What should I see?

Not sure how to plan your festival? We’ve asked two members of Little Angel Theatre to give you some pointers:

Chris Wootton, General Manager, recommends…

David Duffy, Technical Manager, recommends…

Kate McBain, Digital Content and Live Arts Strategist, recommends…

With over 25 companies to choose from, it might be a little daunting deciding what to see. That’s why we have broken the programme up into four threads – four stories or groupings of stories to help you decide what to see:

Wisdom and Wonder

Inspiring, moving and touching stories. Revel in the beauty of life, the complexity of our very human relationships and the things in life which divide us from ourselves.

Skulls and Skeletons

Dive into an ethereal and atmospheric collection of stories. Shriek at the unearthly, the inhumane, the lewd and depraved. Take control over a puppet’s destiny and get wrapped up in suspense.

Fairies and Goblins

Enter strangely familiar worlds where nothing is quite what it seems. Where love is found in mysterious and unlikely objects, and modern day life becomes a commonplace fairy-tale.

Trick or Treat

It’s nearly Halloween. Are you ready to let your hair down and treat yourself to a bloody good night out? These shows are filled with debauchery, cabaret, clowns, music, shadows and of course, a whole host of nightmarish puppets plus a dose of audience bravery.

What if I want to learn more about the shows and meet the people who made them?

suspense 2015 features a huge array of post-show discussions, lectures and discussions – all of which are completely free to attend. See the programme here.

Sounds great, but I’d love to gain some new skills and receive training from the artists that are performing as part of the festival – can I do that?

You’re in the right place. suspense 2015 has invited a number of world class artists to give workshops and masterclasses alongside their shows. Learn about improvisation, directing… and much more. Click here for more details.
