performing research

7pm, 26th May – Northern Stage. Tickets: £5 call 0191 230 5151

Discover innovative, enthralling and surprising performances where the newest ideas meet theatre.

Come and see three brand new short pieces of theatre, created with researchers from Newcastle University.

For the past six weeks theatre makers Cap-a-Pie have been discovering the newest ideas and the latest thinking from academics at Newcastle University.

In one hour we will take you through a huge range of topics. We will be showing you performances based on

  • the migratory behaviour of birds and humans
  • how people curate and edit their lives for future generations
  • and how scientists are working to protect us from bad bacteria that can attack our gut when all the good bacteria have been wiped out by antibiotics.

All performed by the researchers, in one hour at Northern Stage.

The performance will be followed by a post show discussion where you can tell us what you thought about the show and find out more about the research the show is based on. Tickets: £5
