Shoko Seki: Deadline

Shoko Seki

This part-choreographed, part-improvised piece explores the Japanese phenomenon of death through overwork: Karuoshi. What brings large swathes of Japanese society to dance on the edge of existence and mortality? Shoko Seki tests the ethical penumbra of long-respected societal truths: self-sufficiency, loyalty and trust. In the world’s most connected society, how can an individual fall off the grid? Join this intimate piece that flits between beautiful Japanese tradition, emotive contemporary dance and a sprinkle of improvised musical play!

Scribbles

Superglue Assembly Line

Z works in an office. Z wants to keep her job. It’s her safe place, her happy place; there’s just one thing that’s getting in the way: her work. Z must work harder to keep what she wants, but it’s slipping out of her hands, and it’s spiralling out of control. Z must think fast and act even quicker, but her reality and her TV are blurring, and it’s hard to know which is real and which is not. Is she insane? Is she an alcoholic? Or is she just really bad at her job?

Mopey the Clown

The Clinch Theatre Company

Mopey is a severely anxious adolescent whose isolation is manifested visually as a clown. In a hyper-gendered, caricaturistic and garish world, he attempts to emulate the stereotypical man through a series of fruitless endeavours. Through physical, non-verbal comedy and clowning techniques this punchy and zany piece follows Mopey’s efforts to break free from his isolation; bodybuilding, watching pornography and attempted suicide.

Losing It

2theatre

Performed by a clown duo enrolled in Cirque du Soleil, accompanied by one-man orchestra Bird Radio and comedy directed by critically acclaimed Cal McCrystal, this show is a daring fusion of laughter and tears. An odd and elderly immigrant couple is waiting for their children… A life defined by vegetables, routine and memories is illustrated through grotesque body-mask, mime, object manipulation and live music played on classical instruments and kitchen utensils. ‘5 Star Theatre’ (Berria). ‘One of Marcel Marceau’s finest students’ (AYoungerTheatre.com). ‘Refined and expressive puppetry’ (LondonDance.com). ‘A must-see live act’ (Evening Standard).

Last of Their Generation

Bhumi Collective ‘The more I try to remember her, the more I’ve forgotten her.’ Bhumi Collective returns to Edinburgh with the world premiere of Last of Their Generation – a solo-show by Singapore-UK theatre-maker Mohamad Shaifulbahri about the encounters we have with the people, places and things in our lives. Digging deep, he reconnects with memories (or what’s left of them) of the elders in his family, old friends who have moved away, places he grew up in that have stayed or disappeared and objects that have remained untouched but not unloved for many years.

How to Drown a Fish

Grace Gibson

Offstage a cassette is taken out of its box and put into the player. The music crackles and she bounds on to stage. With hairspray in her saliva, she dances on an uneven floor. The air is wet, her hair drips. She is drowning in a moment. Unpacking personal experiences involving children’s dance competitions, How to Drown a Fish dissects the point when it all goes wrong. Inspired by a moment of failure, we watch a girl with a hairsprayfixed smile do her best to stay afloat. Supported by Camden People’s Theatre.

Goldilock, Stock and Three Smoking Bears

The Wardrobe Theatre

The silver-tongued Goldilock can see that her days of selling moody goods on the cobbled streets of East End London are numbered. But when circumstances leave her on the run from a pack of bears and badly indebted to a notorious gangster, will our young heroine be able to raise the needed “bees and honey” in time and avoid doing porridge? A madcap merging of the classic porridge-thieving fairy tale with Guy Ritchie’s cult cockney caper to create something new, exciting, smart and very, very funny! ‘A side-splitting affair… raucously funny’ ★★★★ (TheFixMagazine.com).

Five Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist

YesYesNoNo

Sam wants to tell you about five encounters he had on Craigslist. This is a chance for you to get to know him. This is a show performed by one person who needs an audience to tell his story. This is a show about one person’s self-sabotaged attempts to know those around him, that considers whether a group of people in a darkened room can ever get to know each other. Desperately hilarious and achingly bleak; a tender questioning of our attempts to encounter each other in a technologized world.

Edison

Static Assembly

The life, career, and brutally stolen dreams of mastermind Nikola Tesla culminate in this genre-bent play, sponsored by one of the biggest assholes in history, Thomas Alva Edison. Featuring Tesla: troubled genius and brilliant inventor, and Edison: cunning businessman and crook, Edison brings to light this true story based on the life of the original electrical wizard. Conflicted between financial gain or the grace of invention, Tesla discovers that the greatest finale may ultimately be an erasure from the history books via a ride on a golden disco ball with his beloved Pigeon by his side.

Echoes

Infallible Productions Ltd

In a Black Mirror-esque near future, two men face each other across a table. A bomb has been dropped on purpose on the motherland’s civilian population. Why? Everyone has reasons, even the cruellest of plans can be defended. In an era of fake news and dystopic visions becoming everyday occurrences, the two men sitting at the table seem to be very distant in their arguments and ideologies, but their shifting convergence will bring a deflagration, like bringing matter in contact with dark matter. Echoes is a taut two-hander that will generate long discussions and food for thought.
