Monday 27th January 2020, 7.30pm, DINA Venue, Cambridge St, Sheffield.
NEXT LEFT, is a new political theatre collective based in Sheffield, assembling immediate responses to current events. In reaction to the General Election result and with an aim to counter dark times with positive action, they will stage their first event on Monday 27th January 7:30pm at DINA on the theme of HOPE.
They are collaborating with local, professional actors, directors and a small technical team, rehearsing during the day and performing script-in-hand in the evening. The idea is inspired by a project called ‘Take Back’ in Manchester and with their blessing they are pleased to offer Sheffield the opportunity to join the conversation.
The event will be a mixture of short scenes, spoken word, poetry and music with the opportunity for discussion and friendly debate (the bar will be open!) – they have encouraged artists from varied cultures, ages and backgrounds to submit their work to be included – on a small scale this time but hope to build broader participation as they progress to each event. Their aim is to build a community and establish a place where positive action sparks creative responses to the current political climate. It’s going to be a long 5 years!
They have no funding, all working for free. This can only be made possible with the generosity of the community of artists which they hope can keep growing stronger. They will charge a small amount for tickets to cover staff costs at the venue.
Tickets are £5 – if you bring a group of 10 people, one goes free – please contact Next Left to get a discount code for this to book online and tell others about it – you can find shareable information on Facebook on the Next Left page:
