Pop Magic Christmas!

Boogaloo Stu

Join the race for the Christmas Number One! Devised and hosted by flamboyant part-time pop-star and musical alchemist Boogaloo Stu, Pop Magic! is a theatre show which combines cabaret, pop music and audience participation with cutting-edge recording technologies and social network platforms, to create a fresh new genre of work that is essentially "reality theatre".

In just over one hour, audience members are given the opportunity to collectively write, record and produce their very own Christmas smash hit, complete with an accompanying lip-synched video, additionally featuring an assembled cast of participants performing a flashmob dance routine. Along the way, Stu reveals the modest but glittering highs and barrel-scraping lows of his own pop career and how pop music shaped his future career and forged his own desire to perform. The finished video is the promptly edited and uploaded to the internet; within hours the audience can watch, download and share the results of the show across a multitude of social media platforms. The result is a hilarious and fast-paced D.I.Y. version of the X-Factor!

Dress in your festive finery; bauble earrings optional.

In addition to his musical director James Wood and his videographer Jasmine Johnson, Stu will also be joined onstage by legendary dance troupe the Sparklemotion Showponies.

Parade

Macellerie Pasolini

Parade unfolds without words - a mother, a father and two teenage sons interact in a domestic environment: the actors elaborate the plot of their complex family love with natural movements combined with dance around a table and on white beds.

Macellerie Pasolini is a project based in Bologna, Italy, involving artists of all nationalities, disciplines and training working around the themes of contemporary culture. Parade is a performance entirely structured around body acts and sound, and looks at how certain dynamics define humans.

The situations of initial and welcoming warmth that suddenly turns into acid and cold transfiguration, are disorienting...

How To Disappear Completely And Never Be Found

presented by The Academy of Creative Training

"What makes you who you are, Charlie? A name? An address? A random collection of experiences, a few memories? You are who you can prove you are. You are what people think. And that's the easiest thing in the world to change."

When a young executive reaches breaking point and decides to disappear, she pays a visit to a master of the craft in a seafront fortune teller's in Southend. Haunted by visitations from a pathologist who swears she is already lying flat out on her slab, she begins to re-live the nightmarish final hours that see her body retrieved from the Thames, stripped of everything that made her who she was. With echoes of Camus and Kafka, this extraordinary new play by Fin Kennedy, and directed by Daniel Finlay, follows one person's desperate attempts to buck the system, and asks what really makes us who we are in the 21st century.

TouchedTheatre presents ‘PUNCHED’

A night of all new, home-grown Brighton puppetry for grown ups

Think you know puppetry? Think again.

Featuring new work from Yael Karavan (Karavan Ensemble), Annie Brooks & Joe Kenny, Isobel Smith (Grist to the Mill) and Matt Rudkin (Inconvenient Spoof), and hosted by Unpacked Theatre’s inimitable drag marionette, Miranda – the only member of the cast allowed to chainsmoke on the premises – this will be an unforgettable evening of Brighton’s newest and hottest puppet theatre.

This is puppetry by adults, for adults, with not a squeaky glove toy in sight. The genre-busting programme encompasses object animation, dance, visual installation and cabaret, all wrapped up as brand spanking new puppetry performance.

Now that’s what I call puppetry.
