A Bunch of Amateurs by Ian Hislop & Nick Newman, 25th January 2018 to 27th January 2018, 19:45 to 22:45 at Headgate Theatre, 14 Chapel Street North, Chapel Street North, Colchester (18.4 miles)
Ian Hislop and Nick Newman's hit comedy is coming to the Headgate. Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford - only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village, and instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson's monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson's career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself - along with his inner Lear! Contains some strong language!

Constructions of Thin Air, 26th January 2018, 19:30 at DanceEast, Jerwood DanceHouse, Ipswich, Suffolk, Foundry Lane, Ipswich (10.1 miles)
Nine performers merge contemporary dance, physical theatre and everyday objects to transform the stage into shifting architectural landscapes. Constructions of Thin Air unfolds in two acts: the first asks questions about the notion of belonging to systems, whether political, economic, or social; the second provokes thoughts on the notion of home, family and identity. Tilted Productions creates playful and challenging cross-art form collaborations that reimagine the familiar and open up fresh, poetic perspectives on the world we live in. Created by Tilted�s Artistic Director Maresa von Stockert in collaboration with an intergenerational cast, this new work for the stage evolved from the company�s acclaimed outdoor promenade piece BELONGING(s).

Funded by Arts Council England and Ipswich Borough Council. The creation process was supported by 101 - Outdoor Arts Creation Space, Newbury, and DanceEast, Ipswich.

Duration: 80 minutes, including interval.

Following The Happiness Project, which launched her company at DanceEast in 2016, Dutch-born Didy Veldman's new production is The Knot, an examination of the social and personal significance of marriage in contemporary Western society.
The Umanoove dancers interpret this theme through a supremely physical and theatrical dance language, looking at what a wedding means, how it feels, the role of ritual, doubt, religion, gender and Walt Disney. With music from Stravinsky and Ben Foskett, The Knot will create the atmosphere of a large wedding party in which the performers are the bride, groom, best man and bridesmaids, and the audience are the guests.
Commissioned by DanceEast, with support from Studio Wayne McGregor through the FreeSpace programme and funds from Arts Council England, Linbury Trust, The Master Charitable Trust The Marina Kleinwort Trust, Beth Krasna and an anonymous donor.
