    Caroline Horton & Company

    Caroline Horton & Company, Mess

    Mess

    Thu 5 Dec 7.30pm Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 14+

    China Plate presents Caroline Horton & Company – Mess

    Josephine is putting on a play – Boris and Sistahl help. It’s about anorexia. But don’t let that put you off. Unflinchingly they confront big issues (and extremely tiny ones). Today they will tackle a particularly thin elephant in the room. Obsession, addiction and not wanting to get out of bed: a play with songs from 2013 Olivier Award nominated Caroline Horton (You’re Not Like Other Girls Chrissy).

    Winner: Stage Award for Best Ensemble 2012.

    “Comes perilously close to genius and announces Horton as a major major talent”

    Liz Aggiss

    Liz Aggiss, Survival Tactics

    Survival Tactics

    Thu 24 Oct 7.30pm Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 15+

    From a glamorous, blonde bombshell in high-heels to a pigeon toed, bow legged, oddball in big pants – Survival Tactics upturns the usual perception of the female stage body on its head. Inspired by Ausdruckstanz, with a fascination for grotesque dance, and a penchant for British music hall, Liz Aggiss pays comedic homage to her historical mentors, and herself, through a seamless fusion of movement, text and film.

    “Liz Aggiss wowed us with her Survival Tactics, a bravura volley of agile mischief with ideas and limbs flying in brilliantly ridiculous directions”
    Mary Brennan Glasgow Herald.

    Scottee

    Scottee, The Worst of Scottee

    The Worst of Scottee

    Thu 17 Oct 7.30pm Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 15+

    Scottee encounters past flames, ex-friends and people who no longer like him in attempt to find out where he went wrong. Scottee wants to find out what people really think of him. Why he pretended to have AIDS, what prompted him to steal money from his Nan, why did he pretend his friend committed suicide and what caused all this behavior in the first place? Performed in a photo booth you are exposed to four snap shots of his troublesome teens. This show will give you reasons not to like him – it is Scottee at his very worst.

    Scottee won Time Out Performer of the Year in 2010 and is currently an associate artist at Roundhouse and Duckie. He is a regular contributor on Radio 4’s Loose Ends and the creator of the ‘beauty pageant for fat people’ Hamburger Queen, variety show Camp and presenter of iTunes Top 10 podcast After The Tone. The Worst of Scottee is his debut solo tour.

    Directed by Chris Goode.

    Supported by Arts Council England. Developed with Roundhouse.

    “Director Chris Goode is a theatre-maker who’s up there with the very best”
    The Guardian.

    Flexer & Sandiland

    Flexer & Sandiland, Weightless

    Weightless

    Thu 10 Oct 7.30pm Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 15+

    Weightless is the brand new work from Flexer & Sandiland. Celebrating the company’s 20th anniversary Weightless, in a tongue in cheek way, references its own historical position. It questions the ‘weight’ of history, both personal and aesthetic: what is it that roots us down physically and emotionally? What might it feel like to let go or take flight?

    Engaging and thoughtful, this show carries Yael Flexer’s recognisable stamp of witty text and wry humour combined with fast paced, space-hungry movement and a driving musical score by composers Dougie Evans and Karni Postel. A collaboration with Nic Sandiland, Weightless includes live digital projection and a sonic environment of disembodied voices and after images with text by Wendy Houstoun.

    “Dance that is unforced, unaffected, charming and smart”
    Time out.
