Caramel is edible choreography: a combination of dance, sculpture and cookery to stimulate the five senses. We can watch dance, even hear it, but have you ever tried to smell it, to taste it? Caramel invites you to do just that. After an initial research and development residency and sharing of work in progress at the Theatre in the Mill in early 2012, the company returns with a preview of the work. Caramel is being created by Rita Marcalo and the company, in collaboration with artist Manuel Vason and Croatian dramaturge Ivana Ivkovic.

We are working on a show about going to the theatre; getting ready for a night out, leaving the house and going to a place where a story is about to start. How do we feel in the moment before the lights go down and the show begins? Are we alone as we sit and watch or are we amongst friends? Who have we spoken to as we entered the building? This is a show about the theatre itself and the stories in that space; the journey that we take to get there and the people we encounter on the way. We are interested in working with local people of all ages and backgrounds, to create a piece of performance set in Theatre in the Mill and the surrounding area.

Open Space Open Space is a place for artists to play, explore and develop new ideas. A place to dream and think and a place to play test that thinking with audiences.

Invisible Flock: Takeover

www.wordlife.co.uk

A bottle, secret orders, the scale of the universe, Morse code, messages, Mercury, Morecambe, Venus, tattoos, Captain Cook, Cedric Robinson, sea shanties, Forever, Laika, Buzz Aldrin, Never Eat Shredded Wheat, a talking dog. Last year we went for two long walks: one by the sea, one across the sea (albeit when it was out, we’d called in advance just to check). We went on these two walks quite a bit and we tried to transform them into something we thought people would like to do, to go for a walk themselves. For two nights Invisible Flock and guests will turn these two long walks and some of the other stuff we’ve been thinking about into a sort of performance, a sort of chat, a sort of evening. We hope there will be live music, that is the plan. We don’t know exactly what it will be yet because we haven’t finished making it, but we promise it will be fun and we will make you pleased you left your house on a cold night* in October and came and joined us. * The weather being what it is, it will probably be a heatwave, if so we may well make sangria. Invisible Flock are an interactive arts trio based in West Yorkshire. They make large-scale interactive work all over the UK and are interested in the participation of audiences as co-creators.

Theatre in the Mill Commission Theatre in the Mill commissions artists whose work we love to create and show new, original performance

(Open Space) Saturday 20th October, 7.30pm Tickets: £3 From: 01274 233200/theatre@bradford.ac.uk Northern Creative Theatre explore the place where playwriting meets co-creation. The Museum of Terrifying Example is their fourth project to date and will be mentored by Forced Entertainment’s Cathy Naden. ‘Two exhibits, preserved in a state of existential crisis, compete perpetually for the audience’s attention in the forgotten corner of a hyperreal museum. Held up as terrifying examples of horror of unthinking mundanity and inaction, now forever on show in a constant state of performance, denial, excuse and explanation, the two curated personae work hard to be good exhibits.’
