Theatre company focused on adaptation, new writing and physical performance. Making visually striking, poetic work focused on amplifying unheard voices. Exploring how our identities affect our lives, our perspectives and our experiences.
We are Apricity Theatre. We explore personal and poetic stories through new writing, adaptations and physical performance. We create strong visual theatre centred around identity and its effects on our experiences of the world around us and the situations we find ourselves in.
Established in 2013 by Hannah Mosettig and Charlotte Turner-McMullan during our time at Bath Spa University, our first production Morbo Amoris was staged at The Museum of Bath at Work. Since then we have continued to experiment with creative and found performance spaces – galleries, basements, pubs – and with new explorations into poetic story-telling.
We have formed connections with organisations such as Concoction Theatre Company, Black Dog Productions, Confessions of The Youth Theatre, The Barded Ladies, Beyond The Horizon, Bath Spa University and many more, and continue to seek out new creative families everywhere we go.
Our Shakespeare adaptation series, featuring Fall of Kings, Between the Armies, and soon The Breach, received five- and four-star reviews form 365 Bristol and Theatre Bath. The series is connected with research into the performance of masculinities in Shakespeare’s history plays, with workshops running alongside the shows to further their social and creative impact. Alongside our Shakespearean explorations, our one-woman show Open Mic., written by Hattie Taylor and performed last year, is under development before heading out on tour in 2019.
Apricity Theatre’s new adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Henry V comes to the Alma Tavern & Theatre Friday 12th – Saturday 13th July.
