For the last four 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, one from each genre. Recent nights have included Spindle Ensemble, Malaika Kegode, Ellie Showering, Craft-D, Wilf Merttens, Lucy Harrington, Claire Murphy, 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.”

2 O’CLOCK BEAUTY QUEENS
The 2 O’Clock Beauty Queens are an unapologetic female dance collective bringing confrontational routines to tunes from iconic female legends: Madonna, Chaka Khan, Annie Lennox. Their choreography spans contemporary, commercial and neo burlesque. Champions of female form, sexuality and self love. The Beauty Queens challenge and resist formal conventions of gender, revising attitudes towards female sexuality in the public eye. They are here to make an impact.
Claire trained in physical theatre at Jacques Lecoq in Paris and is now embarking on her debut one woman show. Intolerable Side Effects is an absurd, comic, yet poignant exploration of the darker side of contraception through the eyes (and ears) of the inimitable Diane, a white rabbit.
Marchant’s poetry resonates with people, as seen by the stunning response to his appearance on BBC’s Autumnwatch.
“I love words: they swim in my head and only surface when I write on my letter board.”
As an installation poet, Marchant’s recent exhibition “Conversations With Trees” gave people a different view of trees and, ultimately, of themselves.
“I share my silence with trees. Trees see me; sceptres that
wait and witness, rooted. In the budding and the falling of
leaves, I find my words shaped by the trees to spread into
the world of voices. This is how I found you and why I
write, to connect with people.”
Classically trained at choir school, Chris went on to study music at university but it was the humble ukulele which helped him fall in love with songwriting. Chris is a composer who has written for ad campaigns, and TV as well as independent video games & film. He also co-runs “Tonic”, a monthly music and poetry event in Bristol. Chris now performs with “Joe”, his electric-acoustic tenor ukulele. The dynamic duo write from the heart; songs about movies, weird dreams, bad house parties and their favourite season, Autumn.
