Two brothers, Polyneikes and Eteocles, fight for the crown of Thebes. They kill each other. The rule is strict and clear: whoever dares to bury Polyneikes will be punished with death. Antigone cannot accept the laws that leave one of her brothers unburied and humiliated. State against Ideals, a young woman against a monarch, the whole town, us, inside the arena. How do you get a diamond out of a stone? 'I was born to love, not hate', states Antigone. And there is always a cost for it.
An emotional and hard rocking journey into the hearts and souls that exist on the outer limits of creativity and building regulations Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet re-imagine these stories and tell them with visceral live music, dancing, projection & heart felt storytelling and chewed bread sculptures.

Based on the charred remains of a true story. The 5th Marquis of Anglesey was one of the wealthiest men who ever lived. He burned brightly, briefly and transvestitely at the end of the 19th Century, blowing his family's colossal fortune on diamond frocks, lilac-dyed poodles, putting on amazing plays to which nobody came, touring Germany performing the inexplicable "Famous Electric Butterfly Dance", and generally desperately trying to make himself a legend. After he died at 29, his family, in vengeance, burned every proof they could find that he existed, and carried on as though he never was. How to Win Against History is a hilarious, ripped-up musical about expectations, manliness, disappointment and being totally fabulous: Hedwig and the Angry Inch meets Noises Off in a ballgown. A frothy, glossy costume drama about the stories we tell to convince ourselves it's all going well, and the moments we realise it's not.
1420s France - ravaged by war, under occupation from the English, a population divided. 18 year old Joan is a farmer's daughter, a freedom fighter, and just maybe the original drag king? Dressed as a boy, Joan defies convention and leads her county to freedom, but at what cost? 600 years on, in a world where women ?dragging up' as men is distinctly underground, Joan is still ahead of her time. Expect bold new writing combined with a playful and provocative cabaret style in this one-woman show about what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone.
Intimate, darkly humorous, and often downright absurd, The Man I Live With (formerly named I Stop to Understand) introduces us to seven couples connected by friendship, love, and conflict. Marines and their partners try to talk about war and ask how they'll ever replace the combat buzz, when they can't even begin to explain why they felt it.
In a fusion of anarchic theatre and dance, a flamenco dancer, a guitarist and a stripper reclaim the forgotten history of events leading to the Spanish Civil War. With the rise in opposition between anti-austerity and far-right movements all over Europe and the UK, Republica is a timely examination of the last time a government dared to take power from the super-rich to distribute it equally amongst its people.
World Premiere. Following the sold-out success of Don Quijote at last year's ?Viva! festival, Emma Frankland and Keir Cooper are back this time with flamenco dancers and choreographers Juan Carlos Otero and Lola Rueda.
Men have all the power. John and John keep hearing people say that men have all the power, but it doesn't feel like that to them. Abbi and Helen are making a show about Man and men. Because we all need to pull together now. We want to talk about masculinity and patriarchy but the words that exist aren't good enough. So there's music and dance too. Fringe First Winners in 2010 & 2011 RashDash return with a playful new show about gender and language. Two women play two women playing two men.
