Drew McOnie is fast becoming one of the most sought-after choreographer's in the UK and is to launch his own theatre-dance company. This hot-blooded new Theatre-Dance company aims is to bridge the gap between musical theatre and pure dance audiences, bringing passionate and accessible dance productions to as many people as possible
For it's inaugural production, The McOnie Company presents Drunk, an intoxicating journey through some of history’s greatest tipples, and the victims who fall prey to their mood altering qualities.
Celebrating one of man’s greatest vices, Drunk is a wickedly delicious cocktail of theatre and dance, from the ‘Shots’, the stag do lads with an aggressive case of 'little man syndrome'; to ‘Vodka’, the ageing and diet conscious Russian actress living in the faded glamour of her past, Drunk is an irreverent and affectionate look at what the drink we order says about us.
With an original score from award-winning composer Grant Olding, a live band and a talented company of dancers that will pop your cork, Drunk is a frenetic dance-drama that explores the relationship we have with our ultimate drug of choice: alcohol. Get ready; this is theatre dance under the influence.
With a mayoral election just behind us and a referendum ahead, questions of identity are being posed more than ever across the country. Our picks of the week’s events explore different notions of identity, from the refugee camp at Calais to America’s misrepresented minorities. Our other choices look at a single businessman’s life unraveling on a trip to London and how technology is shaping our lives.
Writer and director Whit Stillman's new film Love & Friendship is an adaption of Jane Austen's little-known posthumous novella Lady Susan, about the “the biggest flirt in all England”. We catch up to talk about being pigeonholed, working in Dunkin' Donuts, and why he prefers comedies.
