This November we’re packing up and heading down the M4 to Exeter for our first ever city-wide FuelFest in partnership with The Bike Shed and The Phoenix. During the week-long mini city-takeover we will present a curated programme of theatre that is a true celebration of the breadth of our recent work. FuelFest Exeter will explore themes around identity, immigration, integration and the role of women. There will be puppetry and sea shanties, 3D binaural soundscapes and conversations with the future. You can expect discussion and debate in community centres, intimate experiences in the pitch dark and a night out for the whole family.
- The Hartlepool Monkey at Exeter Pheonix
- Fiction at The Bike Shed Theatre Exeter
- To Those Born Later at Wonford Community Centre Exeter
- Portrait at The Bike Shed Exeter
- An Evening with an Immigrant at The Bike Shed Exeter
We’ve designed the programme so that it would be entirely possible to see every single show in the Festival over the course of the week and we’re hoping that the citizens of Exeter and its surroundings will take up the challenge.
The Bikeshed’s famous cocktail bar will be serving a specially created Fuelfest Cocktail throughout the week (whatever they put in it it’ll have to be pink) and we’re looking forward to propping up the bar and hearing what audiences in the South West think of the shows.
