No Frills

dotdotdot dance uses flamenco as a medium to create innovative dance, challenge conventional perceptions and explore how traditional flamenco can be expressed in a contemporary context.

In No Frills, they set out to strip flamenco down to its bare essence to access and express the raw and nuanced energy that is awoken in both performer and spectator. The show has toured the UK three times, winning the Buxton Fringe Dance Award in 2014 and 2015.

dotdotdot dance performed at Sadler’s Wells, London in 2016 as part of the Wild Card Festival and 2017 in Sampled, followed by performances at The Lowry, Salford.

The Crucible

Arthur Miller’s classic allegory of ‘The House of Un-American Activities’ set against the true and bloody events of the Salem Witch Trials is perhaps more relevant today that it has even been.

Christ’s Hospital Senior pupils present this restaging of ‘The Crucible’ in-the-round, where the audience will become judge, jury and executioner in examining the rumours of the occult and the strange goings on in the woodlands of Salem.

Expect tension, passion and commitment from this talented young company as they put a new twist on this brilliant play.

The War of the Worlds

"No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's…”

And fewer would have believed in the first years of the twenty-first century that H. G. Wells’ science fiction classic would be performed live by just four actors with intelligences lesser than average…

The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons invade the stage in this funny yet faithful new adaptation as they use musical instruments, puppetry and, um, enthusiasm to recreate deadly heat-rays, giant fighting-machines, squidgy tentacled Martians and interplanetary warfare on an epic scale.

The chances of success? A million to one…

“Part alternative rock band, part thespian… wholly charming” The Times
