Theatre Bristol Bulletin: 13th July (the Welcoming Miriam to the Team edition)


this week Miriam Battye joins team Theatre Bristol as our new Administrator. We are thrilled to welcome her with open arms.

One way to meet Miriam would be to come along to Theatre Bristol’s next bi-monthly Open Office on Monday the 24th July between 11:00-13:00. Our Open Office sessions are informal drop-in events for anyone who wants to meet us for introductions and new connections. At least two Artist Support Associates and one of Theatre Bristol’s Executive Team will be all ears and on hand with tea, coffee, and questions. You’re welcome anytime over the two hours to join a relaxed chat about work, play and theatre.

No DescriptionNow with Edinburgh fast approaching, there is plenty of theatre to watch/participate in over the coming week(s), starting with the one and only Ferment Fortnight. Their first week wraps up tonight with Bertrand Lesca & Nasi Voutsas’ (of FellSwoop Theatre) Palmyra followed by Agnieszka Blonska’s Polish Vermin. I’m very much looking forward to this double bill and hope to see many of you there. Ferment returns next week for a further three nights of brand new work including Sleepdog’s electronic musical about grief A Million Tiny Glitches, Verity Standen’s human surround sound Undersong and Dom Coyote’s experiment in harmonic time theory We Can Time Travel. I’m loving the sound of all of this and this is only one half of next week’s programme. 

Menawhile, Luce Dreznin‘s Ophelia: Madness(blue) is on next Tuesday (18th) at St Paul’s Church and A Story from the Sea by Mike Akers and The People by Miriam Battye (yes, the same Miriam I just introduced) are playing the Unistov Studio in Bath 20-22nd July. Both works are sound designed by Sam Halmarack and directed by fellow Theatre Bristol Artist Support Associate Emma Williams. And if you’re still wondering what it is that us Artist Support Associates do, read on

I don’t think I’ve written a newsletter without mentioning The Wardrobe Theatre yet. I won’t start now because there are some very special things happening there this week including Jamie Wood’s O No! and Virgin Xtravaganzah’s Xtrah Virgin. They also have loads of upcoming Edinburgh Fringe previews over the coming weeks so check them out

And for the younger ones (3-8), Adelsola Akinleye’s interactive dance performance Ila is on at Bristol Museum on Thursday July 20th

Enough with all the work being produced and presented in the city, there are a few events and opportunities further afield that I thought worth mentioning:

No DescriptionPavilion Dance South West(PDSW) are looking for two South West artists who work with older dancers in a range of community and professional dance settings to join them for an exciting exchange project in partnership with CODA Oslo International Festival. Expressions of Interest (that meet the criteria) will be entered into a hat and drawn out by a member of the PDSW team on Monday 31 July. So, a good luck is in order…

No Description

And if the thought of heading up to Edinburgh (or Oslo for that matter) fills you with dread and you’d rather run for the hills, Valley Arts present Valley Fest (4-6th August), bringing the performing arts to the Chew Valley and building them a home.

There’s also an array of most excellent opportunities including at the brilliant Pervasive Media Studio and casting calls with looming deadlines including for The Bike Shed’ Happiness Ltd directed by Jo Newman and The Wardrobe Theatre’s Goldilock, Stock and Three Golden Bears

That’s all for now.
