Cape Wrath

Synopsis:
An epic journey in a stationary minibus. Join 14 other passengers for a story of family, of fellow travellers, of whisky and chocolate, of the longest bus journey in Britain. Heartfelt, moving and compellingly intimate. After he retired, my granddad went on a trip from the Midlands up to Cape Wrath, the most north-westerly point of his native Scotland. He sat, looked at the sea, and thought about his life. then he got up and went home. Over 20 years later, I got on a coach and followed in his footsteps. This is what I learned.

Paradise Project, The

Synopsis:
Imagine a place better than where you are. Every day they come in and try again. They try to figure out how to live together. They start to build something that will never be completed, at least not within their own life times. And everyday it works. Or it doesn't. Well, it depends how you measure it. So today, today they will try something different. The Paradise Project is full of wit, intelligence and humanity. Join Third Angel (Sheffield) and mala voadora (Lisbon) for a show about following instructions, inventing your own rules, and keeping trying.

Conceived and devised by Jorge Andrade, Josť Capela, Alexander Kelly, Chris Thorpe & Rachael Walton

Presumption

Synopsis:
Presumption captures a young couple at the moment when they realise that their relationship has become comfortable rather than passionate, habitual rather than Dramatic. against the backdrop of an insignificant quarrel, they examine their relationship and their willingness or not to accept its limitations. Third angel's work is always visually interesting and here the mental exertions are mirrored by the performers' physical efforts as they struggle on and off the stage with an ever-increasing collection of domestic detritus. the piece is likely to resonate with young adult audiences.

What I Heard About the World

Synopsis:
a theatre piece with two songs: one original, one karaoke. In What I Heard about the World, Sheffield based Third angel and Lisboa's mala voadora attempt to map a sphErical planet onto a (very big) flat piece of paper. the three narrators set out to catalogue every country, to share stories and name names, in a show that wonders what future we are making for ourselves. Throughout 2010, Third angel and mala voadora are collected stories from around the world.
