Coffee Shop of Horrors

Author: Paige Evans
Director: Paige Evans
Location: TS1 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

The Brewers’ Pot, owned for generations by the Brewers – Colin, Maggie, and their daughter Tina, is experiencing some difficulty.

Back in the day, this coffee shop was the place to be. The major teen hangout.  The caffeine kick of the town.

But, over the years, as big coffee businesses have moved in nearby, this coffee shop has lost its cool edge.

Its naff, old-fashioned; a tea poorly strained.

The family has been struggling, and as Tina takes over the Brewers’ Pot, she needs a seed of inspiration.

However, maybe not every bean that makes a good brew…

Watch these horrors come to life in this charming musical, performed in the not-so-charming world of caffeine, capitalism, and the pursuit of the perfect cuppa.

Beaumont Academy Musical (aka B.A.M.)

Author: Samuel Edwards, Katie Ripley and Katie Heard
Co-Directors: Samuel Edwards(Director) Patric Basse, Rhiannon Adams(Assistant Directors)
Location: RS2 (Roborough Studios, Prince of Wales Road)

This British musical makes light of the American smash hit ‘High School Musical’ where a 17-year-old girl has transferred from a prestige Performing Arts school to the sports orientated Beaumont Academy. Much like the plot we all know and love, she meets the school’s sports hero and together, they find the freedom to express themselves through music and dance and ignite the drama department at Beaumont. We promise the best of British banter to retell this story of love through cutting-edge understandings of school life.

Inspired by the famous smash hit- 'High School Musical' we bring to you: Beaumont Academy The Musical, BAM! A must-watch for the entire Family/Squad/Possie- (even if you are on your larry)- enjoyable for any spectator. 

What couldn’t be a better mash up?

The Things I Never Told You

Author: Florrie Taylor
Director: Florrie Taylor
Location: TS3 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

The biggest guru-mantra is: never share your secrets with anybody. It will destroy you.  But, the thing is, it's not the telling, it's the NOT telling which is doing that.  This piece is about the things I have wanted to tell you but have never had the courage to do so. The Things I Never Told You is a verbatium piece, working from my own journals, cards, letters and recordings.

Trench Kiss

Author: Arthur Smith
Director: Rebecca Raeburn and Cameron Beer
Location: TS3 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

Jim and Sally are on holiday in Flanders, fulfilling not only Jim’s obsession with the First World War but his search for the fate of his grandfather, who went missing in battle. While Jim is off looking at gravestones, a startled Sally is suddenly confronted by Jasper Everly, a soldier who by a quirk of fate has been flung forward in time from the Great War and 1916 to the present day. Falling for his charm and apparent innocence, Sally elbows Jim and brings Jasper back to London, where he begins a hilarious roller-coaster ride through the late 20th century in this endearing comedy of relationships, historical perspectives and `progress’.

Confined to the bedroom of a crumbling estate, a woman becomes both irrated and infatuated with the four walls which surround her. As the edges begin to peel, she questions, what lies beneath The Yellow Wallpaper?

Guidance for Amateur Cidermakers

Author: Rosa Day-Jones and Simon Marshall
Director: Rosa Day-Jones and Simon Marshall
Location: TS1 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

Guidance for Amateur Cidermakers will probably not teach you how to make good cider. Sorry. That’s what some of the characters are hoping for too and we don’t have the heart to tell them. BUT. And it’s a big’n. It is a play about togetherness and separation, a witty insight into small village tensions and how they mean nothing to big city plans. After the success of Cope at RAW in September, Rosa Day-Jones and Simon Marshall are looking to use the formula of live music and physical sequences to track a brighter, uplifting comedy-drama. Sometimes about cider, mostly about everything else.

Research Seminar: Performance Studies, Intangible Cultural Heritage, and Indigenous Research Perspectives

Presented by: Virginie Magnat (University of British Columbia)
Location: TS1 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

As a European artist-scholar from Occitaniai working at a public Canadian university located on the unceded traditional territories of First Nations communities comprised by the province of British Columbia, Virginie Magnat is committed to honoring the perspectives and contributions of Indigenous scholars and to integrating their critique of dominant Western knowledge systems into her work. Drawing from her current research activities and most recent publications, Magnat will discuss in this research seminar the potentialities and limitations of the Anglo-American performance paradigm; the epistemological and methodological implications of the “performance turn” in the social sciences; and Indigenous perspectives on embodied knowledge, agency, and identity that might propel performance studies beyond the unproductive polarity of constructivist and essentialist discursive regimes.

 

Drawing from her twenty-five years of experience with physically-based performance practice and vocal training, as well as from the embodied research she has been conducting on the Occitan vocal music tradition of her Mediterranean cultural legacy, Magnat is collaborating with an Indigenous Advisory Committee composed of seven Elders/Traditional Knowledge Keepers and artist-scholars, as well as with two Indigenous and two non-Indigenous graduate students pursuing MFA and PhD degrees in Theatre and Performance Studies, Indigenous Studies, and Ethnomusicology. Together, they are facilitating “singing circles” that engage Indigenous, Settler, and Immigrant communities in non-colonial collective vocal practice hinging upon the Indigenous ethical principles of respect, reciprocity, and relationality (Wilson 2008). With their potential for transformation, these cross-cultural and intergenerational gatherings constitute powerful utopian performatives that contribute to current reconciliation processes in Canada.

 

Bio: Virginie Magnat is Associate Professor of Performance at the University of British Columbia. She works at the intersection of performances studies, cultural anthropology, experimental ethnography, and Indigenous research methodologies. Her monograph Grotowski, Women, and Contemporary Performance: Meetings with Remarkable Women (Routledge 2014) and its companion documentary film series, featured on the Routledge Performance Archive, are grounded in four years of embodied research and multi-sited fieldwork. Her new research project The Performative Power of Vocality and the arts-based community engagement initiative Honoring Cultural Diversity through Collective Vocal Practice explores vocality as a vital source of human creativity and an embodied mode of cognition grounded in process, practice, and place, as well as a form of social and political agency.

Love Lessons

Author: Anastasia Bunce
Director: Anastasia Bunce and Liam Elliston
Location: RS2 (Roborough Studios, Prince of Wales Road)

Meet Viv.

Far from your average teenage girl she is 19 years old, an aspiring artist, who has desperately fallen in love, with the idea of being in love.

A cocktail mix of Hermione Granger, Miranda, and Scarlett O’Hara. Embarrassingly romantic, strikingly intelligent, hopelessly clumsy. When will it ever go her way?

As she journeys through her first year of college with her childhood best friend Jac, (who sticks by her side despite suffering from her constant verbal diarrhoea and self-initiated psycho analysis) she voyages through the trials, trivialities and catastrophes of love and loss.  Embarking on unlucky speed dates with old Spaniards, eating sloppy spaghetti Bolognese at a fancy Italian restaurant accompanied by a vegetarian, attending punk rock themed Uni parties with supposed ‘soul’ mates, cheesy ice cream parlours with Karaoke Cher, she’s simply tried it all. Endlessly. But will all amount to anything? Or does all go wrong?

Searching ceaselessly for her soul mate, will she ever find the one?

Or has her true love been hiding right beneath her nose all along?

Through the Cracks

Author: David Anstey & future ensemble
Director: David Anstey
Location: TS2 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

When we fall, we fall hard.

Luckily, we all have our own safety blankets to catch us mid-fall, pick us up and keep us going. With an infinite potential for support and neglect, intimacy and coldness, how can we care for ourselves and others? What happens when there is nobody and nothing to break the fall? What keeps us going through it all; and ultimately how do we stay supportive, open and kind to each other in a world that can feel unforgiving and isolating.

Committing our minds and bodies to these questions we share with you our thoughts and experiences.

Becoming Aware of Body Movement

Location: TS1 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

During this one-day introductory training you will learn the basics of Laban Movement Analysis (LMA), a recognized system for describing, analysing and interpreting all varieties of movement of the human body. You will gain an embodied awareness of your own movements before acquiring some of the theoretical notions. In this sense you will be escorted into an embodied experiential appraisal of your own individual movement patterns as well as of group dynamics. The workshop will provide a space for the practical exploration of these emerging movement patterns, as well as for their discussion through the theoretical lenses of LMA. LMA was introduced by Rudolf Laban, one of the most important figures in contemporary dance history as well as a visual artist, and further developed in Europe, the UK and US by several scholars and movement practitioners (Irmgard Bartenieff, Warren Lamb, Peggy Hackney and Carol-Lynne Moore among others). It occupies a specific place among the wider methodologies for the study of human movement firstly originated by Laban, aiming at outlining tools to approach the qualities of movement above the sole scope of staged performance.
