Entrenched (A Work in Progress) – Miscreations Clown Company

Tuesday 9 December, 7pm @ Culture Lab, Newcastle University.

The Newcastle Centre for Literary Arts invites you to a work-in-progress performance of ‘Entrenched’, a new one-person clown show from Miscreations Theatre. The show is inspired by the First World War sketch journals of Major Guy Laing Bradley from Hexham, who fought in the front-line trenches. The performance will also contain animation and filmed elements, and will be of particular interest to writers and those working around issues of performance. As the performance is a work in progress, the director and performer will be seeking feedback and comments from, and to engage in discussion with the audience to explore the extent to which clowning can effectively interpret this kind of challenging material. Further information on the work is available here.

The performance will take place at 7pm on Tuesday 9 December in Culture Lab, Newcastle University. Entry to this event is free of charge, and includes a pre-show supper, but please contact Melanie Birch (melanie.birch@ncl.ac.uk) to reserve a place.
