Hannah Leighton-Boyce

Hannah Leighton-Boyce’s works range from site-specific and ephemeral actions, to drawing, sound and installation. Her working methods combine material and process-led exploration with present day and archival research. Through these she explores place, object and body relations through themes of surface and erasure, embodiment and connectivity.

20 Stories High

Nikki doesn’t think that her Dad is a racist, he just cares deeply about his community.

But when a Zimbabwean family move in over the road, the dog won’t stop barking, the local kids start lobbing stones, and her Dad starts laying down the law.

This provocative and engaging show from digs deep at the heart of racial tensions in the UK today.

Written by award winning writer Keith Saha, with lyricism and live DJ soundscapes from Chunky and the raw talent of Abby Melia – this is a vital and challenging piece of theatre.

Ventoux is the most fearsome mountain encountered on the Tour de France.

It is also the story of Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani – whose drug-fuelled race there in 2000 was the greatest cycling had ever seen. Ventoux charts the parallel lives of these champions who overcame great adversity in tandem, and the mountain that cast them in opposing directions.

Join 2Magpies as they restage the race using breathtaking video accompaniment and a pair of road bikes, asking the question – how far will we go to succeed?

“The performance is a true Tour de Force”
