We have a really exciting 2017 coming up, and I’m pleased to be able to announce some of the projects we’re doing here. Read on to see what we’re doing in the first half of the year.
PARTUS on tour
We’re currently back in the rehearsal room, revising and updating Partus. Updating because after a year’s break it’s normal to reflect on a show and rework it, but also because the personal circumstances of the team, and our relationship to the material, has of course changed. Check out the new trailer:
Partus is inspired by the everyday-amazing stories we’ve heard about people’s experiences of birth: mums, dads, midwives, obstetricians. The audience response in Sheffield last year was incredibly moving, so we are really looking forward to taking it out on the road again.
Brilliant – best theatre I’ve been to. • I chose to come to the baby-friendly performance which added an amazing atmosphere • Wonderful. A must see. • Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! I love that you talk about women’s stories, that they matter.
We open at ARC, Stockton before heading to Prema in Uley, South Street in Reading, Colchester Arts Centre and Barnsley Civic. (All our tour dates are on the new Calendar page). In all venues we are doing daytime and/or baby friendly performances. These were such a success when we did them as part of the Sheffield run, so we’re really looking forward to running them again.
Partus is touring again in autumn 2017 - get in touch if you’d like to book it!
Wish I had come yesterday so I could come again tonight and see it twice • Absolutely incredible. Fascinating. Mind blowing. Emotional. Pure talent and fantastically performed. Can’t even contain its effect in the words! Thank you. • A brilliant show. Awe inspiring and mind blowing. I loved it!
600 People is touring throughout 2017 and into 2018 - do get in touch if you’d like to book it!
