    The Spalding Suite

    Conceived by Inua Ellams

    Directed by Benji Reid 

    Commissioned by Southbank Centre and Contact

    A new physical theatre show inspired by the UK's basketball sub-culture.

    Watch the trailer here.

    'When we were young, we worshipped stars.
    gleaming long-limbed gods
    framed in the act of impossible flight,
    For a time we tried to follow,
    to carve out our own piece of sky
    with a butter-smooth arc of an arm
    and a Spalding ball glued to the fingertips
    '

    Fresh poetry combined with contemporary movement celebrates the elegance and beauty of basketball.

    Seen from a British perspective, The Spalding Suite gets to the heart and soul of the gravity-defying game and delves into the hopes and dreams of those who play it.

    Six dynamic performers mix live beatboxing, hip-hop, music, moves and poetry, taking us from the fleeting high of the score and the robust camaraderie of the team, to the poignant lows of a body too worn to play the game.

    Poetry by Inua Ellams, Bohdan Piasecki, Jacob Sam-La Rose, Roger Robinson, Nick Makoha and Nii Parkes.

  • The Red Chair playtext - £6.50

    Clod Ensemble
    The Red Chair
    Written & performed by Sarah Cameron
    This intimate new show from Clod Ensemble has a dark, original fairy tale at its heart. The Red Chair is a surreal ballad that tells the story of a man who could not stop eating, the wife doomed to cook his meals and their ‘inveesible’ daughter.
    Join acclaimed writer/performer Sarah Cameron as she takes you on a journey through a world of extreme compulsion and eye watering complacency, where domestic drudgery happens on an operatic scale and a father’s dereliction of duty reaches epic proportions.
    Told in a rich and saucy Scots dialect with physical verve, a musical score that rolls in like the mist over the hills and a wee dram of whisky to oil the way, The Red Chair lies somewhere between a Grimms’ Tale, an absurdist ghost story and a parent’s guide on how not to bring up children.
    £6.50

    For UK purchases P&P is £2.70.

    A special accompaniment to the collaboration between Clod Ensemble and legendary New York performance artist Peggy Shaw. MUST is a poetic look at what it feels like to have a body. It excavates the memories and images contained in the joints and layers of bone and this book does the same – layering Peggy’s words over enigmatic images taken from the body to create a piece of art all to itself.
