A moving-image installation by Ravi Deepres, commissioned to coincide with the Rugby World Cup. Beneath the high-impact challenges that take place along this notional frontline, there is another ‘gain line’ players and coaches aspire to reach – one that parallels the rush of competing players with a swarm of chaotic, sometimes conflicting data, captured by a new generation of sensors that players wear in training, and in matches.

Caroline Bowditch presents her intimate and enticing show exploring the life, loves and legacy of painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), exposing little-known facts about the infamous woman, remembered for her art. Falling in love with Frida is the reclaiming of a disabled artist, a love like obsession, an enquiry into how we shape what we are remembered for. Affinities and parallels are drawn and the tale of ‘the great concealer’ is skillfully revealed through powerful yet fragile bodies.

The Edge as you’ve never seen it before… a gripping piece of immersive dance/theatre where you walk around the action and become a part of it.

Watch as the world around you reveals four lives which are given an emotional counterpoint by a supporting community cast, an evocative soundtrack, fearless physicality, and new writing.

There is a possibility that God made everything because he was terrified of doing nothing. Here is a re-telling of the story of the beginning of everything inspired by Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost, only with less words, more dance and never before seen levels of divine incompetence. A show for anyone who has ever created anything (a child, a garden, a paper aeroplane) and then had to watch that wonderful thing spiral out of control.
