LIVE: Art for Isolation

20 March 2020

Our spaces are currently closed, but we want to keep celebrating and platforming the fantastic artists who work with us in our theatre, participate in our Local and Young Artists programmes, and throw parties in our Music + Events programme. Here are some of the things some of them are doing which you can access from home – we’ll keep it updated, so keep checking back.

FEM Zine

FEM Zine is a community, zine and a creative network that hosted a party with us during our annual NOW Lates. In response to International Women’s Day, they’ve designed this brilliant t-shirt that you can purchase over the next 19 days.

‘We’re dedicating this day to people whose gender means they need to fight for space and power. We’re dedicating it not only to women, but also to the many who transcend binaries. We love and see you all. “This day is ours”.’

You can buy it here.

Fussy

A queer club night featuring performances from drag kings, prinxes and/or non-binary performers. Fussy live streamed their party at The Yard on 14th March, which you can re-watch it here for a tasty night out from the comfort of your living room.

Performances from: Wanda Whatever, Clay Taurus, Cyro and Indy Nile.

Ben Target

Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee Ben Target performed his show called How to Build a Lighthouse in NOW 20 earlier this year. He’s now digitally premiering his new comedy special, and you can watch it here.

If you’re in need of performance art filled with punchlines, here’s your fix.

MYSTICAL FEMMES

A performance art duo made up of Tallulah Haddon (who recently performed in Edythe E Woolley’s NOW 20 show, Sensitive Plumbing) and Katy Jalili (who works on our Yard Bar) streamed their new show on 20 March, at 6pm.

A recording of their performance will be up on their Instagram here
