PORTFOLIO

SOMETHING IN YOUR VOICE

performance for theatres, in development

Our first ensemble show, exploring themes of communication, intimacy and privacy in a networked age of algorithmic surveillance.

LANDSCAPE (1989)

performance for theatres, 60 mins, 2018

A slow, dreamlike show exploring the secret life of mushrooms - and what they can teach us in the present climate emergency.

Combining choreography, found text & live cooking, Landscape (1989) is a meditation on endings and beginnings, asking how to find hope amongst ecological ruins. It’s an intimate and reflective performance which provides a whispered call to attention in an age of climate crisis.

MR JET

durational performance, variable duration, 2019

available for touring

SWEETENER

video, 12 mins, 2021

Our first video work, made during lockdown, Sweetener is named for the TV production practice of 'sweetening', or editing, the laughter of a live studio audience.

The film simulates a well-behaved audience via post-production collage, providing a laugh track for our everyday sitcom of shared delirium.

Commissioned by the Performance Research Network at Newcastle University & hosted in their Liveness exhibition.

CELEBRATION

performance for theatres, 55 mins, 2016

Our debut show, which won the Festgoer's Award and Sunday Times Playwriting Award at the National Student Drama Festival 2017.

 

Amidst global crises and 24-hour rolling news, CELEBRATION was made in response to a provocation: create an hour of joy.

A sort-of-variety show of games, song, dream-like images and clumsy dance, exploring joy and optimism as political tools.
