theatre can happen anywhere
Companies and artists from Brighton and beyond are always encouraged to use the spaces here to develop new performances. If you pass by the Grand Central Bar on a sunny afternoon, shade your eyes and look up to the windows of the Nightingale, you will often catch a glimpse of movement; as someone, or some-group, get to play out something new.
These past weeks, noises of fevered activity have been coming from the Dining Room as Annie Brooks’ company Colossal Crumbs have been developing a new work, Carp Blanch, and fanSHEN have been working on their performance as part of Dip Your Toe, Green and Pleasant Land.
Annie Brooks (Colossal Crumbs) is one of the many delightful faces to populate the Nightingale with her works, whether they’re ready made, in the making or just being thought about. Having been hard at work on the new show Carp Blanche, you are now invited to a visual feast for the eyes, merging puppetry and film and encompassed within the setting of a 1920s silent movie. The wordless performance will be narrated with beautiful text, music and an alluring French(ish) man, and will be shown as a work in progress on Thursday the 15th of March at 7.30pm.
Audiences are invited to pay what they can for Carp Blanch, but places are limited so do reserve your tickets here.
