    The End

    Thu 14 Oct 7.30pm | Full £12 | Conc £8 | Age 16+ 

    In this new piece, Bert and Nasi dance the end of their relationship, imagining what a future without each other might look like. 

    Above the stage and projected onto a screen, two parallel narratives run alongside each other: the end of the Earth and the end of their collaboration. In the vein of their previous work, it is a poignant, sad and funny account of the ongoing ecological crisis. Their dance is a reminder and a celebration of our own mortality, and that of everything around us.

    Time unravels and stretches on into infinity, but the end has never seemed closer

    Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor.

    Both insistently silly and unreservedly heart-rending

    The Sleeping Trees

    Western

    Thu 16 Sep 7.30pm | Full £12 | Conc £8 | Age 15+ 

    The Sleeping Trees continue their decimation of the big screen and bring you another sordid tale, this time from the sandy depths of the Wild West. 

    The show follows unlikely hero Harry Sudds as a simple trip to the town bank quickly descends into the worst day of his life. Before he knows it he’s confronted by native Indians, talking wasps and one of the most majestic tumbleweeds ever seen in the west. With another rip roaring live score, The Sleeping Trees bring their fast, physical and farcical comic style to one of the most well loved film genres of all time.

    Not a cue was missed in a show where they come roughly every five seconds

    The List ★★★★ 

    With a script that steers left field of convention and indulges every whim, Sleeping Trees have created a lawless comedic style of their own

    Super Duper Close Up

    Thu 18 Nov 7.30pm | Full £12 | Conc £8 | Age 16+

    We’re all starring in the movie of our life. Selfie after selfie, post after post. It’s exhausting. So take a break. Bask in the glow of the big screen as someone else has a go. See the heroine all dewy-eyed as the camera zooms in. And in. And in. 

    Get set for a live-filmed ride through the anxieties of an unsettlingly ordinary woman’s existence. An epic journey to everywhere and nowhere, through a labyrinth of click-bait and pop cliché, via an infinite stream of frozen pouts and desperate smiles.

    3Fall Dance Company is proud to present four professional works celebrating contemporary female choreographers. Kay Crook’s Phoenix is an emotive and infectious work based on her company piece ‘Khaos’.  Marisa Zanotti makes reference to Roland Barthes brief visit to a Bognor Regis nightclub in the work A Lover’s Discourse in Bognor  which reconstructs a dreamy night in a fantasy ballet.

    Carrie Whitaker’s Tracker is a fast moving work where the dancers shift through a spectrum of dynamic intensities as they tune into the ever-changing energy, tension and drive of each encounter.  with momentum, energy and texture.

    Finally, we celebrate a recent 3Fall dancer who has now established her own company Morvell Dance. Her work 7 Minutes of Mind Mischief  is fast, frenetic and fun.  The show offers a variety of dance theatre works that celebrate the talent of these young dancers and includes new works from emerging choreographers from the University of Chichester third year dancers.
