The Fringe takes place on three days in the afternoon.
Based on true life events, the play ‘Cell Talk’ explores the meeting of two medieval women: Julian of Norwich (born 1343) and Margery Kempe (born 1373).
Julian is a recluse, an anchoress, a mystic and author (Revelations of Divine Love) and Margery is a wild and worldly woman who also ends up an author (Book of Margery Kempe). These two women with different approaches and different lives somehow come together to support and learn from each other.
With three gifts from the audience, a play will be created that has never been told before and will never be repeated again. As if by magic, an entertaining and engaging story will unfold before your eyes.
Viewpoints is a practice which develops the ability to be fully present, spontaneous and intuitive in performance and rehearsal. This workshop introduces some of the basic principles of Viewpoints. Participants will explore acting and devising techniques on an individual level and as part of a group.
Terminal C explores the twists and turns when two complete strangers are trapped together in an empty room. It is an exploration of the human condition; a contemplation on how a single event can dramatically change our attitudes and behaviour making you wonder do we really have control over our lives?
"The Way of All Fish" is a ping pong power game played between a self absorbed executive and her seemingly drab secretary. Over an impromptu dinner together, the executive's condescending graciousness drains away as the secretary explains her fantasy of gaining immortality by killing someone famous and successful - someone like her boss.
Using your suggestions as inspiration, Bake This will perform an entirely improvised musical live on stage. The characters are improvised, the story is improvised, even the songs are improvised!
When it comes to acting, sometimes the way you carry yourself can communicate far more than the words that come out of your mouth. Therefore for actors, body language study becomes extremely important. To go "under the skin" of the character one needs to look into every aspect of their body language. The workshop seeks a greater understanding of one's body and a predicted reading of the other's body.
This is the time to discuss ideas with the FEATS Steering Committee.
A terribly exciting little affair happens in the humdrum life of John and Mary, a tempest in a teapot, but while it lasts--well, it's high comedy, at least for the audience
