The Unit

The Unit is in an empty shop space in central Exeter where we host companies to come and develop a new idea for a week.  This is a R&D space only, where companies and artists can play, develop and explore an idea with out the pressure to produce something ‘finish’ by the end of their week.

The weeks run from Monday to Friday year round and the opportunity is open to everyone local and national and is a rolling application process.

If you’d like to use it, please fill out this form or contact Emily.

Scratch Nights

Every few months, we host Scratch nights, where companies show the beginnings of ideas to an encouraging audience.

This is always an exciting evening for audience and artists a like, as the work being shown is still in development and so feedback from the audience is a crucial tool to aid the success of the show.

If you are curious about how shows get made or just want to experience something new we recommend coming to our scratch nights.  There will also be nibbles laid out for you to enjoy, from our wonderful cafe.

Our next Scratch night is on April 24th.  If you have a piece of work in progress and you’d like to take part, or to find out more, please contact Emily and fill out this form.

Shout out for female performers

 

We are looking for guest performers for Calm Down, Dear performances of The Absolute Truth About Absolutely Everything.

The Absolute Truth About Absolutely Everything is a show about a crisis of masculinity, performed by a different female performer each night

The show was created by Olly Hawes with the collaboration over twenty other brilliant makers, it was developed at Arcola and Camden People’s Theatre last year, and is premiering at the Calm Down, Dear festivals at Camden People’s Theatre in London and the Bikeshed in Exeter.

Olly and the team are looking looking for guest performers for the shows at CPT on 22nd Sept and 6-8th October and Bikeshed 11+12th October.

Performers will read lines, follow stage directions and do a little bit of improvisation – so we’re looking for female performers with excellent sight reading skills, who are happy to play and will courageously embrace the unpredictableness of live performance.

The play explores the ethics and politics of a female performer speaking words written by a male writer, and contains some explicit content that some people may find uncomfortable. Each performer will receive a full briefing with Olly before the show, and a debrief after, and performers are free to decide not to read or perform any section of the script. There will be an opportunity for a further discussion of this before you commit to performing in the show

This is a paid opportunity, and a chance to be part of a live performance, the Calm Down, Dear festivals – and the conversations each create – in a unique way. If you’re interested, or know people who might be, you can find more information here http://www.ollyhawes.co.uk/#!truth-guest-performers/gkl6j, and get in touch with Ellie, the show’s producer eleanorjaneporter@gmail.com
