Pramkicker


Old Trunk return with their accalimed show Pramkicker

 

Jude has always known she doesn’t want kids. Susie isn’t sure if her ovaries are twinging or if she just needs a wee.

One day, in a café full of yummy mummies, Jude loses the plot. Then gets arrested. Then gets sent to anger management. Susie goes along for the ride and uses the opportunity to confess a secret.


"Let’s get this over with, shall we. I had a slight situation and now they think I’m mental."

Meet Pramkicker.

"I am the Edith f***ing Piaf of the empty womb.  Je ne regrettay f***ing rien."

(She kicked a pram.)

My Inside Playground


My Inside Playground is a new bilingual dance performance by Complicite Associate, Shane Shambhu.

Shane is using his inimitable wit, charm, skill and a mesmerising command of movement to create a humorous, honest and engaging bilingual solo with an acclaimed team of collaborators. By reflecting on his personal narrative of learning and performing Indian dance in the UK, Shane plays with the ways in which race, language, identity and culture are perceived. 

Join us for a fun, subversive, dramatic and revealing night out!
