Slow Blue Love

Slow Blue Love

Morgan Charlton presents Slow Blue Love: a solo performance using verbatim dialogue from Derek Jarman's BLUE, a personal account of his experience during the AIDS epidemic in the UK. Combining personal reflections on Jarman's work through the experiences of a Queer person, it is a love letter to Jarman and all the people lost during the AIDS epidemic. The performance features live drawing using the body as a tool, alongside spoken dialogue and movement.

The performance references 'Blue' (Derek Jarman, 1993) courtesy Basilisk Communications.

Performed by a BA Contemporary Theatre and Performance student.

Conversations

all the conversations we haven’t had yet.

In this raw yet heart-warming play, playwright Steven Kavuma invites us to observe four conversations with people who lay bare their inner thoughts and feelings at pivotal moments in their lives. The play is an exploration of how we love, how we grieve, and how we must grow up. Steven’s vulnerable and warm writing gives us all the conversations we could have had, should have had, and would have had, if only…

Sin É (That's That)

Sin É (That's That)

When waiting forever, time and identity intertwine. Two souls, shifting like shadows in the twilight. Waiting, navigating parallel realities…while the tree grows, whispering the promise of eternity to pass.

Inspired by Absurdism, Vaudeville and German Expressionism, Sin É is a journey through time and space, exploring hope, persistence and humour in extraordinary circumstances.

Devised by the Company, directed by Alan Fielden.
