The Ovalhouse has announced its new Autumn season titled ‘Fabulism’, which is a form of magical realism in which elements of fantastical elements are placed into an everyday setting. During this season, the Ovalhouse will open its doors to the possibility to Fabulism, making ordinary things extraordinary.
Featured in this imaginative new season at the theatre will be:
Slip of Steel’s How does a snake shed its skin? – This one woman show that looks at Margaret Thatcher, Marilyn Monroe and Virginia Woolf. A show that has been created from diaries, letters and to-do lists by these three very different women.
Dark and Lovely by Selina Thompson – Examining what it means to be black, a woman and British, Selina Thompson looks at these topics through afro hair through politics, its history and its connotations.
Invisible Treasure by fanShen – This show creates an interactive digital playspace where our actions change everything. It is a production which examines human relationships, power structures and individual agency.
then LEAP by Laura Lindow – Looks at our almost forgotten past and how we struggle to let it go. It is a piece which shows that sometimes you have to go backwards to move on. It’s about taking a chance.
The Fabulism season will run at the Ovalhouse Theatre from the 7th October until the 28th November. It will be joined by seven First Bites, the Ovalhouse’s programme of exciting new works in development. These pieces give audiences a look at some of the work that the theatre might be supporting in the coming months as well as giving audiences a chance to offer their feedback as to what the piece will become.
Tickets for the season are priced at £12 (£7 concessions), while all First Bite tickets are £5.
