Trailer: The Darkest Corners
Written by Transform 17  11/04/2017

Physical theatre company RashDash present a powerful new show confronting violence against women, performed outdoors on the streets of Leeds. Inspired by the city’s radical, activist history, this cabaret rally features live music, vivid physicality, and stories of resistance from around the world. The Darkest Corners is a communal celebration, a visceral reclamation of the city, a fearsome and triumphant outcry into the night. For full info & how to book visit -transformfestival.org/events/darkest-corners/The Darkest Corners is presented as part of Transform 17, a festival of bold, local & international theatre....

Guerrilla: just let go and dance!

Guerrilla: just let go and dance!
Written by Transform 17  13/03/2017

When you’re handed a pair of ear plugs as you enter the theatre, you know you’re in for something a little bit different, and this is exactly what happened to me a couple of weeks ago as I sat down to watch Guerrilla by Spanish theatre company El Conde de Torrefiel at Glasgow’s Tramway, part of contemporary performance festival Take Me Somewhere.Guerrilla is a dark comedy about the awakening of awareness. The action is made up of three parts; a conference, a Thai-Chi class and a rave and features a group of local participants on stage. Set in a dystopian...

Alice In Bloomers

Alice In Bloomers
Written by Becky Cherriman  23/09/2016

On a hot September day last week, a few of us met in the David Atkinson Room at Morley Library to see what we could discover about one of Morley’s undersung heroes, Alice Cliff Scatcherd (1842-1906). I’m delighted to be writing a one woman show inspired by Alice that is supported by Arts Council’s Grants For The Arts and Leeds Inspired. In attendance were also period costumier, Allana Marsh, Gina Day, Clive McManus and Julie Heeley from Morley Community Archives.Alice Cliff Scatcherd’s scrapbook, conserved by West Yorkshire Archives as part of the History to Her Story project is part of...

What does ten thousand pounds look like?
Written by West Yorkshire Playhouse  13/04/2016

Unlimited Theatre’s show Play Dough asks the question: What is money? Did you know you can make it with the power of your imagination? Play Dough, written and directed by Clare Duffy, is the game show where you can play with 10,000 real pound coins.  It’s a playfully interactive show for young people aged 7+ and their families about the value of money.  Hosts Queenie and TooMuch will lead you through a series of high-energy games while telling you their story, and everything they know about how money really works. You can’t take the cash home with you – but if you...

Wanted: your unpredictable desires
Written by Amy Letman  11/12/2015

If you could make anything happen on stage tonight, what would it be?Given the time and space and resources, what would you really truly want?Chris Goode & Company (the makers of ‘9’ and ‘The Albemarle Sketchbook’) are making a brand new show, and right now, they know nothing about it at all. It's a totally blank canvas. Anything could happen.They're breaking this currently empty show up into three-minute segments, and through the first few months of 2016 they'll be working with a diverse range of individuals, families, schools, workplaces, community groups and local organisations from across Leeds; each of whom...
