CLOUT!'19 / A Rock'n'Roll Suicide / The Tropicalia Island

A Rock'n'Roll Suicide
Theatre of the Wild, Beautiful and Damned
created by Lee Jones and Dan Coleman
performed by Lee Jones

Ziggy Stardust takes us on a tragical Mystery Tour through the life of a nearly- was- Rock star, Gypsy Lee Pistolero, AKA Lee Mark-Jones! This one man- show plays out against a backdrop of videos and scenes from his early life, our jaded, ageing rocker sings along with his young pretty self and belts out songs from Punk to the Present, from an initially glamtastic, then tragic Rock N Roll career. It’s a tale of anarchy, rage, sadness and laughter.  It’s a struggle between damnation and salvation. Its story of a man who comes to terms with himself after the diagnosis of a condition that unknown to him, has defined his life. Join us on this autobiographical roller coaster and see for yourselves what Ziggy Stardust is finally revealed to be. Co-starring Lemmy, Slash, Axl Rose, Blondie, Joey Ramone and Joan Jett amongst others. Upon alter ego Ziggy Stardust's revelation to be his undiagnosed ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) condition, deep soul searching, self-questioning, recriminations, rage and confusion but also hope, clarity and understanding unfolds? Triumph over tragedy? You decide! From the Council estates of Kidderminster to Beverley Hills and back? Also featuring a special guest appearance by Chris Thorpe, as the voice of Mr. Punch, the puppet of truth.

The Tropicalia Island
created by Tropical Company (Fernanda Mandagará and Ramiro Silveira)
performed by Fernanda Mandagará, Charlotte Laporte, Leanne Shorley and Sophie MacArthur


A mud flood has devasted the world. Only three safe places remain: Himalayas, North Pole and Tropicalia Island. Amanda Ferreira is the native emigration officer receiving refugees (the audience) willing to flee from their submersed countries to seek asylum in her tropical paradise. Of course, there are rules and it won't be easy for the ‘exotic white’ people to fit in. Directed by Ramiro Silveira, Tropicalia Island is a modern allegory of our times, full of music, dance, audience interaction and irony. Stereotypes underline real perceptions in a world where the absurdity of the situations provokes laughter and awareness of the crude reality of asylum seekers. Tropicalia Island is a warn, a punch of reality. It is musical, contagious and surreal. It is a tropical dark comedy where sexism, xenophobia, homophobia and bigotry are twisted and revisited. Tropicalia Island is a show in a set made of inflatables, fake coconut trees and cocktails, where the audience, who is divided in three groups (red, blue and yellow) is invited to participate. An evening of laughter and surprises. A tropical escape to reality. Will you be accepted? Apply for your Visa now.

CLOUT!'19 / Jeu Jeu la Foille’s Frontal Lobotomy / George

Jeu Jeu la Foille’s Frontal Lobotomy

created and performed by Victoria Hancock
 

Visual storytelling and poetry, with a Tom Waits inspired soundtrack and a smattering of weird science. Burlesque maverick Jeu Jeu la Foille fuses original beat poetry with Waitsian tormented lullabies and woozy mythology; punctuated with scientific accounts of transorbital lobotomy, and featuring a toyshop orchestra of musical reprobates.


George
created by Contingency Theatre
performed by Barbara Blanka, Igor Smith and Max Percy 
sound and lighting design by Ian White and Edward Justham

A surrealist physical theatre-satire on the ambitions of work culture and graduate prospects. GEORGE meets grotesque characters at every turn, misshapen by his same anxiety. Hungry for relief GEORGE meets “J”. Who is J? No one knows. But as the city dwellers catch on, they come sniffing like wolves...

CLOUT!'19 / Sweet Like Chocolate Boy

Sweet Like Chocolate Boy
presented by Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu

produced By Playback Drama

performed by Alice Fofana, Bernard Mensah, Jade Hackett and Michael Fatogun


Mars is a street-smart, enthusiastic, lyrically saturated young man on the way to propose to the girl of his dreams...and join a Black lives matters march to woo her for good measure . But on the way, he meets a barrage of characters - both alive and undead - questioning his heart , head, health and hubris in the London borough of Obsidian.

On the other side, Bounty is a very quiet boy in the very loud borough of Obsidian - but in the 80s and 90s. Living in a strict household, he is in constant awe of the politically charged Black world around him. It is all spiritually explosive stuff; but as Bounty witnesses deaths & births, riots & carnivals, love & indifference - he questions whether he is has both the strength and will to survive.

As the worlds of Mars & Bounty collide, can they find their place in these times or will they get chewed, swallowed and digested by it?

Sweet Like Chocolate Boy, is a storytelling epic that melts timelines, lives, fantasy, garage, jungle and brings to the boil the broiling estates of London.
