RADAR DOUBLE BILL: Mess & Where The White Stops

Sold out

Mess

We’re putting on a play. It’s about anorexia, but don’t let that put you off.
Based on Caroline Horton’s own experiences of anorexia, Mess is a show about one person’s journey through anorexia and recovery. The show tells the story of Josephine’s attempt to put on a play that will ‘tackle issues and conquer stigma’, with the help of her good friend Boris and musician Sistahl.
Josephine, Boris and Sistahl are catapulted from the depths of despair and bafflement to the heights of joy and hope and back again as they struggle to tell the story of Josephine’s anorexia and recovery. Mess is a window into an internal world of addiction and control, which is finally rejected for the outside world – messy, chaotic, rich.

The show was devised by the company and written by Caroline Horton. With absurd physical theatre, original songs, and personal struggle; Mess is darkly funny, deeply moving and incredibly bold.
Touring in association with Beat (the UK’s leading charity supporting people with eating disorders). Developed with the help of experts from King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry. [email protected] Arts Centre. Funded by a Wellcome Trust Arts Award and Arts Council England. Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre and Parabola Arts Centre. Supported by Ovalhouse, London.

Where The White Stops

Following a critically acclaimed run in Edinburgh, winners of the Ideastap Underbelly Award 2013 and nominees of this years The Stage BEST ENSEMBLE Award, ANTLER Theatre bring their show Where The White Stops to Bush RADAR Festival.
No-one’s been into the White before. Except Crab. Battling against icy blizzards, and mythical beasts, Crab leaves the safety of her village to journey across a vast and desolate frozen landscape. She’s searching for something else. Where the White stops.
Using polyphonic song and playful physical storytelling, ANTLER tell the great adventure of Crab, and her tragic obsession with the unknown.
