This showcase of new theatre features four works in progress and a drop-in installation, as part of the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award final, your chance to catch a glimpse of the strong vision and original ideas of a new generation of artists.

Amy Draper
These Trees are Made of Blood
1978. With the world watching, Argentina has won the World Cup and patriotism is running riot. So come on in – the club’s open all hours, drinks are cheap and the music hot.  After some development time at BAC, director Amy Draper continues exploring her cabaret style show about Argentina's Disappeared, which intertwines live music and narrative.

Hannah Bruce
The Look of The Thing
Headphones bring a narrator's voice close inside each audience member's head, creating an intimate soundworld. As the audience cross the threshold into this liminal world, they become artful voyeurs, wrapped in the interplay of movement, light, architecture and sound. The encounter is a combination of meditation and exploration.

Kristin & Davy McGuire
Davy and Kristin McGuire are an award-winning Bristol based director, designer and performer duo who work in the fields of art, animation, theatre, dance and film-making.

There are Snakes
Based on the book by Daniel Everett, There Are Snakes explores the experiences of a linguist and Christian missionary, as he struggles to master the language of the Pirahă tribe in the Amazon rainforest. Everett's discoveries end up blowing apart Noam Chomsky’s theory of language, forcing him to reimagine what it means to be human and change his life forever.
