ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST
 Three geese in a flock - one flew east - one flew west - one flew over the cuckoo's nest As a part of Chickenshed's 2018 Spring Season, we are looking at health as a theme woven throughout the various plays.

Ken Kesey's One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is an iconic story looking at mental health. The Chickenshed production works inclusively with a diverse cast who bring their own unique personalities to the story telling, bringing a new and fresh perspective to a much-loved story.

This powerful and affecting play by Dale Wasseran tells of Randall Patrick McMurphy who agrees to be committed to an asylum for mental assessment rather than spend another spell in jail.

His rebellious instincts throw him into constant conflict with the hospital authorities, and as he attempts to help the other patients take control of their lives, he comes to a devastating discovery of where true power lies.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest was adapted into a hugely significant film in 1975 with Jack Nicholson as a hugely charismatic McMurphy. Chickenshed's fresh new interpretation of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest will be a physical and thrilling version of this moving and touching story.

Tooting area: Location revealed on booking

KeseyElectrick Village present the world premiere of:
THE EXTENSION
 Created, written and directed by Ben Grant & Carly McCann.

An immersive, sensory experience, enhanced by the use of virtual reality to tell its story. Created by Ben Grant and Carly McCann, this piece will be performed in a venue in the Tooting area, as part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe.

The Extension then has hopes to travel to Edinburgh, Dublin, Belfast and other areas in the UK.

Two scientists, an undisclosed location and a secret to tell, they are in desperate need for your help. Are you the answer they're looking for?
How important is your legacy? The Extension explores the concept of digital presence after death. Reflecting on a world where virtual presence is starting blend with reality, and social interaction becomes less and less human, it begs to question. Is what remains more important than the precious time spent with our loved ones?

With the audience acting as the key piece to the puzzle, they are transported to the heart of an enigmatic story, heightened by sensory elements within a virtual landscape. Each experience will last approximately 25 minutes long, and will consist of one audience member at a time – aiming to create a uniquely personal narrative. The immersion begins as soon as your ticket is bought, as you put yourselves forward to aid or hinder our protagonists.

The Extension hopes to remind audiences what it’s like to experience, to feel and to interact. A tutorial on how it is to be human.
Electrick Villiage is a full-sensorial theatre company comprised of Carly McCann and Ben Grant. They blend virtual reality technology with sensation-stimulating storytelling to create completely immersive experiences. We strive to question and
explore the effects of technology on the world, and defy the limitations of modern reality.

BATTERSEA CIRCUS GARDEN
THE BIG TOP
Shillington Park
169 Este Rd
SW11 2TT
Part of Wandsworth Arts Fringe

4th to 13th May 2018

In 1768, on an abandoned patch of land near London’s Waterloo, showman, entrepreneur and equestrian rider Philip Astley drew out a circle in the ground, filled it with astounding physical acts - jugglers, acrobats, clowns, strong men and bareback riders and what we now know as “circus” was born. This spring, as part of the celebrations marking the 250th anniversary of the invention of this art-form, the Circus Garden will transform a small park tucked away behind Clapham Junction into a circus mecca.

Over the first fortnight of May, as part of Wandsworth Arts Fringe, Shillington Park in SW11 will be temporarily renamed Battersea Circus Garden and play home to a pop up venue, The Big Top which itself will host a cornucopia of circus entertainment. In a programme that offers a variety of shows including international acrobatic troupes, award winning contemporary circus, dance, physical theatre and experimental work, evocative cabaret and plenty of family friendly entertainment, Battersea Circus Garden will present a vision for circus in the here and now, as a vibrant celebration of this thrilling art-form

Kicking off on the evening of May 4th with a special opening show Hoops and Loops, over the two weeks, The Big Top will also feature acts that include the acclaimed Lost in Translation’s quirkily comic family friendly, colourful, loud dramatisation of the domestic adventures of a chaotic, dysfunctional family of misfits, The Hogwallops; Port Dance Theatre Project’s Pibroch Tales - A vibrant blend of bagpipe music, storytelling, dance and comedy; Hikapee Theatre’s physical and theatrical staging of their enchanting and magical children’s story about sibling relationships, Moonfall; Esprit Concrete’s Grit two extraordinary female artists delving into issues around health and personal struggle with a combination of parkour, dance, and storytelling; Nikki&JD’s Knot who use breathtaking acrobatics and humour in poignant piece that questions the quest for the ideal lover; Cypher Stories’ Simple Cypher - A mash up of hip hop, street dance, cyr wheel, juggling and live music created by fast rising circus duo Kieran Warner and Chris Thomas; multi-award winning Fauna in which five young and superbly talented acrobats draw on the parallels between human and animal behaviour; Juozo Miltinio Dramos Teatras with The Witch’s Necklace - An imaginative piece of children’s theatre, based on a traditional Lithuanian fairy-tale, featuring puppetry, clowning and live music to tell a story about how inner beauty wins over appearances; a very special appearance by the amazing Ethopian acrobats Bibi and Bichu and their troupe with Acts from Ethiopian Dreams, a jaw-dropping mix of contortion, juggling and cloth spinning, Sadiq Sadiq and Vendetta Vain with their evocative and provocative Our House – a celebration of queer sexuality, cultural heritage and identity; The Forgotten Night - a devised, ensemble production by Flying Fantastic exploring text, circus, puppetry and physical theatre; and the absurd and comic duet of circus, Cul de Sac with their physical, funny and thoughtful journey into the sometimes gentle and sometimes brutal nature of human relationships.

The season will also feature live music, participatory workshops and family fun.

Battersea Circus Garden producer Flora Herberich says:

‘It’s very exciting to bring such an array of circus to Wandsworth – there’s a whole range of fantastic work from traditional skills based shows to experimental contemporary circus, all presented in the beautiful surroundings of a genuine big top tent. Definitely something for everyone!’

Bishopsgate Institute presents

WEST SIDE STORY
Based on a Conception of Jerome Robbins
Book by Arthur Laurents, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim with music by Leonard Bernstein

The Great Hall, Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4QH

From 26th June until 1st July 2018

West Side Story is set on the streets of New York’s Upper West Side and explores the rivalry between two gangs, The Jets and The Sharks. Amidst all the gang warfare, Tony from The Jets falls in love with Maria, who is the sister of the leader of The Sharks. The dark themes, sophisticated music score and electric writing bring the story of Romeo and Juliet into the 20th century.

The Bishopsgate Institute production of West Side Story with full orchestra will be performed to celebrate the centennials of the birth of Leonard Bernstein, who composed West Side Story, and of Jerome Robbins, who directed and choreographed the original production. This high-quality amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) and ties in seamlessly with themes highlighted in Bishopsgate Institute’s special collections and archives which contain images and materials exploring cultural tensions and post-war daily urban life in both New York and London. The piece is based on a conception of Jerome Robbins, with music written by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics written by Stephen Sondheim.

This production is under amateur licence and the actors will be amateurs, but the creative team and the orchestra are multi-award nominated professionals who have been invited to ensure the highest quality of experience for the cast and audience, in line with Bishopsgate Institute’s philosophy. The production will be directed by Toby Hine and choreographed by Lemington Ridley, with the Musical Director to be announced. The show will be produced by Francesca Canty for Bishopsgate Institute.

This production will be set in the stunning 120-year-old Great Hall at Bishopsgate Institute, performed in the round with limited cabaret seating. Providing a rare opportunity to experience the show with a full 29-piece orchestration, played by the best up-and-coming professional musicians in an extraordinary setting, this will be an up close and personal performance as the streets of New York take over the Great Hall, with cast members weaving in and out of the audience as the show goes on.

The role of Maria has gone to the brilliant Emily McDouall and the role of Tony has gone to the hugely-talented James Gower-Smith. Anita will be played by Victoria Greenway, Riff will be played by Luke Leahy, Bernardo will be played by Christopher Georgiou, Doc will be played by Stephen Hewitt, Krupke will be played by Drew Paterson, Schrank will be played by Will Howells, Velma will be played by Claire Pattie, Anybody’s will be played by Lauren Pears and Somewhere Girl will be played by Marsha Blake.

The rest of the cast includes The Jets, who are: Callum Walsh (Snowboy), Joshua Yeardley (Action), Charlie Smith (Baby John), Glen Jordan (A-Rab), Chris Hughes-Copping (Big Deal), Ben Woolley (Diesel), Adrian Hirschmuller, Lora Jones, Jessie Davidson (Graziella), Tess Robinson, Caroline Scott, Sofia Sjostrand, Jennifer Thompson, Rachel Wheeler and Martha Stone. The Sharks include: Francois Vanhoutte (Chino), Dan Davies, Motohiro Okubo, James Monz, Leoncio Hernandez, Chloe Heatlie, Mariana Alfaro, Lois Howarth, Beatrice Mori, Paris Evans, Vicky Gkioni and Gamze Ozen.
