    Neil Bartlett

    Neil Bartlett

    Live Art Agency DIY Project

    Sun 3 Nov 7.30pm Admission free | Age 16+

    University of Chichester and Live Art Agency – DIY 10
    Acclaimed director and performer Neil Bartlett grew up in Broyle Close, just ten minutes away from the site of The Showroom. For six years, he cycled past it every day on his way home from school……Since then, his early notoriety ( performing naked in derelict warehouses; directing
    Complicite’s first award-winning show ) has lead to a career that has taken him to the Royal Court, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal Opera House and the Royal Vauxhall Tavern – not neccessarily in that order ! – and now , for the first time in nearly forty years, he’s coming back to Chichester to make a new piece of work.

    Working with a group of local young performers for just 48 intensive hours, Neil is going to dive back into his past and create a new piece of performance that explores what it feels like to come back to the streets and buildings that he knew so well as a small-town teenager. What does it feel like to go back ? Is going back a good way to start going forward again?

    I LIVE HERE is being developed by The Showroom in association with LADA’s DIY programme.
    This first scratch Sunday night showing of the piece will be free, with no booking required – just turn up on the night for a glimpse of a very special artist at work.

    Flexer & Sandiland

    Flexer & Sandiland, 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.
