    Beady Eye, Bull Baby Balls

    Bull Baby Balls

    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.”

    Little Bulb Theatre

    Little Bulb Theatre

    Operation Greenfield

    THU 6 OCT
    Full £10 / Conc £6 / Schools & Colleges £5

    An exploration of music, faith and friendship

    Somewhere in middle England four unlikely teenagers are preparing for judgement day with ladders, Elvis and Forest Fruits squash – Stokely’s annual talent competition is nigh. With a stage full of instruments and an eclectic mix of recorded music, Little Bulb Theatre capture the confusing, awkward and beautifully naïve time of adolescence. The time when the once simple beliefs you held dear need re-adjusting to face the complexities of adulthood.

    “Recklessly talented…insanely brave”

    Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
