Rent Party

★★★★
"Fierce and Fabulous" --The Stage

RENT PARTY is a 21st-Century Austerity Britain immersive show, inspired by the 1920s Harlem Renaissance Rent Parties. Just like in the 20s, we invite you - the audience - to pay to come to a party, so that we can make this month’s rent. We’ll entertain you with all our artist friends; dancers, singers, musicians, poets, who will create a kaleidoscopic picture of what it means today to be young, gifted, and black – and poor, and gay. Being broke never looked so fierce!

  Mina

Mina

Mina is waiting for you to take your seat. She wants your full attention.

She won’t speak, but she will show you. Her story is about to unravel. You the audience, are her redemption. Are you ready for this?

Combining projection mapping and animation with physical theatre, Mina is a sensory, immersive exploration of the world of conversion therapy and gay exorcisms still prevalent today

Wed 14 Nov | 9:00pm | £8.50 / £6.50 Conc.

Rockbottom

Rockbottom

Combining bold story-telling with highly physical choreography, Rockbottom is a moving and incredibly honest self-portrait of personal struggle with depression and addiction.

The themes are leavened with humour and warmth, skyrocketing between existential angst and irony, and give prominence to the roles of resilience and support networks within recovery.

Buy a combined ticket for MINA and Rockbottom on 14 November for just £12.50.

  Mop the House

Mop The House: A Short Guide to Vogue

An intimate extravaganza for two actors, one DJ, an audience and a runway that could go anywhere.

Fittings bring you the latest stage of their sashay into the world of Vogue culture. Melding history with fantasy and dance with urban sign. Featuring house beats with a punk sensibility and a lot of BAD language, Mop the House is the UK premiere.

Age Recommendation: Suitable for 16+

Scottee: Fat Blokes

Scottee: Fat Blokes

Fat Blokes is a sort of dance show about flab, double chins and getting your kit off in public - made by artist and forward facing fatso, Scottee.
