WEEK 2: 17 - 20 June

THE ALAN KEY

Written by Sammy Kissin and performed by Judith Amsenga

Jo’s bed is falling apart. When she goes to Ikea to buy a new one, it seems her life is on the verge of doing the same. What she doesn’t factor in is how everything is about to change, how she’ll come back from Neasden with so much more than a new bed.
This story plunges us into the tragi-comic reality of what it means to be a human, searching for love and meaning in the assemble-it-yourself age of Ikea.

WEEK 4: 1 – 4 July

LEPIDOPTERY

Created by Paloma Oakenfold

A short story about seeking out light, searching out love and stretching out wide.
 
Her mother used to keep her in a jam jar of Robinsons thinly cut marmalade. Until one day she’d had enough, It's a stuffy home a jam jar, apparently. So she stuck her arm out, then her neck, then a leg... And before she knew it she had uncurled, spread out, stretched up and breathed. She breathed!
 
It was only then she realised - she was in fact much bigger than that jar. And do you know what...? she never could fit back inside after that.

THE VENUE - THE CARAVAN

SET DESIGN BY ROSA SIJBEN

By turning the common order of working upside down, Rosa Sijben aims for a collaboration between fine arts and theatre that challenges the usual approach.

Traditionally there first is a play, concept or story and only then the creation of the set, Sijben wonders what would happen if fine arts wasn’t reduced to just the materials, props and costumes, but also makes a conceptual statement and takes initiative. 

'What if it moves from answering a request or need, to posing a question?' 

She will create a work of art, or a setting which contains several works, to be interpreted by the performers, who in that way will ‘complete’ the collaboration.
