Deborah Pearson

At the centre of Deborah Pearson’s show is a Soviet-sponsored sports comedy. Released in the 1950s, it became tied to a political uprising that made a mark on world history. Using the film as material, Pearson creates a live documentary onstage. Her words form a counterpoint to the movie, fusing the political, the historical and the achingly personal. Riveting, haunting and ultimately inspiring, this performance has toured to ten countries on three continents.

Greg Wohead

Featuring two unrehearsed performers who have never met, Celebration, Florida is a quietly surreal show for anyone who has ever missed anyone or anything.

Veering between reality and simulation, Celebration, Florida orbits around ideas of surrogacy; a stand-in to replace a person you miss, a re-creation of an experience you can’t stop thinking about, nostalgia for a place that never existed.

Greg will speak to you through two performers using pre-recorded audio and headphones. They will know almost nothing about the show when they walk on stage.

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?
