2019 IONAL S T A

WORKSHOPS Capture the World in Clay with Kajetan Uranitsch and Katelijne Beukema [NL] This workshop discusses and questions the world we live in, the categories of Fischli & Weiss, and then translates these into clay figures. LET’S CLAY! The Old Courtroom | 1 Jun 15:30 | £11 [£8.50] | [2hrs] | 12+

Brighton Fringe prides itself on being a global festival, and this year we are pleased to welcome some of the best contemporary performances and events by artists from Australia, Denmark, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Iceland, Korea, Netherlands, Norway and Sweden as part of our International Seasons programme. Dare to discover intergalactic adventures from Norway, virtual reality theatre from Iceland, Scandinavian burlesque, feminist/queer stand-up comedy, and much more. Our Nordic season comprises of 50 performances from 12 award-winning companies across six days, all performing at The Old Market.

Documents, Documentation, and the Post-Truth Era with Abhishek Thapar [IN/NL] A workshop which re-investigates the status and function of ‘documentation’ in theatre. Using storytelling, autobiographical material, and documents, we re-investigate the fine lines between fact and fiction, truth and lie, personal and political. Sweet Werks 1 | 4 May 10:30 | £10 | [2hrs] | 14+

This year each Dutch season company is also hosting a workshop; learn to improvise a song, find yourself with dance, question what you understand as the ‘truth’ or play with clay. Check out the opposite page for dates, times and more information on these workshops.

Instant Composition Singing Workshop with King Sisters [NL] In this workshop, Annelie Koning (‘Song of the Sisters’) will help you discover your individual sound. She will give you tools to improvise in a small group, with whom you will work towards creating a short composition. The Spire | 1 Jun 14:30 | £11 [£8.50] | [1hr 20m] | 12+

SUPPORTERS:

Körper: Discover Your Body’s Identity with NEON [DE/DK] Join us for a dance and physical workshop like no other. To discover yourself. Is there only one truth, only one way of being male and one way of being female? Only one view, one opinion, one identity? Only one body? The Spire | 1 Jun 12:30 | £11 [£8.50] | [1hr] | 14+ Master Your Movement with Sherise Strang [NL] A guided improvisation dance workshop to get in touch with your inner and authentic movement.

In 2019 we bring you the very best from Amsterdam Fringe. See award-winning shows and experience some of the most exciting work to come out of the Netherlands in the past few years. This year each event is also hosting a workshop, so grab yourself a ticket and get inspired.

Artist Speed Dating by Nordic Fringe Network [FI/SE] After successful editions in Cyprus, Iceland and Sweden, the traditional Stockholm Fringe Festival (STOFF) style artist speed dating touches down in Brighton! Meet artistic peers, introduce your projects, find your future collaborators and have some fika (coffee and pastry).

I’d Had Enough So I Killed Him by Sherise Strang [NL] A dance/physical theatre solo, inspired by the life of poet and writer Maya Angelou, a woman who fought her whole life for black women, as an activist and feminist . A search for being, seeing and wanting to be seen. A search for identity, security and strength. A search for confession, for conviction, for judgement. Washing all the dirt off to get to the core, to make it visible.

14 May 15:00 (Drop-in), 18 May 15:30 (Drop-in) | (Free, non-ticketed) | [1hr] | 14+

Cock Cock... Who’s There? by Samira Elagoz [FI] Not your average show about rape, female bodies, feminism and the male gaze. Samira takes us along on her personal research project across three continents via chat apps and close encounters. Gender relations in their brutal and wonderful ambivalence. A story about regaining power and attempts to relate to men.

30 May 18:00, 31 May 18:30, 1 Jun 21:30, 2 Jun 17:30 The Spire, St. Mark’s Chapel, Eastern Rd, BN2 5JN | £11 [£8.50] | [1hr] | 12+

Song of the Sisters by King Sisters [DE/DK] Joske, Annelie and Marthe Koning combine storytelling, movement and song to portray the universal dynamic of the family. A stunning, personal tale, which also takes you effortlessly down your own memory lane.

30 May 19:30, 31 May-1 Jun 17:00, 2 Jun 16:00

[Daddy Issues = a derogatory term to describe behavior of young women who are attracted to and/or have sexual relationships with older men.] This is a piece about older men, the young women who love them, and the world who think these women are idiots. Welcome to group therapy!

The Spire, St. Mark’s Chapel, Eastern Rd, BN2 5JN | £11 [£8.50] | [55m] | 10+

Körper (Body) by NEON [NL] Körper questions the unconscious way most of us live our lives. We all have our own different rituals which serve to reaffirm our idea of self and nurse our ego, but we rarely stop to consider what we actually base our choices on. Are we really in control of who we grow up to be? What made us who we are, and what happens if we don’t conform to the expectations of society?

14-15 May 22:00 | £10.50 [£7.50] | [1hr] | 16+

I Wouldn’t Date Me Either by Jonathan Duffy [IS]

My Home at the Intersection by Abhishek Thapar [IN/NL] An intimate and charming performance taking us back to the conflict in the Indian province of Punjab. A little boy dresses up as a local superhero. A family loses their home. Personal memories of three generations collide with the many official versions of a fragment of history. The past comes to life through video, stories, and the flavours he has brought with him from the kitchen of his grandfather. 3-6 May 15:30 Sweet Werks 1, 15-17 Middle St, BN1 1AL | £8.50 [£6.50] | [1hr] | 12+

The World We Live In (Die Welt in der Wir Leben) by Kajetan Uranitsch and Katelijne Beukema [NL] Award-winning performance from Amsterdam Fringe 2018.

I WOULDN’T DATE ME EITHER

Imago by Mosaikteatern [SE] A white rectangle marked on the floor and four chairs. Five performers bring the audience through images of co-existence and exclusion, loneliness and compassion. The recognition of elementary human conditions make us seem more the same than different.

17 May 17:00, 18 May 15:00 | £10.50 [£7.50] | [30m] | 0+

Ladies and a Gentleman by Ladies and a Gentleman [IS] A burlesque group from Kramhúsið Dance Studio (RVK) that consists of performers of different ages and backgrounds who share a passion for entertaining and exploring various topics whilst challenging stereotypical ideas about beauty and sensuality.

On the menu at The Old Market: 50 performances from 12 award-winning companies across six days in one location!

¡RÅ! by Anna Fält & Pia Pohjakallio Duo [FI/SE] Female heroes, everyday heroes, incantations and spells accompanied by percussive dance and strong stage presence: ¡RÅ! is a journey through women’s lives put together in an intricate, at times meditative, minimalist setting. Pia and Anna have, in an unexpected seamless way, brought together two distinct traditions without any loss of strength in either of the expressions used. They highlight long-ago forgotten texts from the lives of ordinary women. Think Finnish folk songs and flamenco!

A custom made, site-specific physical performance that invites participants to collaborate. “In my practice it’s about being present and curious, playing with risk and trust at the same time, mirroring not only the society but also the representation of a political body.” 14 May 16:30 | £10.50 [£5.50] | [3hrs] | 18+

May I Speak About Dance by Boaz Barkan [DK] Tongue firmly in cheek, Boaz Barkan’s performance involves you as a guest in an irreverent and witty exploration of what dance is and can be and how it is experienced. A quirky performance-lecture about dance and meaning, referencing iconic figures in contemporary dance. ***** (British Theatre Guide).
