WE’LL CALL HIM PIM
Written and performed by Robin Steegman
18th – 26th September
Using various props, short music fragments and a pinch of PowerPoint style storytelling the audience will be invited into the world of a young woman’s ode to her puppy love.
We’ll Call Him Pim is a short story about two teenagers who experience their first feelings of what they call love for each other. Their story starts at age fifteen, when the smallest details are of utter importance, and continues to the present day. Nothing has been left undocumented over the years. Looking back, it would seem that the smallest details are just as important today as they were back then...
Young, beautiful, innocent puppy love meets deep, dark, slightly obsessive never-letting-go behaviour.
Since graduating from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2008, Robin has gained lots of experience in both theatre and film. Most recently having performed in a touring production of Elsewhereland, a Turkish-Dutch production which was part of the Europe Now Festival in London, Istanbul, Berlin and Amsterdam.
Directed by Douglas Rintoul
TICK – TOCK
Created and performed by two theatre makers, Chien-Han Hung and Rakel Dimar
9th – 12th October
A surreal and visually charged show. Sincere in its quest and uncanny in its humour.
What is now? What was then and what is when? Enter a port into a surrealist time bubble in the golden caravan of hopes and dreams, of past and future. Spurred by Dali’s painting The Persistence of Memory we take you to a place where the clocks are melting and you find your way back to the beginning of now...
