Theatre Bristol Bulletin: 17th November 2016 (the self-care edition)



How’s everyone feeling today?

In these uncertain times and with a hectic time of year coming up, this week’s newsletter is all about self-care.  Self-care is a priority and a necessity. Here are some suggestions to keep you feeling like number one. It’s important to make someone happy, starting with yourself.

Feel It Festival takes place this week at Circomedia. The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute and Life of Breath present four exciting days of events investigating pain, breathlessness, and the experience of being human. Expect talks, workshops and discussions, along with dancers, theatre makers, visual artists, aerial performers and musicians.

Take some time out to read our latest showcase, an interview with Submerge Festival director Mike Pony. Mike tells us about his brand new Bristol based festival of audiovisual arts, live performance and electronic music. Submerge kicks offsub8 this Friday with Dive at Colston Hall.

Treat yourself to some live performance this week. Impermanence Dance Theatre present their latest show SEXBOX this Friday and Saturday at  Jacobs Wells Baths (formally Bristol Dance Centre). The future of the building is up in the air so please join Impermanence for this special performance.
