One Life Stand

Where We Began

Often Onstage

By Eve Nicol

Thu 11 October 7.45pm

Wed 17 October 7.45pm

Wed 10 October 8.00pm

When every citizen is ordered to return to their place of birth, Where We Began examines where we could end up.

Often Onstage is an offbeat facetious romp that explores the ins and outs of theatre through the medium of dance.

The UK’s first Theatre Company of Sanctuary, Stand and Be Counted Theatre present a wild and vivid vision of the future, combining storytelling, movement and live music. Five performers from across the globe challenge existing notions of ‘home’ in this multilingual celebration of personal identity.

With one step forward and two hundred steps back, this choreographic exercise in comings and goings gleefully disrupts traditional theatrical conventions, unearthing dormant anxieties about life choices along the way.

One Life Stand is a late-night search for intimacy across a hyperconnected, hypersexual city, exposing the loneliness sometimes found in modern relationships, where the expectations of love and lust are ever-changing. Written by Eve Nicol with music by James Frewer and Honeyblood, this is the latest gig theatre production from the award-winning company behind All We Ever Wanted Was Everything.

Did you ever go to Silversands On a sunny summer’s day? Then perhaps you saw the mermaid Who sang in the deep blue bay...

The play is based on the original book The Singing Mermaid. Text copyright © Julia Donaldson 2012. Illustrations copyright © Lydia Monks 2012. Published by Macmillian Children's books.

One day, the singing mermaid is tempted away from all of her sea creature friends and her peaceful home at Silversands to join a travelling circus. The audiences love to hear her sing, but the poor mermaid was tricked! Instead of the swimming pool she was promised, she is kept in a small tank by the wicked circus master Sam Sly, and she soon longs to return to the freedom of the sea. Will she ever escape? And who will help her along the way?

Some Audio Described performances are preceded by a Touch Tour offering the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the set, props and costumes in advance of the performance. British Sign Language Interpretation Box Office staff can advise on the best seats for a good view of the interpreter and stage. Captioned Performances Captioning converts the dialogue and sound effects on stage into text which is displayed on a screen on or near the stage. Relaxed Performances In a Relaxed Performance audience members can move around freely, leave and enter the auditorium as needed, the lights never go completely dark and sound effects are softened.
