Halo

New ‘DigiPoi’ technology displays words, logos and pictures in the show’s finale. Stunning, elegant and extraordinary, this hugely entertaining act moves from beautifully presented feats of control and delightfully synchronous choreography to a jaw-dropping human-kaleidoscope finale.

“The Halo Glow shows are fabulous for christmas parties and light switch-ons.”

“The Halo Glow Show is an explosive visual stage act. Super-bright LED (glowing) hula hoops, juggling clubs and ‘hyperlight’ poi illuminate the complex patterns and textures drawn in the air by four virtuoso circus artists.”

A Christmas Carol

A Victorian family prepares a paper theatre for a performance of A Christmas Carol. The audience enters the imagination of one of the children and quickly, the cardboard stage transforms to reveal a magical world containing real dancers and stylised sets.

The classic tale unfolds in a rich tapestry of highly absorbing, theatrical drama featuring sumptuous visual effects inspired by the techniques of early cinema. In a daring twist of format, characters are portrayed by dancers and voiced by an eclectic cast of the world’s most recognisable actors.

The mix of danced action and spoken narration brings fresh dimension to Dickens’ characters and poetic language, whilst remaining true to the beauty of the author’s original narrative.

The Regulars

Have you ever wondered who might have nursed a pint at this table before you? Who propped up the bar a decade ago? Or who stood in front of that fireplace
telling tall tales 200 years back?

In Teatro Vivo’s new show THE REGULARS of the past sit shoulder to shoulder with the pubgoers and bar staff of today. Designed specifically for performance in  pubs, it is a celebration of the outlandish, sometimes incredible stories you hear over a pint.

Pull up that stool, lean in close, and as the drinks flow you might start to wonder how blurred the lines are between fact and fiction.

Private Peaceful

Set in the fields of Devon and the WW1 battlefields of Flanders, two brothers fall for the same girl while contending with the pressures of their feudal family life, the war, and the price of courage and cowardice.

Yours Sincerely

Will Jackson has accidentally stolen 300-second class stamps from the post office. But he’s making them count. He’s going to write letters. From
reconnecting with old friends and ex-boyfriends to run-ins with the marketing department at John Lewis, stamp collecting has never been so sexy…

Based on real-life correspondences; storytelling and lip-sync cabaret collide in this queer coming-of-age comedy about the complications of 21st-century communication.

“Crammed from start to finish with belly laughs and brilliance. The
power of the pen falls more swiftly and with far more punch than the sword in this heart-warming, laugh-out-loud comedy.” – Feminist Fringe Reviews

“One of the funniest, most moving one person shows of the entire
Fringe… The magic of the piece is in how Jackson makes the everyday seem so extraordinary.” – Broadway Baby

Is This It?

Scintillating, satirical, playful stories come together with enchanting music
for an evening of madcap humour. Three tales about the world we live in
and the lives we are speeding towards. A woman escapes domestic
drudgery into the wild magic of the woods. A talented singer is swamped by social media obsession. And two sisters escape a zero-waste, wellbeing-obsessed culture into a community of misfits and outcasts.

Told with energy and verve, these stories are sure to entertain. All the while asking whether there might not be a little more to life than this.

“A simply outstanding show in the delivery of multiple skills, classic storytelling and madcap humour” Fringe Review

“Enchanting, funny and captivating! Grace and Chloe cleverly combine storytelling, movement and drama into a wholly contemporary and modern piece of theatre revealing issues of our time in a magical way!” Audience Feedback – Daisy Squires, BAFTA Award winning TV producer for BBC.
