What happens in a second? A child smiles, an idea orgasms, a popcorn pops, a sperm penetrates, a bull stands in the sun, a gun fires… We have at least 25 arms. Using 70s cinefilm footage of babies playing naked in the garden, stop motion animation, an experimental Wendy house, cooking and Shiva, this is the beginning of a trip into the depths of a second.

Beady Eye have been working in the studio at Chichester as part of their development of the piece. Tonight’s sharing will bring together these ideas before the show tours in spring/autumn 2012.
Ideas that are being explored in the piece include baby and bull movement, childhood and memory, and what happens when we become aware of each instant.

BULL BABY BALLS is being developed through a Puppet Centre Trust Residency at Farnham Maltings and an Incubate Residency at Little Angel and CSSD, with support from Theatre Royal Margate.

Praise for Beady Eye’s last show Everything Must Go:
“Full of delicious moments of invention.”
