This Last Tempest Trailer

This Last Tempest begins where Shakespeare left off. Caliban and Ariel are left alone on the enchanted island, as Prospero’s ship sails over the horizon and out of view. Uninvited Guests and Fuel This Last Tempest In the hours that follow, the magician’s former servants, the “savage” and the “airy spirit” are free to tell their unheard versions of the story. They use the magic of the words their master taught them to conjure-up their own brave new world, where spirits and monsters are people and inanimate things are alive. They perform a tempest and, as the wild waves roar around them, they begin again together. Working with composer and musician Neil Johnson, Uninvited Guests fill this strange yet familiar island with guitar noise, evocative sounds and sweet airs. Part theatre, part gig, This Last Tempest draws on the company’s collaborative approach to devised theatre and is a show for both those who know Shakespeare’s play and audiences new to The Tempest. "Amazing creation for all the senses. Stunning effects. Beautifully spoken. Exciting and moving. Atmospheric. Thank you." Audience Member "Wonderful evocative staging; a good imagining of the human condition and thought provoking ending" Audience Member Funded by Arts Council England. Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre and Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal. Developed at The Other Place at the RSC, and with support from Tobacco Factory Theatres. Current Tour Dates: Unity Theatre, Liverpool 23-24 January Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Aberystwyth 17 February Axis Arts Centre, Crewe 19 February Brighton Dome, Brighton 20-21 March

Clod Ensemble's The Red Chair Trailer

This intimate new show from Clod Ensemble - creators of genre defying performance - has a dark, original fairy tale at its heart. 'The Red Chair' is a surreal ballad that tells the story of a man who could not stop eating, the wife doomed to cook his meals and their ‘inveesible’ daughter. Join acclaimed writer/performer Sarah Cameron as she takes you on a journey through a world of extreme compulsion and eye watering complacency, where domestic drudgery happens on an operatic scale and a father’s dereliction of duty reaches epic proportions. Told in a rich and saucy Scots dialect with physical verve, a musical score that rolls in like the mist over the hills and a wee dram of whisky to oil the way, 'The Red Chair' lies somewhere between a Grimms’ Tale, an absurdist ghost story and a parent’s guide on how not to bring up children.

Fiction by David Rosenberg and Glen Neath

You are invited to a lecture. You know that the subject is probably important and it would be useful to hear what the speaker has to say but you can’t keep your eyes open... You will fall asleep and you will dream... But you won’t be alone in your dream; everyone else will be there with you. And you will have a chaperone who knows the landscape and will attend to you. So nothing can go wrong...unless...no...just close your eyes. Fiction is the second performance by Glen Neath and David Rosenberg using binaural sound and absolute darkness. It is an anxious journey through the sprawling architecture of our dreams and an exercise in empathy. Or it is an opportunity to get a 60 minute nap. Fiction is not suitable for insomniacs. Conceived by David Rosenberg and Glen Neath Written by Glen Neath Directed by David Rosenberg Music and sound by Ben and Max Ringham Commissioned by the Cambridge Festival of Ideas, Cambridge Junction and Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival. Funded by Arts Council England and a Wellcome Trust Arts Award.

Their parallel experiences reveal shared imaginings of identity and escape, as menacing undercurrents steal into their solitary and reflective lives. As the landscape presses in on them, they draw upon the threads that connect them to survive. “A hauntingly intense multimedia monologue.” Herald **** “An arresting meditation on isolation.” Scotsman **** “Melanie Wilson’s Landscape II is an extraordinary piece of theatre” Andrew Haydon, Postcards from the Gods #LandscapeII Funded by Arts Council England and the Ernest Cook Trust.

Waiting... for a cancer diagnosis by Brian Lobel, in collaboration with Iain Perdue

Waiting... for a cancer diagnosis by writer and performer Brian Lobel, in collaboration with Iain Perdue, a Research Worker in the Psychology Department at King's College London. Listen to the podcast here: http://www.fueltheatre.com/projects/while-you-wait Brian Lobel creates performances about bodies: politicized bodies, marginalized bodies, dancing and singing bodies, happy bodies, sick bodies and bodies that need a little extra love. After being sick as a young adult, he became fascinated with unique bodily experience and how it is conceived, discussed and witnessed by others, leading him directly into his current performance practice. While the work takes many different forms — installation, stage shows, cabaret, interactive performance and publications — each project is keenly interested in how you (the audience) relate both to him and to others. To do this, he combines his intimate stories with grander public narratives (about illness, technology, nationalism, economy, sexuality and more) in an attempt to show that we are all in this together. The work playfully inspires audiences to consider the world around them with renewed vigor, generosity, reflection and an insatiable desire to engage with others. www.blobelwarming.com Iain Perdue is a Research Worker in the Psychology Department at King's College London. Of his podcast Brian writes: For the "While You Wait" series, I thought it would be cheeky and subversive to write "Waiting... for a Cancer Diagnosis" and to try to put into practice some of the thinking that I have done in the past 12 years since I was diagnosed, treated and cured of testicular cancer. Because I have spent so much time working as a professional cancer patient - performing my personal patient narrative as well as creating work about how cancer patients exist in public space - I thought that the podcast would be able to be both simple, personal and profound. I wanted to make something that was well-researched, built in consultation with a professional, and that was a bit funny, sexy and political. I wanted and expected it to be easy, especially as I've thought about this subject for so long. Of course, the moment one agrees to write "Waiting... for a Cancer Diagnosis", suddenly, karmically, it happens. The bump. And the theoretical ideas you have about what you would do while you wait seem like a distant memory. This bump is not a metaphor, or an idea: this bump is serious.
