Event description

Description

You are invited to an evening organised by Bold Dreams Collective, a group of friends and artists who meet regularly to support each other in realising their dreams. We are seeking a supportive, fun, creativity loving audience!

This time, we are fundraising for the production of a new play, Last Night I Met You Dreaming, by Rebecca Tortora, a magic realist story, about a journalist who uncovers the truth about a dangerous mining operation, with the help of the spirit world. The show combines text, movement, music, illustration, and projection mapping, to tell a story of loss, hope, and rebellion.

This incredible show can only happen with funding! Read more about it below.

At this event , hosted by the glitter-hooved Rebecca Silverman, you’ll have the rare opportunity to hear Emerging Writers & Musicians present new & original work.

New Writing:
An extract of a new play in development by writer Roua Horanieh, a true story from The Moth’s inaugural UK GrandSlam winner Fran Alberry, a performance by writer and storyteller Esther Cann.

New Music
A tender intimate solo guitar performance, from composer Alpheous Little, nature songs from Wild, the cantankerously surreal, porridgely poetic Mollusc Dimension, and cover songs and artwork from theatre maker, Rebecca Tortora.

WHERE/WHEN?
Eastbourne House, London.
Doors open at 7pm.
Suggested amount £10.
Book your ticket now!
The venue has a limited capacity. If we are sold out, you can join the wait list.

DO YOU DREAM OF PERFORMING?
The evening is about dreaming and dreams, ours and yours. If YOU dream of performing there will be a few spaces available for spontaneous performance!

We are aiming to raise £1000 towards the project and to cover venue costs.

DISTANT FRIENDS!
If you can't make the date but want to support the show you can still donate online, email Rebecca on hello@fittoburst.co.uk for details and if you like she'll send you a piece of personalised digital art from the show.

MORE ABOUT LAST NIGHT I MET YOU DREAMING:
The script has been developed from an R and D process with numerous talented artists and is inspired by Isabelle Allende, Naomi Klein and Eve Ensler.

The show is a being produced by Fit to Burst and Upstart Theatre and is programmed to take place at Ovalhouse Theatre as part of their artist's development programme First Bites in June 2018. The aim is to test the script with actors, set, costume, music and projection before going into full production and touring.

We are raising money to match with Arts Council Funding and Ovalhouse, in kind support, in order to deliver projection testing, rehearsals, 3 live performances, open rehearsals for Ovalhouse community, workshops with Ovalhouse Young Company and Ovalhouse Youth Theatre, the production of a trailer and marketing materials to secure tour bookings for 2019. We are working in partnership with the Animation Department at London Metropolitan University.

Thanks so much for your support!
