Theatre Bristol Bulletin: 20th October 2016 (the avocado edition)

avocadoThis week, the nutty avocado has divided generations in Australia, as Bernard Salt (yes that is his real name) boldly stated that young people should be saving for a house, rather than splashing out on posh brunch. Cafes are now selling cheaper avocado dishes (named the ‘home saver’) and the Sydney Morning Herald is calling for “smashed avo toast” to be made the national dish. Meanwhile, we learn that the sacred fruit is potentially adding to illegal deforestation in Mexico… While you ponder over the controversial avocado, I’ll get on with this week’s news.

Come to the TB open office on the 1st November at the slightly different time of 1-3pm. Come for introductions and new connections, biscuits and tea. nice

2016 has been all about dance for Theatre Bristol and on the 27th September we hosted a Round Table meeting to discuss dance in the city. It was a very necessary meeting to have and we decided it was important that these notes were shared publicly. You can read them here

For the next six months, Jacob Wells Baths (formally Bristol Community Dance Centre) is being run by Artspace Lifespace and they want to hear from you. Artspace Lifespace would like to encourage all dance and performance groups as well as local creative and community groups to get in touch and share their ideas and proposals for the best use of the space. In partnership with Vivid Regeneration they will be hosting consultation days for people to come and share ideas. 

Cardboard Citizencathys are coming to Bristol this week with their show Cathy. If you’ve never experienced forum theatre before, it’s well worth giving it a go. It’s your chance to change how things turn out… Theatre West bring you The Room upstairs at The Wardrobe from next Tuesday, and we’re excited about Bristol’s Big Night Out, ‘Tales from our city’, stories that lie hidden along the no.75 bus route on the 30th October at Zion Bristol.

The Plasticine Men are hosting another P.E class with Chris from Green Ginger next Tuesday and don’t miss out on this fab workshop with Uchenna Dance on the 9th November, house, waacking and vogue fused with contemporary and African dance. (Sounds like fun!)

ddThe latest jobs this week… Arts Council are looking for a relationship manager, Vamos Theatre are after a touring technician and Circomedia need a physical Theatre teacher. 

Lastly, we are excited to announce that tickets for Devoted and Disgruntled in Bristol are now on sale! Get them before the 1st December for the early bird price.

That’s it from me!
