ANATOMY brings back our mega performance cabaret double bill, one show for adults and one for kids. It’s our regular 17+ performance variety and an ANATOMY matinee for kids aged 0-5s and their friends of all ages, and you can apply to either or both on the theme of BREAKING NEWS. How do you break the news to a toddler? How can a toddler teach you to break the news into tiny pieces? How can you play the best game of putting it back together in strange new ways?

Our special Sunday matinee for 0-5s (and everybody else) is back! We’ve curated a weird and wonderful line-up of performance made especially with the early years in mind. Featuring laughter and dance, magic and music, we’re on a mission to make wonderful art that can entertain and enthrall every age of human. It’s a relaxed environment where strange and silly things can happen, with a bit of crafting, a bit of performance, and some playful questions about what those screens are that people keep staring at.

We have buggy parking, step-free access, accessible toilets, an open door policy so you can come and go as needed, and BSL interpretation.

The satyrs are braying. Half human and half goat, they sip the headlines from staticky televisions and pour their newswine up into phones and tablets. Each comic belch and teasing tail-swish reverberates across the world. Have you marked yourself safe yet? They build towering emoji monoliths to which we flock, hungry for the truth. Resistance arises, of course: ‘Which 60s revolutionary hero are you?’ You might have fifteen unread notifications right now: you’d better check.

Astonishing work in dance, sound, performance, drag, rope & more more more

WITH Cottrell & Mills, Faux Theatre, Jordan & Skinner, King Biff & Lars, and Kasia Zawadzka
