7.30pm (11am on 10th Dec) | Pay What You Decide

For the last three and half 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 Spindle Ensemble, Malaika Kegode, Ellie Showering, Craft-D, Madeline Shann, 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.”

Tom is a Bristol-based poet who uses heartfelt honesty and twisting images to create spinning, energetic bursts of words. He poets (it is a verb right?) on a myriad of subjects from pissed-off personifications of nature, to gay people with superpowers. He recently came second in the 2017 National Hammer and Tongue Slam.

Ilana Winterstein is a writer on attachment with the Bristol Old Vic, a writer on Creative England & BFI’s South West Talent Module, and has won numerous awards. “A wonderful voice and stunning play with language” (Lily Williams, Literary Agent at Curtis Brown) and “A gorgeous, original, evocative voice” (Scott Cairns, judge of King Author competition, Ilana was awarded first prize).

Ilana’s work has been performed in venues across the UK, including Tobacco Factory, Pleasance Theatre, The Wardrobe, Old Red Lion, BAC, The Albany, Rich Mix, Tristan Bates and Tara Arts. Her play ‘Sticks and Stones’ was finalist in Old Red Lion’s new writing competition, RedFest 2011. As co-writer her work has been performed in venues including Buxton Opera House and The Lowry.

Ilana will be performing an original story with music by Ben Osborn, which was developed through Open Attic Co’s Tales in the Attic project and will be touring to care homes in the Autumn.

murmeln is the solo musical/literary project of composer/writer Ben Osborn. It is a mix of electronic and acoustic sounds and new writing. Murmeln means mumbling, muttering or marbles in German. Ben Osborn is a musician with Hands of the Heron amongst other bands, as well as a composer for theatre. He’s part of Fellswoop Theatre and has worked with Bristol Old Vic and the Young Vic.

Ben will be joined by Bristol-based folk collective Hands of the Heron, who will release their debut album ‘As We Lingered’ independently on 6th October 2017, with
the video & streaming single ‘Islands’ landing on Friday 22nd September. A busy summer of festival appearances has included Shambala, Boomtown, Brainchild, Valley Fest, Bimble Bandada
and Big Love Festivals.

After a popular run at Skint Theatre Festival earlier this year, Sharp Teeth Theatre present their witty and acerbic short script Troll Hunter. The internet is a dangerous place, but someone’s got to take out the trolls, and it might as well be a teenage girl with a light sabre and a lot of bones to pick.

Black mirror meets Buffy meets Scott Pilgrim in Troll Hunter, directed by Adam Fuller, performed by Katie Storer, written by Stephanie Kempson, additional dramaturgy by Chloe Kitching, with epic sound design by Simon Panrucker (Nickelodeon’s Clarence).
