Tarot The Feathers of Daedalus Circus

3 stars Tarot, a sensual circus performance, weaves together the mysterious and the acrobatic. With a mix of live music, tarot readings and of course circus performance, there is a lot of show to fit into a small space. Read the full review.

The Feathers return to the VAULTS with Tarot, their **** Edinburgh fringe hit, reworked and reimagined, conjuring up a night of circus, music, improvisation and divination. Hosted by the enchanting Ruby Wednesday and accompanied by our phenomenal soul-funk band Yoshi, audience tarot readings guide our performers in this unpredictable tale, where all is possible, and everything is unexpected. When the first card is turned our journey begins. Will the fool become the empress or the king lose his crown? Will the lovers be trapped in the caverns of the moon or the stars shine down on the hapless hanged man? You can shuffle the deck, you can lay down the cards, but the fates will dictate who will fly and who will fall.
Our Arcana adventure has taken us full circle from the underground tunnels of the Vaults back in May 2019 where we presented our atmospheric R and D findings to sell out audiences. We then headed to the Edinburgh Fringe where we performed in the brand new Assembly Bijou spiegeltent throughout August, gained rave reviews, performed on the Best of the Fest and the List UK’s Night at the Museum at the National Museum of Scotland. Wee Review **** stated we have ‘a magnificent, magical circus display with an incredible soundtrack and a look to die for’, and Broadway Baby **** that ‘This show infuses this powerful cultural imagery with music, energy and impressive, highly-charged physical performance’. Most recently we performed Tarot at Underbelly Festival Southbank in September. We are delighted to be returning to the Vaults where this show was born with a brand new reworked version of the show exploring the entire tarot deck and introducing the enchanting Ruby Wednesday as our compere and Tarot card reader to give the show a new and exciting vibe.

Santi & Naz The Thelmas

3 stars August 1947. Long-awaited independence for India and Pakistan, and the end of British rule. But it wasn’t a cause of celebration for everyone: there were many deaths, and mass migration ripped friends and families apart as people struggled to find where they belonged in a changing world. Santi & Naz is the story of two friends growing up in an Indian village in the 1940s, initially unaware of the events that will soon change their lives forever; it’s a small and intensely personal tale, which effectively conveys the confusion and suffering caused by global events. Read the full review.

Santi & Naz are best friends living in a small village in pre-partition India. Their story spans between 1945 & 1949. When Naz is betrothed to an older man, the threat of separation for the young women looms large on the horizon. As the political situation around partition worsens and violence erupts, they take drastic action. Santi & Naz explores childhood friendship, identity and loyalty set against the backdrop of a country soon to be changed forever. New play by Guleraana Mir and Afshan D’souza-Lodhi, from award-winning company The Thelmas, makers of LADYKILLER & COCONUT.

The Wild Unfeeling World Casey Jay Andrews & Lion House Theatre

4 stars (previous review) Reviewed in 2019 Billed as an ‘unreliable retelling of Moby Dick’, The Wild Unfeeling World is an intimate show, both in terms of its venue and the brittle feelings it explores. Performing in a wood-lined room reminiscent of a ship’s hold, Casey Jay Andrews lays bare her thoughts about the delicacy of human connections – and the crippling fear that asking for help will unduly burden those we reach out to. In truth it owes very little to Herman Melville: there are some amusing references to events and characters from his novel, but the parallels are too superficial to bear much scrutiny. Read the full review.

A tender, furious and fragile reimagining of Moby Dick from Fringe First winning writer and storyteller Casey Jay Andrews. A suburban fable of bad luck, reckless choices and irrational hope. THE WILD UNFEELING WORLD is a surreal and lyrical story about the times when we leap, where sometimes we soar, and sometimes we drown. <br/>The epic infamous whale is reinvented in London as a woman on the brink of self-destruction, caught in a chaotic quest for forgiveness. <br/>(Expect whale facts)<br/>By Casey Jay Andrews, creator of THE ARCHIVE OF EDUCATED HEARTS

SOLD Kuumba Nia Arts and Unlock the Chains Collective Co-Production

“To be free is very sweet”
When one woman tells of her extraordinary journey to overcome the brutality of slavery, she becomes a beacon for the British anti-slavery movement. Mary Prince was an auto-biographer and champion of freedom. Her book had an electrifying effect on the abolitionist movement helping to free many Africans in bondage.
Mary was born into enslavement on the British owned Island of Bermuda 1788? As with many enslaved people exact records of births and deaths can be difficult to come by and Mary's birth year is an estimation. She was the daughter of a House slave Sue and a Sawyer nothing unusual there but through Mary's narrative we are given rare insights into her life as an enslaved person. We learn of moments of love, conflict and some of the intricacies of chattel slavery that are seldom heard. When Mary's narrative was 1st published in 1831 it was the harsh realities the brutality of enslavement the treatment and dehumanisation of enslaved people that shocked readers. Also it was the fact of a woman speaking of flogging, of work that wasn't just back breaking but life taking. She shares with us her words and thoughts of how it felt to be enslaved, owned bought and sold. Mary's story gives us the voice of the 'chattel' those voices that are often silent, silenced, ignored or spoken for. Many who read her book could now picture enslaved people more fully as people with feelings, hopes and dreams. It also again highlighted Britain's role in enslavement. Often today many of us think of slavery as an American experience, hearing stories of the deep south, and forget that Britain played a major role. Mary's words help to remind us.
Told through theatre, song, drumming and dance, this masterpiece of Black British theatre is inspired by the storytelling traditions of the West African Griot/ Jeli.

Zahra Barri (Work in Progress) Zahra Barri

They say the truth hurts but it also sets you free. 'Radical honesty asserts that lying leads to stress and speaking bluntly even about the taboo creates happier people.'
But Zahra has her foot in her mouth so often, her breath tastes of the trifle that Rachel made in Friends. You know the one where she accidentally makes half a Shepherd's Pie and half an English Trifle and Ross tells Joey that it, 'tastes like feet'?
In this incredibly honest (and funny) show, Zahra reveals everything; because George Carlin said that 'Comedy is Truth' and Keats said that 'Truth is beauty'. Or was that Phoebe from Friends?
"A buzzy fluffball of comedy unafraid to take risks, like a cute lhasapoo puppy with a surprising snarl." Mumble Comedy ****

Invisible Museum is a female led melancholic surreal comedy, about the life (and thoughts) of Yolanda, a Latin American immigrant, who works as gallery invigilator in a famous museum. Her job is to sit at the corner of the obscure “Emergent Artist’s Room” watching over the visitors to make sure they wouldn’t touch the art pieces. That’s ALL what she’s in charge of. She’s not allowed to interact with anyone or patrol around the rooms. She has to be still. Nevertheless, Yolanda’s mind is free to fly. And so, it will. Lost in her thoughts Yolanda mixes reality and fantasy, bringing to the audience her most secret desires. In the real world, she interacts with Laurelle and Wanda K. The first one the museum’s new curator recently nominated the youngest most successful Art Curator in UK, a true rising star. The second, a conceptual artist from East London, author of the art piece Yolanda looks after.

Choreographies pop up as possibilities for relationships, spoken word suddenly seems to be the only way of communication and an increase surreal environment reveals layers of humanity. Invisible Museum is an all-female cast playing a melancholic and funny tale of self-exposure.
