CroydonBites / Gill Manly & Joanna Scanlan, Shaniqua Benjamin, Anita Wadsworth
October 8.5:00 pm-7:00 pm
A festival of theatre and performance for Croydon.
CroydonBites is a new strand for local artists; a triple bill of bite size shows. The first line up features:
Shaniqua Benjamin / Love Warrior
What’s the point of a beating heart if not to feel?
What happens when love doesn’t take you to your happy place?
Love Warrior is a newly commissioned piece of spoken word theatre, further developing a short performance that was originally part of Apples & Snakes immersive show, Rallying Cry. This one-woman show asks you to get comfortable sitting in the uncomfortable that comes with love, change and challenging perceptions. Love Warrior tells the story of love being hard but necessary.
Gill Manly & Joanna Scanlan / The Benefactress
A gothic tale of female revenge set in late Georgian times.
Anita Wadsworth / Ready Steady
This is for anyone who has that thing they need to finish, or that stuff that they really need to do. Fragments of poetry, snatches of song and half remembered dances fit neatly into one sweet Pomodoro of a show.
Part performance, part motivational talk, set your timer and remind yourself of that glorious gift called time.
