In a tender, fragmentary story about the inarticulacy of grief, this 2003 play by Olivier and Tony award winning playwright, Simon Stephens, looks at the different lives touched by the investigation into a missing girl. Incorporating a cinematic score, video and puppetry, DELIRIUM create an ever-moving London that plays backdrop to five lives that are standing still.
Returning to London with their sixth major production and following the sold out 5* run of From Where I’m Standing at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2013, DELIRIUM have picked up a previously produced play for the first time in their history. As a company focused on exploring the intricacies of human behaviour One Minute presents this challenging story with delicacy and tenderness and ultimately a sense of hope.
Date: 7 Sep -3 Oct 2015 (7.30pm)
Tickets: £22.50 - £25
Venue: The Vaults, Leake Street SE1 7NN
HELLSCREEN is a sensual, exciting and terrifying production which fuses film, animation, music, immersive design and theatre. Inspired by a classic Japanese horror story by Ryunosuke Akutagawa and set in the contemporary London art world, HELLSCREEN follows an artist, his daughter and a collector on their descent into hellish greed and obsession. It explores the artistic drive to create, the commoditisation of art and the rules of basic human relationships.
Renowned performance artist Jonny Woo (Gay Bingo, Bistrotheque) plays Frank Holt, an extremely talented contemporary artist whose horrifically dark personality makes him an outcast in already dark circles. His daughter, Amy (Vanessa Schofield) is the only thing that brings him a sense of joy.
Date: 25 Feb - 8 Mar 2015
Venue: The Vaults, Leake Street, London SE1 7NN
“Bold, subversive and very funny” (Scotsman, 4****) Helen Duff can’t help making light of heavy issues. Fresh from a critically acclaimed, ‘Fringe First’ nominated run of Vanity Bites Back at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, she’s opening London VAULT Festival with a daytime TV delight that’s devilishly delicious. A clown cookery show that proves once and for all: skeletons are far too funny to be kept in your closet.
Vanity Bites Back is an anarchic comedy about anorexia, attention seeking and finding the freedom to bite back at the stigma surrounding mental illness. An eclectic combination of clown, multi-rolling and cupcakes, it opens up a vital conversation about an issue that gains strength from silence. Duff’s charming voice of experience guides her audience through moments of hysterical revelation and shocking poignancy – encouraging them to laugh at their own anxieties. Vanity Bites Back will leave you hungry for more.
Date: 28 Janaury 2015 (6.15p, - 7.15pm)
