Theatre Bristol Bulletin: 15th June 2017 ( The Impossible edition )

cornSo then, that little word hope, well I think you might have been let out of the box recently.  I can see you floating around the streets of Bristol and I sense a bit more dreaming, planning, yearning, craving and hankering. Can’t exactly pinpoint why, oh yes I remember, 72 % of young people voted and made a difference.   

So, with that in mind lets grab all that hope and run through a field of corn – metaphorically I mean, fields of corn are way too scary to actually run through. 

Puppetry, mask, object manipulation – get dreaming. Tobacco Factory Theatre’s Prototype is returning this autumn as part of Bristol Festival of Puppetry.  It’s a unique opportunity to try out new work and the first time it has been dedicated to puppetry. And from Theatre Fest West  Do you have new small scale work ? Work in non-theatre spaces or need RD space next year ? Then this call for submissions is for you.        

Now to Edinburgh. TB are running a Who’s Going to Edinburgh event and an online form to register the work andBadger companies that our going.  Easy to fill in and it means we can support and help each other through the madness.  Come along to the gathering, our very own ASA’s Laura and Gemma will be there to share their experiences. I can’t help, my clearest memory of the festival last year was sitting one night with Kid Carpet watching a badger sort through the bins!! 

And how about our ASA’s There are three of us now Emma Gemma Laura. Are you Craving a bit of support, you need bespoke advice for a project, the development of plan, an idea, Just get in touch, one to one meetings are available all through the summer.  Did you miss last week’s PE class  ? No need for even a twinge of negativity, Rosaanne Elliot, a new emerging Cornish Director is leading the next session on the 20th June.  If it’s words of hope you hankering for check out Luke Emery report back on IETM Campus. He’s full, satisfied, but hungry for more.

Now if that hope is manifesting in a –  give me a job feeling – Dragonbird Theatre are in search of a fundraiser and The Corn Exchange Newbury have not one but two very different posts out this month.  

And then there is sitting in the audience feeling connected to the people around you.  This weekend my top pick is the chance to see two great shows in one gorgeous Double Bill  Eurohouse and Infinity Pool  at the Tobacco Factory Theatres. IfIP it’s Shakespeare your yearning for then check out  Julius Caesar at the BOV or for a very different take on the Bard Shakespeares Worst by writer and producer of the Simpsons Mike Reiss will premier in a brand new performance space The Stackpool Playhouse. 

cakeLast but not least it’s the last night tonight for Happily…Never…After.A water bound evening of confetti & cake aboard Bristol Ferry’s Matilda.  Bristol you got it all. 


Finally, Theatre Bristol would like to warmly welcome the brilliant Miriam Battye to the team as our new part-time administrator. 
So, to end with the words of Vivienne Westwood wringing in your ears

Let’s reasonably demand the impossible.

 Yes indeed 

Emma for TB
