PWYDFor the last two years Sharp Teeth Theatre have been bringing together theatre, storytelling, poetry and music to create a night of riotous Sunday fun. They’ve had raps about stolen bikes, poems about cottaging, performances from drag kings, new writing about women who climb the shard, and improvised storytelling about Lance Armstrong getting lost in a bathtub of meat, amongst many other things.

Each night features four acts, recently including Rebecca Tantony, Malaika Kegode, Chris White, In Bed With My Brother, Propolis Theatre, Red Ray, Sam Grudgings, Katie Storer, and more – the best of local and not so local talent. And it’s all Pay What You Decide!

Check out line-ups online, and come on down for an evening of joyous art, like a variety show, but better, better, better!

“We were spoilt as the bill threw up outstanding humourous and thought provoking acts.”

Jausmė, (pron. Yo-s-meh), or Jausmė is a pioneer/vocalist/songwriter/harpist, hailing from the Baltic lands of Lithuania, who creates unique sounds infused with folklore, soul and jazz along with the Kanklės, a traditional Lithuanian 29 steel stringed harp. Her style is best described as ‘experimental folk’ or ‘urban etherealism’ which incorporates soulful melodies and lyrics in both English and her mother tongue.


Dominique Fester & Students
Outside of Wardrobe favourite Beyond the Ridiculous Dominique Fester also works as a Lecturer teaching Physical Theatre. Recently she ran the first in a series of ten week courses entitled ‘Introduction To Physical Theatre’, this piece features several of her course graduates applying their skills to tackling a poem by Aisha Ali, and using it as their inspiration for a piece which is predominantly translated into movement. Aisha is an ensemble member, who recently performed a story in Sharp Teeth, and her untitled poem explores grief and loss. More info about the next course Dominique is running can be found at

Imogen Downes & Erica England
Before Christmas Imogen and Erica performed a beautiful story with music as part of Tobacco Factory Theatre-makers Children & Young People showcase for 14-19 yr olds. Their version of the Six Swans told through spoken word and accompanied by piano was absolutely stunning. Six Swans is a Grimm’s Tale about the many evils of stepmothers, and the lengths we’ll go to to save our loved ones.

Imogen played the leading role in Bristol Old VIc Young Company’s The Love of the Nightingale, and is a very talented young spoken word artist. Erica England is a talented performer and musician who is part of ITV West Workshops and the BFI young filmmakers academy, leaving us asking if there is anything she can’t do?

In July, Sharp Teeth is bringing together 8 artists and musicians and challenging them to create four new short performances which cross-genre, space and time! Poets will mingle with musicians and theatre-makers, musicians will mix audio-visual artists, and storytellers will fraternise with dancers. Check soon to find out which artists we’re working with. This will be a ticketed event.
