Opportunities for Schools
Macbeth, Tuesday 20 February, 7.30pm, Eastwood Park Theatre
Produced by Out of Chaos in association with Barnsley Civic, mac Birmingham & Oxford Playhouse.
Something wicked this way comes...
The multi-award winning creators of UNMYTHABLE and NORSESOME take on their greatest challenge yet: all the drama, intrigue and madness of Macbeth in 80 high-octane minutes; more than 20 characters brilliantly and boldly brought to life by just two actors.
Out of Chaos is a multi-award winning touring company based in Birmingham. The company makes generous, skilful theatre that has toured the world since 2008, winning three international awards and widespread critical acclaim.
'Expertly performed and stupidly entertaining' - The Guardian (on UNMYTHABLE)
'If you want to see two masters of their craft tell a complex story in a compelling way- go see it!' -Reviews Hub
'A force of nature, pulling off one of the most virtuosic pieces of acting I've seen in a long time'- Oxford Culture Review
Recommended age: 12yrs+
Freagra-A Blurred Expanse, Wednesday 28 February, 7.30pm, Eastwood Park Theatre
A playful, colourful performance of contemporary dance, suitable for all ages, with universal themes of community, conflict and harmony. Performed by five exceptional dancers, choreographed by Rob Heaslip, and accompanied by an original music score and breath-taking lighting and costume design.
Rob Heaslip is a choreographer who addresses themes of unconscious, unsought & unexpected behaviour, telling stories about people, how they think, move and act amongst each other. Rob is the Director and Choreographer for Glasgow Youth Dance Company and also works in dance for screen, including choreographing scenes and opening credits for the internationally acclaimed TV series Outlander.
"...by the end of the 50-minute piece, it has become increasingly hard to resist becoming caught up in its every nuance" THE TIMES ★★★★
