Under Stokes Croft

Tue 25th – Thu 27th Oct 2011


“Unknown to most, there is a large, clumsy, furry orange monster living in Stokes Croft”





From The Ferment...


Freshly plucked from their first outings in our July Ferment Festival, we are delighted to be sharing the next step in the theatrical journeys of these brand-new projects with you, our audience.

As if by magic, both are stories of where we live. One a tale of Bristol, the other a celebration of whichever town you call home.

We're excited about these artists. And we hope you will be too.

Come and find out. And tell us what you think...

Unknown to most, there is a large, clumsy, furry orange monster living in Stokes Croft, Bristol's dilapidated graffiti-scrawled cultural quarter. By day, he watches over it's people and records their stories. By night, he wanders alone and paints their dreams. Or nightmares. A live graphic novel with stop-motion animation by MC and Poet Jack Dean, Under Stokes Croft takes inspiration from Dylan Thomas' legendary Under Milk Wood to document 24-and-a-bit hours in the life of Bristol's own Bohemia, centering around the infamous night of 21st April 2011: the Tesco riots.

Expect fires, fears, fligths and top-notch veggie burgers.

Developed with support from Bristol Ferment.

Guest poets: James Bunting (25 Oct), Vanessa Kisuule (26 Oct) & Jeremy Toombs (27 Oct).

Admission: £7
