Crimplene Millionaire

Boogaloo Stu

White Dog Poo! Angel Delight! Chicken In A Basket! Orville The Duck! All of this - and much, much more. You are invited to play the Crimplene Millionaire board game; with a roll of the dice your host, the crimplene-clad light-entertainer Derek Daniels, rolls back the years to a world of 1970s glitz, pizazz and razzmatazz.

With a veneer of nostalgia, but set in the socio-political context of breadline Britain, Derek picks over the carcass of the decade; from the sexual revolution and demands for equality in the early 1970s through to the advertising boom and greed of the Thatcherite era, highlighting and celebrating forgotten talent along the way. Win Crimplene Millionaire and you will enter the 1980s with loadsamoney!

Alexandrina Hemsley and Jamila Johnson-Small

A romp through the politics of identity driven by basslines, paper signs and deftly thrown shapes. Imagine Angela Carter sitting down to tea with Yellowman in the jungle.

A show born from the humour and the horror of assumptions placed on bodies reduced to singular identities such as 'black', 'mixed' or 'female'. O negotiates the inescapable sexualisation of the body, through multiple positions and numerous wigs.

"A lawless rubbing of everyone’s faces in cultural shit about who and what young black women can be." Dr Charlotte Cooper

Interview in The Mastercopy

watched as they straddled the line between empowerment and objectification, between being themselves and what they were expected to be[…] You should go and see it because it is important

James Morgan

An uncompromising, brazen, dismissal of customary performer/audience relations.

TRAGEDIAN TRILOGY

Prodigal Theatre

A celebration of the 200th Anniversary TO THE DAY of Kean's London Debut.
Written & performed by Alister O’Loughlin Direction with dramaturgy by Miranda Henderson, Prodigal Theatre’s Tragedian Trilogy is everything you don’t expect from a solo performance or historical biography. Original and found texts are montaged with stylized naturalism and heightened physicality breaking convention to make direct contact with the audience in a damning indictment of our own celebrity-obsessed society. The three plays separately examine ambition, fame, and celebrity. Together they tell the whole story of Britain’s greatest ever actor.

TRAGEDIAN I – The Rise to Fame – 1789 - 1814
Bastard. Drunk. Actor. Genius.
On the 26th January 1814 Edmund Kean stepped on stage and changed British Theatre forever. He was a grieving, drunken megalomaniac. He was poetry in motion.

TRAGEDIAN II – The Fall to Infamy – 1814 - 1825
Adulterer. Star. Madman. Fool.
Confronted by the reality of the fame he’d fought a lifetime for, the world's first trans- Atlantic celebrity hit self-destruct.

TRAGEDIAN III – The Decline to Legend – 1825 - 1833
Revenger. Scapegoat. Father. King.
Diseased, dying, lonely and broken Kean has only his audience left to live for - and it's the audience that will kill him.

Extraordinary, inventive, imaginative, dynamic

Steven Berkoff in The Times

A Dickensian masterpiece...a remarkable modern talent

The Stage

Embraces Kean’s demons so wholeheartedly, you can see why Steven Berkoff has been raving about him

Because We Care

Colin, Simon and I

Colin Poole (UK) and Simon Ellis (NZ) are established independent solo contemporary dance artists. Together they collaborate as Colin, Simon and I to scrutinise male friendship.

Because We Care is about two men testing the bonds and limits of relationships. It asks what draws them together, what unites them and what forces them apart.

Colin and Simon reveal something beautiful, ridiculous, troubling, unresolved, between themselves and in our relationship to them. Here, there is a space to be unsure, to look again, to think, perhaps to intervene, to be conscious and aware of our responses and our responsibility. As an audience this is what we’re often missing out on; this I think is what they care about, and so should we. Marisa Zanotti

I felt overwhelmed by the viscerality of their physical presence, their virtuosic risk-taking and at the same time their ability to reflect ironically on the idea of 'care'

Christina Koustoula

Because We Care fixes on the moment where friendship becomes confrontation: who is in charge, who chooses, who decides

INVISIBLE GIANT (work in progress)

Feral Theatre

If plastic could talk, what story would it tell? A new play about our plastic shadow, made for INorganic at ONCA.

Award-winning theatre company Feral presents the story of a child made of rubbish, who grows inexorably larger, his life shaped by what we throw away. With a powerful fusion of physical theatre, original live music and inventive puppetry we follow his epic journey to understand where he comes from. But can he face where he is going?

Suitable for ages 6+

This is a work in progress, and free tickets can be reserved using the buy tickets link on a first come, first served basis.

2014 Pebble Trust Brighton Fringe Award winner.
