7.30pm (4pm in Dec) | Pay What You Decide

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.”

LINE UP

POLYESTER BY EMILY SOUTER JOHNSON (Excerpt)
Follow Emily on a heart-warming story of love and laughter back to Dublin, back in time, to the week her father died, “the most fun 5 days of her life” There will be sing-a-longs, stories, laughter and tears all served with a healthy dose of brandy.

Emily Souter Johnson is a solo performer who has been making theatre for the past 5 years. She originally trained as a visual artist, but always gravitated towards the more performative forms. Being Irish is a huge part of her identity and she is interested in work that speaks across the Irish and English cultures, having spent nearly half her life in both countries. She has always loved the tradition of the Irish storyteller and relishes the challenge of transforming this for contemporary theatre.

JAKABOL & MALAIKA KEGODE
Inspired by the energy of bands like Battles and Three Trapped Tigers, Jackabol are an experimental rock band fusing world folk influences with heavy rock riffs and textures. Approaching music like non-verbal storytelling, Jackabol set out to make music that takes themselves and audiences on journeys they aren’t expecting.

For this Sharp Teeth, Jakabol are collaborating with poet, Malaika Kegode, to create a music and poetry sound experiment. Malaika’s work focuses on the magic detail of the everyday and the little lives we all lead. She has worked with organisations such as BBC 1Xtra and Arvon. Her debut collection Requite was published by Burning Eye Books in 2017.

OLLY BIGGS
Olly Biggs is a creator and teller of stories. He uses elements of traditional storytelling to explore the confusing realities of modernity. From a ghost story about ghosting to a tale of urban alienation that centres on one man’s relationship with a vending machine, he seeks to engage with the familiar textures of contemporary life in unconventional ways.
