WE ARE ALL MADE OF STARS

TALES by BAIT THEATRE

Performed as part of the 2018 University of Greenwich Fresher’s Week, ‘Tales’ was created by Bait Theatre - a company consisting of physical performers Michelle Madsen and Liz Margereson, who met making a feminist street dance piece. Tales is about the stories that make us, a punk feminist quest crafted to explode the tales which trap us - a glitter bomb rave through tall tales and urban myths both old and new.

 

Bait also ran a devising theatre workshop with University of Greenwich Drama students during the week. Click here for a trailer teaser of the show.
