Our biggest work so far, Near Gone, is a gripping story of survival, told with passionate dancing, pounding gypsy music and tremendous honesty. Winner of the inaugural Suitcase Prize as part of Pulse Ipswich, it’s been on tour since last October, and audiences are telling us they love it!
You can see Near Gone this summer at:
- 30 May, New Wolsey Ipswich, 01473 295 900
- 12 June, Performance Mix Festival, here, New York
- 1-23 August (odd dates only) at Summerhall, Edinburgh
Our visit to New York is supported by caravan. Our appearance in Edinburgh is supported by Arts Council England and Escalator East to Edinburgh.
We hope to see you soon!

We’re busy working on ideas for a new work, with notebooks of sketches, diagrams and text, snipped articles and fragments of materials – all for an exciting new show in 2014! The work is starting from ideas about maleness and power, gender politics, stereotypes we like and loathe… we shared the first rough ideas to much laughter as part of Tobacco Factory’s Prototype, with a bit more text at Bristol Old Vic’s Ferment and, following a short residency, in a BAC Scratch showing. The result is that we know what the piece is going to be in terms of shape and style, with lots of the content roughed out. It’s a great place to be and we’re grateful to the Kevin Spacey Foundation for supporting the project.
It’s great when a work has a long life, and this is one we really enjoy revisiting because it sparks such interesting conversations with our audience. A Journey of a Home has been to Wales twice in the past year, as well as playing ‘at home’ in Eastleigh.
It’s a one-on-one audio walk which sets off from a booth where anyone can stop by and share their own journeys with us — or read those others have left. Based on the story of a young woman’s first voyage from her homeland, it has proved very popular around the country and was selected for the World Stage Design showcase in Cardiff last year.
