A student theatre festival promising to engage people in ‘a world of vibrant movement, compelling performances and contemporary design’ is coming to Middlesex University.
The Apple Core Festival, put on by final year Middlesex University Theatre Arts students, will bring together a diverse range of shows at the Ravensfield Theatre on Middlesex’s Hendon campus from 17-19 December.
Developed and acted by the group of students, the five show festival is in their own words - ‘an exploration of our lives with a little bit of quirk’.
Tickets are free and can be booked through Eventbrite.
Chekhov In Hell by The Meat Factory
17 (3pm), 18 (2pm), 19 (5pm) December
"The thing people don’t get is that everything is new, the past is dead, nothing is real, everything’s good, nothing lasts, it’s all changing, there’s no up, there’s no down, no one’s rich, no one’s poor, nothing is better than anything else, yeah?" - Dan Rebellato
Marbles by Underpin
17 (2pm), 18 (6pm), 19 (4pm) December
A collaboratively devised piece focusing on the nuances of hello and goodbye. The piece uses verbatim theatre coupled with the Stanislavskian technique of emotional memory to create an emotive and relatable cross section of human relationships.
Rachis by Sandinun
17 (6pm), 18 (5pm), 19 (3pm) December
In the vein of live art and installation we explore the notion of the performers working for not only for the audience, but also as part of a personal exploration. The work will focus on the performers own use of movement and their journey through the process in place of the search for character in order to truly access the personal. We strive for all things to be live and variable, and in focusing on personal exploration this idea is elevated.
The Devil We Know by Knife and Fork Productions
17 (5pm), 18 (4pm), 19 (2pm) December
Familial relationships are a funny thing. Trust can lie at anyone's feet, but be careful who you place it with because the person you trust most in this world may be the person who betrays you.
The Palest Ink by Anamnesis
17 (4pm), 18 (3pm), 19 (6pm) December
86,400 seconds in a day, but how many do we actually remember? The palest Ink is the debut show of Anamnesis, an exciting new piece dealing with memory.
