Body Not Fit For Purpose

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion

Burrows and Fargion have been invited around the world with their unique brand of humour and intellectual rigour.

Body Not Fit For Purpose is their first overtly political work, commissioned by the 2014 Venice Biennale and taking as its starting point the uselessness of dancing to express anything of any real concern and at the same time the inherent, gloriously foolish radicality of the attempt.

Running time: 30 minutes

Body Not Fit For Purpose is commissioned by the Venice Biennale and supported with public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion are co-produced by Kaaitheater Brussels, PACT Zollverein Essen, Sadler's Wells Theatre London and BIT Teatergarasjen Bergen.
The two men are currently in-house artists at the Nightingale, Brighton England and would like to thank also Canon Richard Moatt and St Anne's Church Lewes, Sue MacLaine and Nicki Jackowska.

There's a beguiling mix of the scholarly, the quizzical and the righteously indignant that is unique to Fargion and Burrows...the concentration of their work demonstrates how much expressive power even a small gesture, a tiny variation of tone or rhythm, can possess

Judith Mackrell on Body Not Fit For Purpose, The Guardian London, 23rd June 2014

...occasionally feeling gloomy during some performance or other, I’ve wished that a fed- up theater goblin would whisk away the show I’m watching and deposit Burrows and Fargion in its place.

PREVIEW: The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha

Little Soldier Productions in association with Jackson’s Lane

The young company behind the highly praised, award-winning You and Me (2013) are joined by a flamenco guitarist to perform the whole of Cervantes’ masterpiece. Directed by Ian Nicholson, the two Spaniards of Little Soldier are joined on stage by Told By An Idiot associate artist Stephen Harper to re-enact one of the most influential works of world literature.

Their mammoth task would be easier if any of the following were true: they’d read the book, had enough actors or heeded the warnings of Terry Gilliam. The production follows the style of Little Soldier’s Brighton Fringe run and national tours of You and Me, a bitter-sweet physical comedy about dementia, and growing old away from home. Here, the company contrast the intimate with the epic, with Little Soldier’s combination of languages with live music and physical comedy, presenting an imaginative and provocative adventure of immense proportions, to be taken with a pinch of salt (and a handlebar moustache).

Part of the Nightingale off-site programme, this performance will be at THE MARLBOROUGH THEATRE.

Crime and Casualty

Katie Duck and Alfredo Genovesi with guest performer Charlie Morrissey

Crime and Casualty is a performance which is created as it happens by Katie Duck and Alfredo Genovesi: two virtuosic improvisers performing here in the UK from Amsterdam. The theme: Crime and Casualty was conceived by Katie Duck, and is an ironic comment on the criminal behavior that today allows for rank mercantile opportunism, and the damage that results. Katie Duck’s acclaimed performances are highly charged performance adventures in which anything might happen.

American born dancer Katie Duck has been making performance since the early 1970’s. She is a seminal figure of the international improvisational performance scene, inspiring generations of performance makers. Her continuing collaborations with world-class musicians forms a central part of her working approach. She is a true original and a maverick who has carved out her own unique and uncompromising path in the dance world through a 40 year career.

Running time 60 minutes

Part of the Nightingale's off-site programme, this performance will be at THE BASEMENT

Duck's sturdy purposefulness makes even her most arbitrary actions seem part of a life-and-death odyssey

Judith Mackrell The Guardian

Katie Duck is the Zorba the Greek of improvisation: earthy, feeling every mode of sensuality, preposterous, irresistible, polymorphously perverse. Watching her dance is like watching her body think

HOST

Tim Crouch

For Brighton Fringe 2014 we are proud to present Host, a new, off-site “relay performance” written by acclaimed Brighton playwright Tim Crouch.

Host is a free, one-on-one performance designed to be shared; passed from one person to another like a relay baton. It celebrates real-life connections in a digital age and reminds us that, wherever it happens, theatre is about people coming together. Pre-book your slot or walk up.

HOST is at the Bathing Machine venue, New Road on Fridays and Saturdays in May (3rd – 31st).
Performances run between 5-8pm and last approximately ten minutes.

A cleverly constructed one-on-one piece that takes place in a bathing hut becomes a chain of performances … analogue viral.
