Chicken Shop Project starts

We've begun research and development workshops for our new Chicken Shop Project - an artistic exploration into chicken shops and what they mean personally, socially, economically, environmentally and ethically.

We're working with four playwrights - Somalia Seaton, Omar El-Khairy (above, talking shop with Michael), Ed Harris and Joseph Coelho - to develop four new short plays that will be performed as part of Islington's Word 2014 festival in May and later in July.


Look ... No Hands

We're very proud of ex-ICT member Hauk Pattison who performed in the National Centre for Circus Arts graduation show last week.

Hauk was a member of ICT for five years before gaining a place at the renowned performance school formerly known as Circus Space.

His performance was reviewed in The Stage, who said:

Look no hands; Hauk Pattison makes his Chinese pole number Aren’t We All harder by introducing an element of escapology.

He has to shrug off a straitjacket while at the top of the pole before he can really begin. Confident and balletic he includes dramatic slides and some interesting choreography.



Daniel's directorial debut

Former ICT member and Young Associate, Daniel Rickler (seen here in his ICT graduation performance, Father's Day) makes his professional directing later this month at the brilliant Rosemary Branch Theatre.  Daniel will be directing Kieren Hurley's acerbic satire on the London Olympics London 2012:Glasgow.

Two LOCOG employees are faced with a dilemma that could potentially spark a war in Korea in this scarily accurate comedic portrayal of the darker side of London 2012. This hard hitting play by Kieran Hurley, winner of the Best New Play at the Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland for BEATS in 2012, addresses the wider injustices young people face in the eyes of the current Tory government.

Tickets for the show are now on sale here.
