CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
Queer Up North has teamed up with Development Lab at Theatre in the Mill to lay down an artistic gauntlet. As we ask ourselves what `queer' might mean in 2010, we've commissioned three leading experimental theatre makers and challenged them to create short pieces that capture their own personal take on `queer'. All three are performed together for two nights only. Part of the Queer Up North commissioning programme funded by The Foyle Foundation. Co-commissioned by Queer Up North and Development Lab. Where You Stand
- How is your sense of who you are shaped by where you find yourself? Where You Stand is a cross between a performance, a poem and a puzzle, exploring ideas around (dis)orientation - both sexual and spatial. Chris Goode is a writer and theatre-maker who created the much-loved storytelling show The Adventures of Wound Man and Shirley in last year's festival. Where You Stand is a companion piece to Who You Are, which Chris recently made for Tate Modern. High Speed Impact. Test Number One - This is just a story about some things that happened to me once. It was all true. At least I think it's true at the moment. There'll be some stuff about aeroplanes. Most of the stories involve aeroplanes at some point. We'll have to see where it goes. Chris Thorpe is a writer and performer from Manchester. As well as devising and performing Unlimited Theatre, Third Angel and others, he also writes plays and screenplays, and sometimes radio drama for the BBC. He is currently working on a new book of solo pieces called Eating Wasps. It's All About the Full Stops - Jogelen: to entertain by performing tricks. That's exactly what Rachael will be trying to do in this one-woman piece; trying to keep everything together, all the balls in the air and not end up with egg on her face. Rachael Walton is co-Artistic Director of Third Angel, a company making projects in theatre, live art, video, photography, visual art and on the internet. They regularly tour both here and abroad but are proud to be from Sheffield and have made work there for the last 15 years with many extraordinary people.
