A year on from our general election, three females convene to perform their own, alternative, party conference. Exploring power, voice, agency and sustainability they use the most heard phrases from governmental rhetoric to dismantle and redress dominant paradigms of power and Politics. Cock and Bull is a transforming choreography of words and a passionate speech of the body, underpinned with the real-time energy of political dissatisfaction and Tory tongue-speak.
Nic Green, Rosana Cade and Laura Bradshaw are all Glasgow-based artists. Work under the artistic direction of Nic Green crosses and combines dance, theatre, sonics and site-specific performance practice. Her work has been commissioned and presented nationally and internationally to critical acclaim, receiving sell-out audiences in the Barbican’s main house, the Arches Award for Theatre Directors, ‘Best Production’ at Dublin Fringe Festival and a Herald Angel at the Edinburgh Fringe. Cock and Bull was originally conceived with fellow, Glasgow-based performance makers Laura Bradshaw and Rosana Cade in response to the 2015 General Election.
Running time: 70 minutes.
This show is part A Nation's Theatre Festival - a celebration of creativity from across the UK. Theatre-makers from around the country will be presenting and developing shows across London April-May 2016.
