Open Captioned performance of Frankenstein by Cascade Dance

 Theatr Brycheiniog, Brecon
13th November 2018

Celebrating 200 years since the publication of Mary Shelley’s masterpiece; Cascade breathes new life into a story that has become so much more to us than its 19th Century origins. 
Visceral and engaging, Cascade’s production brings to the stage all the potency, drama and tragic inevitability that has made the original novel beloved of generation after generation. 

We all know Frankenstein; the tale of the monster made of and by man. A cautionary tale, a creation story, an outsider story…a love story.

This November, a new Frankenstein is born as a company of six performers and two musicians bring to life Artistic Director Phil Williams’ compelling new adaptation of the ultimate gothic fantasy. 

Supported by the Arts Council of Wales, Welsh Government and the National Lottery, with additional support from Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Ty Cerdd and Creu Cymru.

Cascade Dance Theatre in coproduction with Taliesin Arts Centre

Every performance of Frankenstein will feature open captioning for D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audience members.

‘Sheer artistry… a profoundly absorbing and moving show’ ★★★★ 
Scotsman

Off-Kilter is a darkly comedic visual theatre production from Ramesh Meyyappan, incorporating illusions and masterful non-verbal storytelling.

At work and at home, Joe Kilter has his routine. Some people think Joe is obsessive. Joe would prefer not to be thought of at all. A change in his routine turns his world askew. His life is no longer his own, his house is knocked sideways and he’s off his game. Joe Kilter is off-kilter. Feeling increasingly isolated, his life feels impossible until he is forced to exist in darkness.

Off-Kilter explores mental well-being, identity, feeling a little bit different from everyone else and not quite being yourself.

Hijinx

Be upstanding for The Flop –

HijinxHijinx takes a firm hold of one of France’s 
most explosive tales

The makers of Meet Fred team up with Spymonkey for a some serious clowning around.

 

Pioneering Welsh theatre company, Hijinx, have a brand new show The Flop, which previews at Chapter in 12-14 July 8pm, before making a world premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

 

The Flop, developed with clown supremos Spymonkey, is a historical romp through a bizarre true story of the impotency trials in 17 Century France. Embracing the art of clowning, slapstick and breaking a farcical fourth wall, The Flop blends Hijinx’s trademark playful humour with Spymonkey’s anarchic physicality.

 

About The Show

Paris. 1657ish. Impotence is illegal. When the Marquis De Langey is accused of being less than upstanding, his wounded pride leads him towards a monumental and very public flop. The Flopis a clowning physical comedy show with live music and big wigs.

 

Hijinx, one of Britain’s leading inclusive theatre companies, were winners of Best Ensemble in the Wales Theatre Awards in 2016 for Meet Fred. The Flop is a Hijinx production and the cast comprises of three learning disabled actors alongside three non-disabled actors. It is directed by Ben Pettitt-Wade (Meet Fred) and Toby Parks from Spymonkey is creative mentor and composer.

      

About Hijinx

What makes Hijinx different is that their casts always include professional actors who have learning disabilities. The ability of these effortlessly talented performers is at the heart of every show they produce, creating work that is utterly absorbing, surprising and provocative.

 

About Spymonkey

SPYMONKEY is the UK’s leading physical comedy ensemble, based in Brighton. They have been making sublimely hilarious and deeply ridiculous theatre for the last 20 years, delighting audiences around the world.

 

The Flop previews at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, 12-14 July, 8pm. Tickets cost £10 and can be purchased at www.chapter.org./flop or 029 2030 4400.
