Three Lessons (in causality, perception, and time)

Company Name: Dave Williams

Imagine the universe. All of time. Everything that has ever happened, and everything that will ever happen. Thirteen and a half billion years, from the big bang, the absolute moment of conception, all the way through to now. Imagine that all of this is just one single moment. What would happen if we could control this moment? What moments lie within?

Friday 21 May, 8pm. Saturday 22 May, 5pm

The Art of Etiquette is a show that explores what it is to be a woman, as two performers (each with their own
vagina) attempt to abide by the written, and unwritten, rules of society. We’re talking about beauty, manners, and sex. Join us, The Proper Ladies, as we encourage you to stare deep into that lipstick-stained mirror and realise that, perhaps, a woman may well be the right man for the job.

The Trilogy of Choice

Company Name: Hannah Olivia
Members: Hannah Jones, Madeline Brew, Elston Kavanagh
Duration 3 x 3.5 Minutes (full 11 minutes)

When the pandemic hit, lights went down in theatres, I felt it was a minor setback. Follow my journey from outside the abandoned theatre, through the silent foyer, finally returning to the stage. This contemporary dance piece documents the trials and tribulations of my final academic year and embodies the rebirth of theatre. Through denial, deception and courage; the three avenues of free will.

Autonomous Wonderland

Company Name: Alice Galvin
Duration: 4-5 minutes

Autonomous Wonderland is a world made up entirely of the imagination. A world where there are no limits to your freedom. A world, you can escape to when you’re feeling sad. A world where the line between fiction and reality is blurred. A world that transforms a miserable looking bathroom into a colourful dreamland. A world where no tyrants can tell you what to do. A world where you can drink tea with white rabbits, play chess, eat cakes, and kiss kings and queens.

Absolutely Trollied

Let’s see what happens or more so to try to remember what happens when you get Absolutely Trollied! From pre-drinks to the morning after, grab a drink and help us recollect the memories we want to forget. Who knows where the night can take us?

The Clay Man

Company Name: Josh Cooper
Duration: 15 minutes

Welcome to the Clay Man’s world. He’s ready to discover his face and his body and who he is. Will he shape himself to the person he wants to become and what will the clay face personality bring? Will you accept or reject the man he moulds himself to be?
