In a world long since removed from the language of ritual and ceremony, one man tries his hand at building a bridge into manhood. Can he rediscover himself and become the teacher he never had, for the lessons he never learned, about growing up and facing the world?
This one-man show, written and performed by spoken word artist Saili Katebe, looks to interrogate ritual, manhood and intimacy.

Lottie is a singer, stepping onto the stage to perform at her local Open Mic Night. Her audience watches helplessly as she is reduced to a shaking heap on the floor by a panic attack before she can even begin her performance. Unable to sing, she talks instead – about her anxiety, about the reasons behind it, and about how it feels to constantly be at war with your own brain.

Finding Feathers is a new devised production currently under development. This playful, poetic and full-of-possibilities show follows the story of a father and his two sons following the death of their wife and mother. As the family set about re-evaluating their lives now that there is one less of them, grief manifests itself in unexpected shapes and sizes. As grief often is, it is uncontrollable, bewildering, and often inappropriate.
This tender, and at times brutal, piece of story-telling is a highly physical exploration of grief as a physical entity, and the emotional role it plays in the process of damaging, but also repairing relationships following the death of a loved one.
