PILOTnight line-up

24Nov10

PILOT, the West Midlands’ playground for experimental theatre, returns this Thursday with a fresh crop of artists providing Thanksgiving Day treats. Though take note: This will be a turkey-free zone!

November’s PILOT presents a wealth of ideas and theatrical talent from six companies from the West Midlands and beyond. Variously reflective, comic and spectacular, these extracts promise to entertain, surprise and inspire.

Thursday’s exciting line-up includes Kings of England’s poignant and reflective In Elldersfield: Chapter 1, Elegy for Paul Dirac, Blossom Theatre’s Tell Me About Your Ex, which invites audience members to share stories about their former partners and 101 Music-Theatre’s intense musical narrative between ex-lovers Interview A: Interview B. Coventry’s New Macho plan the perfect party with Fearless Enjoyment, Peter Fletcher opens up his family albums in Three Times Hotter than Bournemouth, while funny-mongers The Dog-Eared Collective present their anarchic and darkly surreal brand of interactive comedy in The Dog-Eared Collective & You!

As if this wasn’t enough, providing live music for the evening will be our ‘house-band’, Sam Halmarack & The Miserablites, ambassadors of interactive stadium pop. Get ready for hand-clapping anthems and electro music made to move and inspire. Join in the Feeling!

PILOT is a regular programme of ‘scratch’ nights organised jointly by Sam Fox and Jess Mackinnon of Kindle Theatre, Paul Warwick of China Plate Theatre and guest curators. This edition is co-Piloted by me, Graeme Rose, a founder of theatre companies Stan’s Cafe and The Resurrectionists and a member of The Modified Toy Orchestra.
