LUCA RUTHERFORD'S POLITICAL PARTY
by Luca Rutherford
Have you ever felt confused or overwhelmed by politics? Have you ever thought that the only way to make a difference is to change everything? Have you ever wondered what stops you from doing something?
Luca reached a point where thinking about politics made her want to lie down on the pavement and not get up. Instead of doing this she is throwing a party. A political party. There will be music, dancing and eggs! No know-it-alls. No big words. You are invited!
This is a show about how we do politics instead of talking about it.

A reflection on theatre rituals, fantasy and institutional violence.
Drawing on her experience as a master of ceremonies and as an arts organisation employee, Rosa examines the relationship between a spokesman and their institution. She enters the stage for an in-house announcement, a thank you to the sponsors, a warm-up act…
This project of self-reflection and industry critique deals with apologetic addresses, revved-up entrepreneurial spiel and whether or not your asking for it. Through subversive humour she points to our expectations of the MC and plays with what happens when the composition cracks.

Preconceived is a show about sex.
Using physical theatre and interviews with people from all walks of life the piece sheds light on the stories we don't hear so often when it comes to sex; the funny, painful, hairy confusing truth of it, and encourages conversation about this centrally human topic.
