The Dressing Book

The Rude Mechanical Theatre Co

An hilarious and touching love story!

The Rude Mechanical Theatre Co presents a brand new comedic play using their unique contemporary commedia dell’arte style, and material garnered with the help of The V&A.

The Dressing Book follows the social round of Mrs Maybelline Erstwhile who records which dresses she wears for each event in her ‘dressing book’ – and the men she encounters while wearing them. The dresses become symbolic of both a search for love in a ‘conventional’ marriage, and for freedom from the domestic round imposed on her by social convention and her tyrannical husband.

The Rude Mechanical Theatre Company have been touring outdoors to mainly rural communities for fifteen years and have a huge following, but are not so well known in cities. They have a unique physical style heavily influenced by the commedia dell’arte.

A crucial part of our theatre ecology

No Place like Home

presented by Cinecity at the Nightingale

Directors Denis Doran and Teresa Cairns work with Peterborough and London homeless people to tell their stories through film – this evening is an opportunity to see two documentary works, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.

NO PLACE LIKE HOME tells the stories of ex-rough sleepers struggling to establish ‘ordinary lives’ in London. The film follows their experiences as they shift from the uncertain and chaotic nature of life on the Street, and try to move towards more settled existences and permanent accommodation.

SOME KIND OF LIFE is the result of working with people in Peterborough who have been, or still are, homeless. The film explores, through personal narratives, a constellation of issues implicated in being ‘on the Street’. The stories challenge assumptions about what constitutes home and how people understand their own sense of belonging.

Presented in partnership with videoclub.

Dad Dancing

An exciting new project by Rosie Heafford, Alexandrina Hemsley, Helena Webb and their Dads; Adrian, David and Andy.

Three eccentric dads, each with a daughter freelancing as a dancer. ‘Any of them paid?’ comes the worried voice of David Hemsley. A dance about many a sleepless night as these seemingly well brought up girls slip, slide, laugh and cry their way through financial and artistic insecurities and triumphs. Their dads anxiously look on, hand out advice and perform their own dances about their work and escapades. Innovative movement qualities, storytelling and humour will feature in a touching display of father-daughter relationships.

Currently in its Research and Development phase, Dad Dancing will work with all 6 performers over 2 months to produce 2 scratch performances informed by research activities with the public. The team will be resident at Nightingale Theatre in Brighton in November and South East Dance Studios in December.

As part of our research process, we are offering workshops and fun activities for dad’s and their children. Please check the website link below for times and dates of all of these activities.

Touching Bodies

Pitchy Breath Theatre presents a new play by Paul Macauley

Behind the glowing windows and under the street lights of every town, lonely bodies of teenagers, young adults, parents and the old live unaware of each other.

That is until tonight, when Lucy will leave Marianne holding the baby, Justin will receive a visit from the police, Mercedes will be cornered by a strange man, and Sian and Toby will finally spend their first night together. One night when each will realise sometimes we all need somebody, nobody, everybody, anybody…

Punched 3

presented by Touched Theatre

Think you know puppetry? Think again. Shining new light into the murky recesses of contemporary puppetry, Punched - Brighton's unique celebration of puppetry for grown-ups - is back for a third helping of mad marionettes, glorious glove puppets and the animation of objects that should probably be left alone.

Featuring brand new work from Annie Brooks (Colossal Crumbs), a sneak preview of Grist to the Mill's new production The Spithead and the Nore (2nd only) and fresh treats from Daisy Jordan, Matt Rudkin and Marion Deprez, plus special guests, join us for Punched's harvest festival.

Promises to be as subversive and explosive as a gunpowder plotter. Now that's what I call puppetry!

Between

Angela Woodhouse

Angela Woodhouse and Jerwood award winning artist Caroline Broadhead bring you a stunning performance installation, Between. Setting visual spectacle against intimate exchanges, the artists interrogate what it is to experience dance performance. This unique work is made in collaboration with exceptional performers Stine Nilsen (Candoco Dance Co), David McCormick (Richard Alston, DV8) and Martina Conti (Firenza Guidi).

The dancer approaches and embeds herself within her audience her arm covered loosely with gold leaf seemingly diseasing the skin. She claims attention. The gold is displaced, passed on, pressed into the skin – a kind of burn. Meanwhile, in the distance another performer is preoccupied in her private space, absorbed in subtle gestures in preparation for what is to come…

Limited capacity – early booking recommended

A description of this special, deliberately small-scale (yet, in impact, potentially pro­found) piece pales next to the experience of it. It’s about seeing the pulse in a dancer’s neck, or hearing his or her breath. It’s about stillness, and the sharing of something direct yet elusive, and the thin skin that surrounds the living soul

Donald Hutera, Dance Europe 2006 on Court

Tender and moving. Felt totally transformed and engaged

Audience comment

Quite, quite extraordinary – BRILLIANT!
