and charismatic stage-presence, Judge’s deliciously engaging interactive involvement with the audience or perhaps Jeevan’s insistent dhol drumbeats – or even Cris and Puggy’s sharp rhythmic underscore that does it?  Who knows?  The resulting effect, however achieved, is immediately involving, compulsive and extremely addictive!

Every show comes with an introduction to Bhangra dance – everyone’s included with RSVP’s emphasis on partying Punjabi style. With musicians wholly rooted in an authentic living tradition, yet unafraid to innovate, this is the ultimate celebratory Indian music.

Catch this “compelling and accomplished” evening of dance-theatre from a choreographer with a “distinctive narrative voice" - The Guardian. With a rapidly-growing reputation for creating emotionally-arresting dance-theatre works, Wayne Parsons Dance presents a sensitive and rousing double bill exploring the theme of memory, featuring spell-binding choreography, new writing, specially-commissioned music and stage design. 

The touching duet, Meeting, sees a couple navigate the retelling a shared memory. Vestige, a collaboration with writer Ankur Bahl, is based on the life of a fictional celebrity named Livia. Fan-girl archivist Suki, needy portrait artist Cath and jealous biographer and ex-husband Killian all share their differing accounts of Livia as she weaves her way through their memories.

Volcano Theatre: Macbeth - Director's Cut
Tickets: £15/£12 concessions
Click Here to book online.

A Radical Classic™ from Volcano

For the second time in its career, Volcano re-invents Shakespeare’s pacy, eloquent tragedy; this time with a new generation of outstanding performers.

"Volcano by name, volcanic by nature, the Swansea company's psycho serial-killer drama smashes down theatre's fourth wall, [...] moving in and out of Shakespeare's script in a night of sound and fury signifying plenty."

This is an arresting, untraditional Shakespeare with powerful performances, striking design and sensory surprises! We have stripped back action and character to zoom in on the dynamics of the killer couple, tracking their murderous ambitions, escalating anxieties and disintegrating bonds against a backdrop of sensual pleasure and normalized violence. The setting walks an uneasy line between the regal and the domestic, exposing an austere brutality underpinning the noble pretensions of personal and political power. Expect a boisterous, playful Macbeth with ribald humour and a muscular undertow of menace. This production is ideal for anyone interested in both the play itself and in contemporary performance techniques.

"The extreme theatre of Brecht, agit-prop, Kneehigh and Ken Campbell, as well as Oliver Stone's swaggering 1995 movie Natural Born Killers, all come to mind in Volcano's Macbeth, shaking up Shakespeare with dark humour and theatrically anarchic relish."

Suitable for ages 14 and over.

Proto-type Theater: The Audit (or Iceland, A Modern Myth)

Proto-type Theater: The Audit (or Iceland, A Modern Myth)
Tickets: £15/£12 concessions
Click Here to book online.

There’s a shadow coming, across the sea. Long and terrifying. The vultures are circling, the wolves are howling… how can we weather this storm?

The global economy is a mess. The crash has landed, the tide’s swept out, and it’s taken our hope with it. There’s less in our pockets and more to be spent. The rich have got richer, the middle’s squeezed tight, and the poor are being dragged ever downwards.

With the true value of money and the human cost of greed firmly in their sights, Proto-type Theater tell the story of how a nation raised their voices in protest and railed against the currents.

Using original text, performance, film, music and animation, THE AUDIT is about finding strength, overcoming a world designed to keep us docile, and how collective power can move a mountain – even if only a little.

THE AUDIT is Proto-type’s second theatrical work examining contemporary politics, following A Machine they’re Secretly Building, a “smartly intelligent hour-long whizz through the world of surveillance” (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian)

“They are not holding back in the slightest. They are out to expose: inequality, corruption, injustice, greed, borrowing, dishonesty, market manipulation, insider trading, fraud, tax evasion, and the frustration, anxiety, and uncertainty of the public. They can and they will name and shame.” – The Reviews Hub

“The brilliance of Proto-type’s approach is to engage, inform and entertain… they exude warmth and wit. The clarity and insight here allows for the telling of a modern horror story of greed that resonates with age old folk stories that we should not forget.” – Live Art Alive

**** “The kind of theatre that seeps into the sub-conscious.” – The List
**** “This is coolly reasoned theatre, produced by Proto-type Theater with stylish aplomb.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Bertrand Lesca & Nasi Voutsas: PALMYRA
Tickets: £15/£12 concessions
Click Here to book online.

PALMYRA is an exploration of revenge and what we consider to be barbaric.

From Bert and Nasi, the violent clowning duo behind the critically acclaimed dark comedy about the EU (EUROHOUSE), PALMYRA invites you to step back from the news and look at what lies beneath – and beyond – civilisation.

Following an extended, unanimously-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe and tour of Spain with BEST OF BE 2017, Bert & Nasi’s Total Theatre Award-winning, ‘weird, wonderful and strangely stressful’ PALMYRA (★★★★ The Stage) returns.

The ancient city of Palmyra was one of the best preserved in the world. Tourists flocked to visit the iconic temples of Bel and Baalshamin as well as the Arch of Triumph. Palmyra has changed hands throughout history, from the Roman Empire in the first century to the recent ISIS occupation.

WINNER Total Theatre Award for Innovation, Experimentation & Playing with Form 2017
WINNER Stockholm Fringe Festival 2017 Grand Prix
Selected in Lyn Gardner's Top 10 theatre of 2017.

'The duo who created Eurohouse shift from comic to tragic in a brilliant piece that reflects on Syria and the breakdown of relationships' ★★★★ The Guardian

Developed with support from Croquis_BCN (Barcelona), Bristol Ferment, MAYK, Tobacco Factory Theatres, Nuffield Southampton Theatres, Ovalhouse and HOME. Research and development of PALMYRA supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

How can ideas around disagreement, frustration, hatred and reconciliation be used on stage to create a space for artistic and political negotiation? How do we prioritise simplicity when talking about very complex matters? Research, discussions, improv and loud music (probably ABBA) to follow.
Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas (France/UK) have been working together since 2015 and are the creators of EUROHOUSE
(Edinburgh Fringe/National Tour 2016/17) and PALMYRA, which won a BE FESTIVAL award last year.

‘Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past’
George Orwell

Not Today’s Yesterday is an International collaboration between UK award-winning Bharatanatyam artist Seeta Patel and Australian choreographer Lina Limosani. This multi-award winning show blends techniques from Bharatanatyam, contemporary dance and theatre to create a poetic narrative that has the beauty and disquiet of a Grimm’s fairytale. It is a one-woman show which subversively co-opts whitewashing against itself.

Once upon a time… in a faraway land… it happened… did not happen… could have happened.

Supported by Chats Palace, Arts Council England, Country Arts SA, Arts SA, The Place London, Adelaide Fringe Artists Fund, LWD Dance Hub, British Council, The Bench UK and NA POMORSKIEJ Artist residency.

This performance features a post-show discussion

‘...The interplay of Patel’s classical form with Limosani’s contemporary choreography makes a perfect partnership for the telling of this old/new tale.’ BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

Tacita Dean: Event for a Stage
Tickets: Free, no booking required
Opening hours: 10.00 till 17.00 | Film duration: 50 minutes

Tacita Dean’s 16mm film Event for a Stage (2015) will be presented over four days at AMATA.

Originally commissioned as a live performance over four consecutive nights for the 2014 Sydney Biennial, it was Dean’s first foray into theatre and her first experience of working with an actor. What resulted was a fierce interplay between the artist and the actor Stephen Dillane as they struggled to understand and accommodate each other’s disciplines. Dean filmed each of the four nights as part of the performance and reworked the footage to explore the interplay between reality and fiction that theatre is built around.

Presented as part of the Groundwork Art Programme: groundwork.art

Forte’s 1973 publication The Structure of Atonal Music provides the foundations for this Set- Theoretical exploration. The third piece of Schoenberg’s Drei Klavierstücke - Bewegte, will be the seemingly harmonically-unruly subject. Not only will the presentation provide interest to the regular post-tonal listener, but may provide the casual listener an avenue into understanding the uses of Set-Theory in a post-tonal context. Yet, do the uses of Set-Theory may in fact branch out further than one expect..? This a truly unmissable event.

The Hansen’s gather at the family-owned country guest house to celebrate their father, Helge’s 60th birthday. In the wake of their sibling, Linda’s recent suicide, this celebration (‘festen’ in Danish) sees them determined to return to the good old days and be a happy family once again. But the birthday speeches reveal far more than anyone had bargained for. FESTEN is a roller-coaster ride into the heart of a taboo that might make you laugh at things you shouldn’t!
