Barely Methodical Troupe – SHIFT

My last visit to this years Norfolk and Norwich Festival was to The Adnams Spiegeltent to see the specially commissioned show SHIFT, by the Barely Methodical Troupe. SHIFT Explores shifting perceptions and realities through power based acrobatics mixing show-stopping circus tricks with the emotional punch of theatre.

Ben Folds and A Piano

I was first introduced to Ben Folds in 2008, when the sound technician at the theatre I worked at used the Ben Folds Five as sound check music. By the end of the week I had to ask him what was playing and it was instantly added to my very small iTunes library- which at…

Improbable- The Paper Man

Its a festival of firsts for me this year. First time writing about dance. First time writing about music and first time at The Norwich Puppet Theatre. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long – its a brilliant venue that I will be keeping a closer eye on for sure. Improbable have been…

Fun House- Brisbane Festival 2017

The first post from my amazing trip to Australia is about a theatre show- which was actually one of the last things I did whilst out there. BUT this show finishes on Sunday 24th September so I wanted to post this before then just in case it tempts anyone in and around Brisbane to go!…

HighTide Festival 2017

I hate missing out on exciting theatre, but that is one thing I will be doing this September. Now I know I can’t complain too much about missing this festival – especially as I will be having amazing adventures in Australia (and possibly even seeing theatre at the Brisbane Festival ) but I thought seeing…

The Handlebards started their journey in 2013 and are currently two troupes of cycling actors who carry all of the necessary set, props and costume to perform Shakespeare…

Rear View – IOU

I couldn’t have got more lucky with the weather for my last trip to this years Norfolk and Norwich Festival. Glorious sunshine turning into a stunning sunset totally enhanced this innovative outdoor performance. IOU have designed a vehicle and created a show called Rear View– who’s world premiere took place here at the NNF. I…

Driftwood- Casus Circus

Last night I went on my first trip of the week to The Norfolk and Norwich Festival. This time I was walking up to The Spiegeltent in Chapelfield Gardens. It was another beautiful day so once I collected my ticket it was all about a pint of cider. I was at the Adnams Spiegeltent to…

Super Sunday- Race Horse Company

Race Horse Company are an all male Finnish Contemporary Circus Troupe created in 2008 with an aim “to take over the world” and after what I saw last night I think they actually can! Race Horse Company turned the Theatre Royal stage into an abandoned fairground and proceeded to run riot on the equipment that…
