Pod

About the event
Pod artwork - the moving silhouette of a man with a bowed head against an orange background

This unique live-streamed production, developed with the cast of Guildhall actors, weaves together bold street-style choreography and a colourful array of characters within an immersive club setting.

“We’re like family, baby, a collective little pod… only you don’t have to be blood to feel the vibration. It just shakes when we’re together”

A club night. A secret. A moment to shine.

Figures converse through House music for an epic ride of rhythm and connection.

But when brutal truths are revealed, the nocturnal crowd must check more than their bodies at the door.

As an ill-fated love story emerges, the bombastic dance scene sheds new light on hidden histories, the natural habits of orcas, and the complexities of negotiating one’s chosen family.

This unique, live-streamed piece of theatre is created and directed by Jamie Bradley and Vicki Igbokwe – the team behind Guildhall School's celebrated 2019 production Provok'd: A Restoration – and devised with the Company.
