Bush Bazaar

Sold out

Bush Bazaar by Theatre Delicatessen in association with the Bush Theatre

This summer Theatre Delicatessen is unearthing a new and wondrous world at the Bush Theatre; the world of Bush Bazaar, where market traders rub shoulders with fortune tellers, stock brokers and white-coated doctors in a fantastical environment where anything could happen.

We invite you, challenge you, to enter this world, inhabited by an eclectic array of performers who have taken over the space and are selling their wares. It is up to you whose performance gets your cash. As you roam the building our companies and artists will be competing for your coins, but whether it be 10p or £2 – you choose what you want to spend on their shows.

In a year when British events tell us what our country values – and what it doesn’t – make your judgement and name your price.

The Bush Bazaar comes to town for 3 weeks only, so join us on this rollercoaster ride as the Bush Theatre and Theatre Delicatessen come together in a dazzling explosion of theatrical delights.

Age guidance, 14 +
Entrance price (£10/£8 concessions) gains you entry to the building, and access to the free areas. Beyond this each performance incurs a cost but you are free to set your price (this might be 10p, a £1 etc).

One of the most exciting things about Bush Bazaar is that it’s a unique experience for each audience member, depending on what they choose to see and the interaction they have with the performers. But if you’d like to know a bit more about what to expect and how it will work, please read on and our Q and A will answer your queries. http://www.bushtheatre.co.uk/post/bush_bazaar_what_to_expect/

Misty: The Music Behind Arinzé Kene’s Play

Misty by writer and performer Arinzé Kene blends gig theatre, spoken word, live art and direct address. We asked Arinzé about the music that inspired Misty, a play that confronts the assumptions underpinning the act of telling a story on stage.
