Physical Fest Scratch Night

Fri 25 May 2018

Summer 2018 | Physical Theatre Showcase
Presented by Tmesis Theatre

Get your Physical Fest fix at scratch!  

Come and see four exciting extracts of new physical work from the best local and national artists.

This season’s scratch night is curated by Tmesis Theatre who create, develop and share physical theatre through touring shows and their International physical theatre festival, Physical Fest.

Here's the evening's lineup in full:


  Katie Tranter in association with Fun in the Oven Theatre- Chicken Pond

A first venture into solo performance, 'Chicken Pond' invites the audience into a silly world where the water is always warm and feathers turn up in unexpected places. Please welcome everyone's favourite ballet chicken as she presents her grand 'oeufre' for your entertainment. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you might even have an egg-istential crisis.

Katie is an actor-musician, theatre maker and clown. Fresh from completing the two year professional training programme at the Nouveau Colombier School of Physical Theatre & Mime in Madrid, she wants to spend more time making more people laugh more.

  Babel Theatre - The Fall

We are all indebted! Socially, financially, romantically. Tied to each other, with promises made or expectations placed on us. What are the terms of these often-unspoken agreements? And crucially, what are the costs?

Babel begin exploring the complex nature of everyday pressure, and the pursuit of success, professionally and socially!

Babel, based in Manchester, integrate expressive physicality, bold new writing and music to express the grey areas in life where language alone is insufficient.

  Ugly Bucket Theatre- Bost-Uni Plues

Everyone says that university is the best three years of your life! So what happens next? Based on the true experiences told by graduates, join three clowns as they leave the comfort of student life behind and enter the real world in an explosion of energy, honesty, dance, movement, techno, and plain silliness.

Ugly Bucket are a new theatre company composed of recent LJMU graduates that are committed to creating physical theatre that is unusual, unafraid and especially ugly.

‘It was fast, It was physical, it was funny, and it hit you right in the gut, everything a good piece of theatre should do’. - Liverpool Arts Society
