How to Build a Lighthouse // 7.30pm
Tales of belonging, goodbyes, forgiveness. life that spans oceans.
Critically-acclaimed artist and Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee Ben Target presents a tender show for the soft-hearted. A show about goodbyes, loneliness and never being able to feel at home. It’s time to say goodbye to your baggage with storytelling, origami tutorials and thumping rock anthems.
Commissioned by The Yard Theatre.
JULIA CROFT AND NISHA MADHAN
Working On My Night Moves // 9pm
A mesmerising dreamscape of tinfoil astronauts, dispersing atoms, The Wizard of Oz and Enya, inverting, making and remaking the entirety of time and space.
Winner of a Total Theatre Award 2019, Julia Croft and Nisha Madhan are breaking the rules, the patriarchy and the space-time continuum. Working On My Night Moves is the search for multiple feminist futurisms, a reaching for outer space and a fever dream. With science fiction, quantum physics and dubstep mash ups, this is a quest for utopia.
This show contains strobe lighting.
