1 Weekend | 2 Evenings | 4 New Works
Offering up a double bill of exciting new performances each night – two dynamic new shows for the price of one.
At The Civic we are passionate about programming new writing and devised performances from some of the UK’s finest emerging experimental artists and companies. The Civic’s New Work Weekend supports these artists and companies, giving them a platform and our ‘stamp of approval’ as they pursue their creative journeys.
BEAM - By Lucy Haighton
This is Granny's story – 10 pairs of knickers, a leap, a waft of lavender, a blue suit, and true love. True love? Does that even exist anymore? Times are hard, put on your slipper socks and join Granny – she has something sweet to share. Through movement, music and gentle interaction, Granny will take you on a journey through past love from a world before. Based on a true story, Beam is about hope, a celebration of the bravery and risks taken by an older generation, and leaves the audience questioning their own capacity to take such risks in the world today.
Standard: Elite - By Hidden Track Theatre
There are two types of ticket.
Everyone gets a Standard ticket. You must earn an Elite ticket.
Together, we're going to tell a story. The story of a girl from Lowground spun from spider web, and a boy from Highground carved from clouds.
Standards work to build the story, Elites control which path the story takes. That's fair, right?
Standard:Elite is a playful, interactive theatre experience that brings class to the table in a way that's accessible, non-confrontational, and above all fun.
Make your own choices. Tell your own story. Create your own class war.
Winner of the Greater Manchester Fringe Award for 'Best New Writing'.
