Splintered

Breath in Mvmt

We split into fragments when faced with fear and the unknown. Every choice reaction determines the next and we can either feel solid on the ground we stand upon or succumb to the hole in the ocean floor. Come collect the pieces with us.

A lot can happen at thirteen. In this coming-of-age 'storied concert', Lara takes us back, with humour and heart, to a year that tested her mettle and taught her to face her fears, performing songs from 1980/81 (including Blondie, Billy Squier, Diana Ross, The Police & Tom Petty).

Quack

London Dance Ensemble

A satirical take on the ballet Swan Lake, using various dance styles.  "Quack" is a humorous interpretation of the well-known stereotypes associated with this classic, with a few unexpected surprises and an inventive musical score.  Fun for the whole family in this bizarre tale of the tragic swan.

Tragedy + Time Served = Comedy

Luddite's Rant

behindthewire productions
60min

The double-edged sword of technology. It feeds and it kills. Are you a Luddite? (Look it up.) Join our Busker on his messy street corner as he tries to straighten things out with songs, audience games and a penetrating look at our modern society.

The Cardboard Countess

urban spine
60min

A troubled teen. A homeless woman proclaiming she is a Countess. Which world do you want to live in:  A world where crowns are made out of garbage, or our modern society where humans value technology over humanity?

At times tragic, at times hilarious, the ongoing battle between these two characters, both fighting to be heard in an ever hostile world, is a play audiences of all ages can relate to.
