Am I Dead Yet?

by Jon Spooner and Chris Thorpe
An Unlimited Theatre production
Death is no longer a moment. It is a process. A process that can be reversed.

Two friends, talking (and singing) about what happens when we die, how we think about dying, and most importantly, how some of us might be brought back. Performed by Jon Spooner and Chris Thorpe, Am I Dead Yet? is filled with stories and songs about death and dying and about how we don’t talk about it enough. It’s inspired by research into contemporary developments in resuscitation science and made in collaboration with Emergency Care doctors and professionals.

Am I Dead Yet? is the new show from Unlimited Theatre who were last at the Bush with MONEY the game show and who have developed an impressive reputation for creating new work that combines heart-warming and mind-bending storytelling with leading edge developments in science.

 


 

White Rabbit Red Rabbit

by Nassim Soleimanpour
An Aurora Nova Production
No rehearsals. No director. No set. Simon McBurney reads the script cold for the first time.

Internationally acclaimed White Rabbit Red Rabbit, by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour, is an audacious theatrical experiment and a potent reminder of the transgressive and transformative power of theatre. Since its joint premiere in 2011, in Edinburgh and at the Summerworks festival, White Rabbit, Red Rabbit has been translated into 15 different languages and has been performed over 200 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film, including actors Stephen Rea, Sinead Cusack, Marcus Brigstocke and Ken Loach.

There must be magic in the atmosphere By Benedict Lombe

Benedict Lombe from our Emerging Writers Group writes about diasporic experience. It’s 3am. I’m sitting in my room wolfing down a pack of Doritos and thinking about the night I just had. I’m also thinking – quite intensely – about who decided we needed more than one flavour of Doritos? Bro, you hit the jackpot…

Rachael Merry: The BSL access is ‘rooted in the telling of the story’

Zia Ahmed’s tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you have is keen to cross boundaries. Vital to the three-hander is Rachael Merry, who uses BSL interpretation to convey the poetic beauty of Ahmed’s language . Rachael talks to us about the show, language, and the role of accessibility…

Lauren Clancy: “What can our next government do for the arts?”

In two days’ time the country will head to the polls to decide who our next government will be. While this will be a pivotal moment for the nation in many ways, at the Bush we are keenly aware of the shared responsibility of the sector to ensure arts and culture sit firm on our…
