Confirmation

Synopsis:
If you pinned me against a wall, Id admit to being a liberal. And pinning me against a wall is exactly what Id expect from someone like you. Confirmation is about gulfs we cant talk across and the way we choose to see only the evidence that proves were right. Working with research into the phenomenon of confirmation bias, Confirmation is an attempt to have an honourable dialogue with political extremism. Created by multiple Fringe First winners Chris Thorpe and Rachel Chavkin, and presented by Warwick Arts Centre and China Plate. Commissioned by Northern Stage and Battersea Arts Centre.

Hannah

Synopsis:
Lose yourself in an extraordinary story that will transport you to a supernatural world and bring magic to modern day life.

But then Hannah's life is turned upside down and there are some very big decisions to be made. . .

Notes:
Inspired by Christopher Marlowes Dr Faustus, this is a tale of temptation, but at its centre is not a Doctor of Theology but a schoolgirl much like the 11+ youngsters at which this show is aimed.

High Speed Impact. Test Number One

Synopsis:
Queer Up North has teamed up with Development Lab at Theatre in the Mill to lay down an artistic gauntlet. As we ask ourselves what `queer' might mean in 2010, we've commissioned three leading experimental theatre makers and challenged them to create short pieces that capture their own personal take on `queer'. All three are performed together for two nights only. Part of the Queer Up North commissioning programme funded by The Foyle Foundation. Co-commissioned by Queer Up North and Development Lab. Where You Stand - How is your sense of who you are shaped by where you find yourself? Where You Stand is a cross between a performance, a poem and a puzzle, exploring ideas around (dis)orientation - both sexual and spatial. Chris Goode is a writer and theatre-maker who created the much-loved storytelling show The Adventures of Wound Man and Shirley in last year's festival. Where You Stand is a companion piece to Who You Are, which Chris recently made for Tate Modern. High Speed Impact. Test Number One - This is just a story about some things that happened to me once. It was all true. At least I think it's true at the moment. There'll be some stuff about aeroplanes. Most of the stories involve aeroplanes at some point. We'll have to see where it goes. Chris Thorpe is a writer and performer from Manchester. As well as devising and performing Unlimited Theatre, Third Angel and others, he also writes plays and screenplays, and sometimes radio drama for the BBC. He is currently working on a new book of solo pieces called Eating Wasps. It's All About the Full Stops - Jogelen: to entertain by performing tricks. That's exactly what Rachael will be trying to do in this one-woman piece; trying to keep everything together, all the balls in the air and not end up with egg on her face. Rachael Walton is co-Artistic Director of Third Angel, a company making projects in theatre, live art, video, photography, visual art and on the internet. They regularly tour both here and abroad but are proud to be from Sheffield and have made work there for the last 15 years with many extraordinary people.

Huddersfield

Synopsis:
"Sajtinac was in West Yorkshire for only three days, though that was enough time to notice "the way it rains in that boring way it does". His point is that for the generation who grew up under communism, then went through the war, Huddersfield - even in the rain - seems a distant realm of infinite promise. Set in the obscure Serbian town of Zrenjarin, the play commemorates a beer-and-spliff-fuelled reunion of a group of former school friends coming to terms with turning 30. Rasha, possessor of a dark and dangerous intellect, lives in a sty and behaves like a pig. Even the toilet door has fallen prey to his drunken father's haphazard asset-stripping. Downstairs, his friend Ivan is a damaged poet who is in and out of mental institutions. And Igor, who left to make a new life in England, is back home to intensify their sense of self-loathing.

Minsk, 2011: A Reply To Kathy Acker

Minsk, 2011: A Reply To Kathy Acker
In Belarus people bear the scars of repression all over their body. Gay Pride marches are brutally suppressed. Underground nightclubs are routinely raided by special-forces. If scars are sexy then Minsk must be the sexiest city in the world. a lament for a city that has lost its way, for a beloved home that has turned ugly, for a people who cannot express themselves.

Noise, The

Synopsis:
A remote island in the Southern Ocean. A noise that never stops. A massive iceberg in the harbour. A body in the water. And an 17-year old girl who is the only one asking questions. The island of Whitley is home to 'The Noise' - a weird, ever changing, ever present sound that makes the islanders... different. Nobody know what causes it and everyone has stopped asking questions. Only 17 year old Charlie and her best friend Harry, a local scientist, are still looking for the answers. But when an iceberg drifts into the harbour and a body washes up soon after, Charlie sets out on her own to uncover the truth and the source of The Noise. - See more at: http://www.northernstage.co.uk/whats-on/the-noise#sthash.L167w7ls.dpuf

Oh Fuck Moment, The

Oh Fuck Moment, The
In this unique, Fringe First winning theatrical experience, poet Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe explore the universally-known feeling that dawns when a huge mistake has been made. Set around an office table - the scene of so many oh fuck moments, audiences are invited to share their own mortifying slip-ups as Chris and Hannah examine the poetic guts of mistakes in a bundle of words and strip lighting. An oh fuck moment is the truest, funniest, most terrifying of feelings. Sometimes, mistakes are so great that there is no way back. But they also help us learn and appreciate what it means to feel human.

Presumption

Synopsis:
Presumption captures a young couple at the moment when they realise that their relationship has become comfortable rather than passionate, habitual rather than Dramatic. Against the backdrop of an insignificant quarrel, they examine their relationship and their willingness or not to accept its limitations. Third Angel's work is always visually interesting and here the mental exertions are mirrored by the performers' physical efforts as they struggle on and off the stage with an ever-increasing collection of domestic detritus. the piece is likely to resonate with young adult audiences.

Safety

Synopsis:
Michael is a well-known photographer specializing in war zones. His daughter has just been saved from drowning by a total stranger while Michael stood by. He and his wife, Susan, have the stranger round to dinner - to thank him. It does not go well. Susan finds Michael cold and distant. the stranger thinks that Michael is an emotional bully. Michael only feels truly alive when he's in danger.

Tangle

Synopsis:
Tangle is set in an underground research facility on Wimbledon Common where two scientists are on the verge of an incredible breakthrough. It's about the search for a lost brother, a missing uncle, a dead wife and an untraceable atom. It's about heroes, the ethics of progress and daring to believe in things we cannot see. It's a bit like Doctor Who meets Moonlighting. Tangle mixes quantum physics with urban myth, Albert Einstein with Great Uncle Bulgaria and uses leading edge scientific advances to teleport an orange. No really, we do. As with all of Unlimited's shows it's smart and it's funny. It throws some serious emotional and intellectual punches and it isn't scared of being a bit silly. It tells a great story and leaves room for you to do some of the imagining for yourselves. And we teleport an orange. What more could you possibly want?

there Has (Possibly) Been an Accident

there Has (Possibly) Been an Accident
When life offers you a choice between heroism and compromise - what happens? Sometimes planes dont land the way they're supposed to. the people of a country have had enough of their leaders, but those leaders have to be replaced with something. A person steps out of a crowd and, for a moment, becomes more than human. A man walks into the lobby of a building and brings death with him to prove his point.

This Is Just To Say

But what if you want to apologise and mean it This is just to say is about Britishness, politics, religion and family This is just to say is a conversation about hope, love and winning This is just to say is live art, performance poetry and extremely good company An intimate audience piece for 12-15 people set around a table.
