WATCH OUT is Cambridge’s showcase of experimental theatre with something to say, developed as part of Cambridge Junction’s ongoing commitment to supporting contemporary performance from local, regional and nationally based artists.
Hosted by bearded drag lady Timberlina, this year’s festival will be packed with world premieres, previews and new work from performing artists based in Cambridge, the UK and abroad.
Highlights include the Edinburgh Fringe smash hit Mouthpiece, Nightclubbing, an explosive new performance embracing Afrofuturism and the cult of Grace Jones, and Figs in Wigs performing a live art adaptation of Little Women [Little Wimmin] supported by The Stobbs New Ideas Fund.
There will also be Essex-based artist Roxanne Carney talking frankly about what it is like to be a young millennial in modern Britain in I’m The Hero of The Story, and Black Holes, a new piece co-commissioned by Cambridge Junction.
The Place and Chisenhale Dance Space by Seke Chimutengwende and Alexandrina Hemsley will combine spoken word and movement to retell the history of the universe.
Throughout the day, the Cambridge Junction foyer will be taken over by Cruising For Art, a performance installation created by Brian Lobel featuring the work of local artists, each presenting a short one-on-one performance.
There will also be music all day from Cambridge female DJ collective You Know It Makes Sense.
The event takes place on Saturday 26th of May. Tickets are available to buy here.
