Shorts

Edmund Roland ‘LTD’
An ex-salaryman who has lost his way in London is confronted by his past in the shape of a former colleague in an East London squat.

Max Lincoln ‘Thyme’
A story about escape, cooking and thyme.

Fred Rowson ‘Woodhouse’
The Woodhouse Nature Reserve, South East London. It’s a sprawling hectare of knotted ivy and mossy tree stumps. And while its edges are speckled with rusting tins and damp takeaway boxes, its interior is verdant, untouched. There, beyond the padlocked gates some thing, some creature is living.

Noelle Rodrigues &Gareth Warland ‘I Open My Eyes And I See Something’
The psychological journey of a girl who must confront her traumatic childhood. Emotions and memories resurface with brutal and challenging consequences.

The Last Skeptik ‘Cheerio’
Taken from The Last Skeptik’s recent e.p entitled ‘I Don’t Even Like You’ the video for ‘Cheerio’ stars comedian / actor Doc Brown unravelling behind a mask in a video exploring the perils of drugs, booze, parties in an attempt to avoid reality.

Gabriel Robertson ‘Bucket’

After a devastating discovery at a fancy dress party, a young man contemplates suicide before an abandoned baby catches his eye and shakes him from his ill intent. Now, faced with taking care of it until the police arrive, he recruits his former best friend – but things are far from simple.

Simone Smith ‘Red’
A psychological hue which resembles that of blood evoked in the human observer.

Tim Bonner ‘Under A Vest’
As darkness falls across the city, a blonde with a gun investigates a noise – but all is not what it seems…

Mark Brown & Phil Haine ‘Somebody To Love’
When Sebastian brings home Cassandra he thinks he has found perfection. The fact that she is dead is only the first indication that perfection is rarely, if ever, attained.

Ben Garfield ‘The Players’
A single overhead lamp lights the scene as five shady characters prepare for a game of high stakes-poker. As the cards are dealt and the players place their bets, we start to suspect things might not be quite as they seem. What’s really at stake here?

Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH

I started ImmerCity in 2012 after university. The company is dedicated to creating immersive theatre that focuses on the relationships between characters and audience. I am particularly interested in how a performance changes our perception of space. Much of our work is written for a particular location. For instance we created a ghost walk for Holland Park, a witches seance for the basement of Babel Studios and an alien invasion for a car park in North Kensington.
“The Perilous Party” is being designed especially for the St Pancras clock tower. It was inspired by the idea of a Haunted House Party that is the central feature of the movie ‘The House on Haunted Hill’. It promises to be an evening of macabre entertainment and melodramatic spirits. I have always been a huge Agatha Christie fan, especially of her more spiritual detectives like Mr Harley Quinn. This show is an opportunity to combine a spooky murder mystery with an evening of games and movies. Audience interaction is one of the most joyful (if chaotic) aspects of immersive theatre and this is a wonderful opportunity for us to blend event with performance in a unique way.

AGAINST NATURE

What is monstrosity? Can language be monstrous? This work draws on a history of grotesquerie, decorative programmes which emerged from the marginalia of texts. Spaces of fantasy, and representations of a nature that goes against nature, against the grain.  Poetry and images will be interlaced with one another to explore the relationship between word and image in the context of the monstrous and grotesque.

Yates Norton & Emma Stirling

DARLING

A woman watches from the balcony, her white dress and mournful song drift down to him in wispy tendrils.

Mournful harmonies mingle in the echoing church, as two lovers re-live their ill-fated affair. Pick up your hymn book and turn to song number

666…

Gentlemen Prefer Bows Over Dinner

Gentlemen-Prefer-Bows-Over-Dinner-Stephanie-Berger-and-Carina-Finn1Old-time TV over Reebok, heaven over love.
After two beers their lips part; they get very lucky.
Four Martinis later, you’re homeless in America,
carrying an old-fashioned medical bag around
like your mother’s purse. This emergency is paramount,
tantamount, it is a Matterhorn, it is an emergency,
complete and full of meaning, explicitly significant
as a white flag—
Do you ever go to the Disney castle looking for smoke
stacks, a tea house? You are climbing everything
in the field outside my vision, which is the earth,
which is the target of a disaster. Love letters
over candy. Letters over love. There is no love outside
of the letter. There is a rose outside in the garden,
and I caught a falling leaf for the first time in my life.
I cut two copies of the key to my heart,
hammered light into sound, gunned down
three of my greatest opponents with a single shot.
I predicted this catastrophe, the catacombs
beneath the chapel, keyed the hammer, hammered the leaf
into forty smaller leaves. Even this endless heaven requires
an umbrella. Even this eternity retired
and hired a timekeeper. And we are on our way up
the Cyclone, the hurricane is coming. We are embarking
upon the Titanic on its third voyage across
the bottom of the sea, and we will wake up in different
hospitals, end up living in different palaces, one of us might
even camp outside for the night for the romance. The sun
also rises over ten different cities at once. You are climbing
everything in the field outside my vision
with the luck of a leaf. Stuck in seagrass, we flounder
like in the movies. At the end, after the great
disaster, we still take showers, get clean
and have our coffee, a small loaf of bread, and we eat it
with a fork and knife, gentlemen that we are.

AND SO IT IS BECAUSE OF THE LICHEN

Gathering the facts like so many

bones. They make a good tool

for telling you I am in love. With

the flint, I tear one open, climb in,

and speak: hold me close like a crucifix

above the river. I cannot cross it the way

I would my heart. In certain chambers,

the water pooled and stood. Day by day,

you recount your disillusions. You drink

from one spring & then the next. I have

remarked in women a curious ability

to embroider the facts. To get at the truth

I have been compelled to treat them as

pathological. What are her threats

but testimonies of love? That sincerity

she strewed about her as seed is

strewn and up grew a trampled flower.

Gathering the facts like so many flowers,

I just don’t like the water in the air

anymore. Stay on the ground. Let

your feet touch the bottom of the

spring, gaze longingly. These are

your instructions. It’s all you have

to do. He will love you too. You

will have a home. But I am scared

to descend. What if I hate it there?

So many birds in the air, pictures

in the rocks. It is vertiginous. Why

do they make it here, rather than

there? Because of the lichen, it is

impossible to see the footprints of

a child with the natural eye. His

life can be impenetrable because

of the footprints of his children

beneath the lichen. The sun is out &

water falls upon my head. My heart

takes leaps because of the lichen.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD // REDHEADS FEEL MORE PAIN
