£8.50

Planet Earth III is a low-budget, one-man nature documentary set in a future where our worst predictions came true

Armed with obsolete office supplies and a surreal imagination, nature's weirdos are brought back to life by the "impressive, in a very bizarre way" (LondonTheatre1) clown Luke Rollason.

Post Clowning

Citizens of Nowhere

18th May, 21:30 (60 mins)

£8.50

‘Post-Clowning’ is a variety show with no allegiance to either contemporary or traditional clowning, using any stupid means possible to make the unthinkable digestible through self-ridicule. At once avant-garde and classical, grotesque and whimsical, with no aesthetic axes to grind.

 

Jon Davison’s production brings together an international bunch of Citizens of Nowhere to be what everyone knows clowns are: funny, stupid, ridiculous, chaotic laughter-objects for our entertainment.

 

And if you don’t laugh, they will apologise and leave the stage, having no creative agendas of their own, no pretensions to be recognised as artists.

Inda Pereda

19th May, 21:15 (50 mins)

£8.50

 

Inda Pereda's hilarious one-man show uses physical comedy, sound and mime to build a wild, imaginary dreamscape bound up in exciting, ridiculous and grotesque situations *ahem* emergency operations, unusual body musicals, the happy birth of mutant beings - and is populated by a host of crazy universal characters - *err* annoyed Japanese samurais and happy cows.

TRAPPED unlocks a place where surreal worlds converge with nonsense, where irreverent moments lead to trasnscendent beauty.

£7.50

When Jamie is still for any length of time, someone finds him and tells him about their life. His girlfriend says he is like a tree that dogs like to wee on. He gets that from his Grandfather.

Last year Jamie walked 150 miles back to where his grandparents were born to look for what he'd lost.

From the creator of O No! (★★★★ The Times) comes something else entirely. A dance party with ghosts, in a forest, in a theatre. An invitation to drink deep, to face the shadows that growl on your insides and laugh big.

You were raised to believe anything was possible. To never to settle for second best. Follow your heart. Now it's time to live the dream and you can't even get an interview for an unpaid internship.

Bouffon takes it's origins from medieval France. The disabled and mentally ill, exiled from the walled towns, were allowed back in once a year to mock the dearly held beliefs of the society that had shunned them

 

We invite you to witness our beautiful, disgusting Bouffon double act. An exhilarating, hilariously confrontational satire on the human condition.
