Almost as old as the oldest civilisation is the myth of the flood. The story of a few who survive the waters through Devine intervention, and the help of a boat… but the flood we face is not a myth, and we have no one to save us but ourselves…

Commissioned by the Time & Tide Bell organisation; The UPG Team bring their distinctive performance-parkour language together with a vessel made of scaffold and a story told by a child to ask, in the face of rising sea levels, how we avoid having to choose who gets on the boat?

On the Strandline is performed by the Emergent Ensemble - a group of five early career performers brought together in the time of Covid to survive the industry lockdown.

Two characters find themselves boxed in, drawn out, a little bit lost and confused. Elbow Room investigates the theme of mental wellbeing and isolation but with a light touch; by using play, humour, song and movement. 

This performance was formed and inspired by interviews with young adults in the Cornish community; their words, stories and thoughts were integrated into the movement, text and aesthetics of the show. Elbow Room explores friendship, conflict, change and self-acceptance.

Elbow Room is in collaboration with charity Cornwall Mind and is supported by Arts Council England, FEAST, Cornwall Council, Mind Cornwall and Cultivator.

Josephine Baker. The little girl from Missouri who became an original 20th century icon. Dancer, actor, activist, campaigner, spy and mother to the multicultural Rainbow  Tribe, Josephine broke the mould and high-kicked the pieces to the kerb.

But, almost 50 years after her death, Café Josephine, a down-at-heel New York diner dedicated to her memory, faces closure. Nobody remembers Josephine, who she was, what she did, what she stood for.
And she just can’t allow that.

Three friends are getting ready for a night out, the music is intoxicating, they start to dance. It’s so good, they might stay a little longer…

DONUTS follows one night, separated over several years, in the life of a group of friends: how music connects them, feeds their friendship and their need to dance, until it becomes almost like a collective state of trance. It’s a celebration of all the times a night in is so much better than a night out.
