BLOODY NORA! By Liz Aggiss
This is a story of competitiveness, hormones and friendship where shit tricks become cheap laughs, and a Bach is worse that its bite. BLOODY NORA! is inspired and framed by clippings, offcuts, personal history, archives and assorted individuals: Malvina McGuire, Niddy Impekoven, Max Wall, Hilde Holger, an enthusiastic sock seller in Singapore and domestic drivel.
‘intellectually curious, funny and rude, possessed of chameleon stage talents and a taste for risk.’ The Guardian
Commissioned by Sadler’s Wells and DanceEast Co-commissioned by South East Dance
Hallo Spaceboy charts the final moments of Tom, an astronaut stranded in outer space. Full of humour and crippling self -doubt, Spaceboy guides us though
Tom’s world of dramatic impossibilities with a song, a dance, and just a little bit of masturbation. Part surreal rock gig, part tragic admission of failure, part cheap David Bowie rip-off, Hallo Spaceboy invites you to lace up your moonboots and leave the capsule, if you dare.
“Hobbs is like the Captain Haddock of space, replacing every ‘blistering barnacle’ with a hearty ‘fu*k’, he ambushes us with his world and it is unique.” Bellyflop
A dance for the enf of the world by James Morgan
Inspired by big budget catastrophe movies, wedding speeches and town hall fetes, James Morgan is here to prepare you for one last goodbye. This is a communal celebration of the apocalypse. Sit back and put aside the gory details of climate change, global politics and war because when the dancing stops, the world will end.
“teetering on the edge of tackiness, profundity and nonsense. He has a rare gift.”
