two from a smith

a smith

Theatre maker Andy Smith brings a unique double bill of performances to The Nightingale. Using his trademark simple, informal and conversational style, he presents two works joined by their desire to ask a few questions about what we are up to, contemplate the world we live in a little, and think about how we might change it.

Commonwealth tells the story of some people who get together in a room somewhere to listen to a story, think about where they are, and what and how they might be doing.

All that is solid melts into air is a gentle meditation on existence, a plea for some humanity, a break from some of what might be happening outside.

Andy Smith has been making theatre under the name a smith since 2003, producing characteristically simple works unafraid to approach and address big subjects. He is the co-director (with Karl James) of the award winning plays An Oak Tree, ENGLAND and The Author by Tim Crouch, and along with Tim the co-writer and performer of what happens to the hope at the end of the evening.

All that is solid melts into airis a co-production between a smith, BIT Teatergarasjen (Bergen) and Black Box Teater (Oslo) and was supported by Norsk Kulturrad. commonwealth was commissioned by Gateshead International Festival of Theatre (GIFT) 2012 and developed at Pilot, Birmingham

Tis A Pity She’s A Whore

The Barefoot Players

Annabella, rich and beautiful, has her choice of suitors. But her heart lies closer to home with her scholarly brother Giovanni. Their love is forbidden but true, and they must keep it secret in a brutal, unforgiving world.

The Barefoot Players present John Ford’s Jacobean revenge tragedy of illicit passion and bitter retribution. Set in the mid 1600s , this is a new production with early modern dress.

Fantastically creative...enjoyable and engaging****

Rebelling Against Limit

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion

This second lecture concert by Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion is an argument about why they do what they do and usefulness or not of the structures and scores they use. Using specially written piano music and cartoon drawings, they explore a world where structures collapse and failure becomes transformative.

Duration: 45 minutes with a question and answer session following

It's all wildly, unclassifiably bonkers – postmodern music hall or performance art in a house of mirrors or a tower of Babel. But the timing of every note, shrug, laugh and gesture is awesome. The nonsense has a shining clarity.

Holocene

David Sheppeard Performs at Times

Reflections on eruptions, both geological and emotional, in a world intent on destruction. The true story of French volcanologists Maurice & Katia Krafft, who spent their lives on the edge of annihilation, collide with the everyday anxieties of adulthood in this new play about the lengths we go to to forget our own fragility.

Join David for an hour of FM Radio, NHS pamphlets, near-misses, childhood rock collections and lop-sided storytelling as he attempts to excavate where anxiety comes from and, when it’s arrived, whether it’s something that ever really erodes. Oh and there’s some wicked videos of volcanoes in it too, if that’s up your street.

Directed by Emma Kilbey
Holocene was commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre and supported by the Nightingale.
Funded by Arts Council England.

The video footage (which are fabulous close-up footage of craters belching lava) was incredibly powerful, and gave another rich dimension to David's journeys, both his physical wanderings and his interior odyssey. The play is about attaining a perspective on the world, and seeing further, and deeper, than the mundane everyday.

FringeReview

Sheppeard is a charming and erudite guide through the fissures, faults, fractures and fumaroles of growing up awkwardly.

Show and Tell

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion share two recent lecture concerts, each an exploration of different aspects of their work.

In Show And Tell they explore the hidden influences that have led to a growing body of duets. Revealing the vital role that mimicry plays in creative process, Burrows and Fargion compose a presentation of formative images and sounds, and in so doing examine what is absorbed and transformed, buried and disclosed, engaged and appropriated in the making of performance work.

Duration: 60 minutes

Burrows and Fargion play predictability against unpredictability, the expected against the unexpected, action against stillness, silence against non-silence, narrative against abstract, and absurdity against a sense of normal. In the intersection between these opposing ideas they find the space for both tension and its release in laughter.
