“Foolishly I over-looked this for last week’s picks so you’ll have to get your skates on to catch Julia Croft’s performance piece which dismantles the room and reorders the universe with the aim of creating a feminist utopia. It’s like watching an astronaut setting out on a mission into the unknown as Croft does all the heavy lifting and reorders the space, changing the room in many ways. The chairs hang from the ceiling as if gravity itself has been defied. This strange, eerie, almost wordless piece may not be to everyone’s taste, but it is definitely to mine. It turns the world upside down and tries to find a new form for theatre, for time and space, for the universe itself.”


How to Build a Lighthouse // 7.30pm
Tales of belonging, goodbyes, forgiveness. life that spans oceans.

Critically-acclaimed artist and Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee Ben Target presents a tender show for the soft-hearted. A show about goodbyes, loneliness and never being able to feel at home. It’s time to say goodbye to your baggage with storytelling, origami tutorials and thumping rock anthems.

Working On My Night Moves // 9pm
A mesmerising dreamscape of tinfoil astronauts, dispersing atoms, The Wizard of Oz and Enya, inverting, making and remaking the entirety of time and space.

Winner of a Total Theatre Award 2019, Julia Croft and Nisha Madhan are breaking the rules, the patriarchy and the space-time continuum. Working On My Night Moves is the search for multiple feminist futurisms, a reaching for outer space and a fever dream. With science fiction, quantum physics and dubstep mash ups, this is a quest for utopia.
