DRUNKEN NIGHTS II

DRUNKEN NIGHTS is a series of free live events for pubs and bars. The project provides emerging and early career artists with support and opportunities to create site-based performances for pubs. For DRUNKEN NIGHTS II events will take place at THE OVAL TAVERN in Croydon and THE BELL in Tower Hamlets, and feature a range of artists from around the UK. All events are free and will be compered by Roxy Bourdillon. See below for details…

Initially there were two performance nights: The first was at The Oval Tavern on 30th November, and the second was at The Bell on 14th December. Each night featured work under 10-minutes in length, with a total of 15 artists and companies showing work in the very early stages of development. From these two nights three performances have been selected to receive financial support, rehearsal space and mentoring sessions with established artists David Rosenberg, Karen Christopher and Julian Maynard Smith.
