Utter Rot & Poppycock provides a supportive testing ground for new work: experimental theatre, improv, comedy, dance, music and more. This scratch night covers all types of performance, and we really want things that don’t quite fit anywhere else.
Have you ever had an unusual idea for a performance piece that’s part play, part stand up, part dance, part town hall crier? Want to read the yellow pages whilst riding a bike and dressed as Banana man? Want to do something we can’t think of? This night urges you to bring out the weirdest, darkest, happiest… whatever you want. WE LOVE FAILURE and perfection can take a hike.
Your 3, 5 or 10 minutes doesn’t have to go anywhere, become anything, or ever be seen again. This is a rough around the edges playground of experimentation. Bring out your stupidity, bring out your embarrassment, bring out your dead. Get in touch as soon as you have an idea, no matter how rough. If you’re unsure or only have an inkling of what you want to do, please get in touch and we will help guide you to your strangest heart’s desire.
Hosted by the fervently bodacious Jenna Thompson and the sumptuously sadistic Xenia Randle; prepare to be led on a journey of preposterous frivolity, filled with friendly faces, ridiculous games and extravagant costumes.
Remember: failure is your friend.
