I want to see…
… some immersive theatre. Then see Flight. “Watch the action unfold from your personal booth with the story and music in your headphones. Miniature images and models move slowly round in front of you, drawing you into the brothers’ heart-wrenching journey.”
… some theatre about hypocrisy in the art world. Then see True Copy. From Belgiun, “Based on the true story of possibly the most successful art forger in the world, BERLIN uses its genre-curious style to expose the hypocrisy of the art world.”
… some Shakespeare. Then see A Midsummer Night’s Dream. “The UK’s premiere all male theatre company, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, return to Brighton Festival to celebrate their 15th year, with an open-air performance of Shakespeare’s magic-filled comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
… a joyful and tender dance that hopes to unravel preconceptions and uncover the endless possibilities that can make up a man. Then see BOYS. “Unscripted, with each story uniquely told in every performance, BOYS is a joyful and tender dance that hopes to unravel preconceptions and uncover the endless possibilities that can make up a man.”
… an exciting storytelling show for primary children (6+) and their adults. Then see Another Star to Steer By. You can bring this show to your school! “One day Maya packs her bag, ready to say goodbye to her home. As she leaves, she finds a little paper boat and begins a very big adventure! Join Maya on a magical journey as she sets sail on a voyage full of sea-soaked folktales, discovers fabulous creatures, meets legends of far-flung oceans, and begins searching for her own story out on the rolling waves. “
