Where: Battersea Arts Centre
How much?: £150
Theatre Ad Infinitum are an international theatre ensemble whose previous productions Translunar Paradise, Ballad of the Burning Star, Light and Bucket List have taken them around the world and to the forefront of critic’s ‘must-see’ lists. With many awards to their name and a host of five star reviews for each one of their shows, Theatre Ad Infinitum are one of the most exciting companies making work today.
Making Theatre Without Words intensive master class for professional and semi-professional actors, directors and theatre practitioners, led by Theatre Ad Infinitum’s Co-Artistic Directors, Nir Paldi and George Mann.
This weekend workshop explores how the actor in an empty space can use the body to create character, spaces, emotions, poetry, and atmospheres, and ultimately tell stories – without words. You will search for a gestural language, explore mime, try to find comedy, tragedy, and poetics and much more, and look for a visual and non-verbal theatre style that excites and fires the imagination. The workshop will culminate in the creation of short devised performances that experiment with newfound discoveries in a theatre without words.

NB: places will be confirmed on a first come, first served basis

Ad Infinitum Create ‘Run’, part of Bruford’s New Writing Season, Bargehouse, London
Run – a new devised production
8 – 11 June 2016 | Bargehouse, London
In a unique Victorian warehouse in London, rarely opened to the public in its entirety, Theatre Ad Infinitum collaborated once more with Rose Bruford College to bring a new devised piece, Run, to the annual New Writing Season performed by the graduates in the School of Performance’s Acting and Actor Musicianship programmes.
Following last year’s Britain Ltd, we were delighted to create, Run, a new piece exploring the ongoing refugee crisis, alongside two other new writing productions directed by Bush Theatre and Theatre 503.
KRISTIN LAVRANSDATTER: a new adaptation | August 2015
Each year, The North Wall Summer Residency unites emerging artists aged 18 – 25 with a professional theatre company to form a brand new ensemble with the aim of exploring ideas and developing new work.
In August 2015 we were thrilled to be invited by The North Wall to lead the project. Together with this new ensemble, we focused on the creation of a new piece of theatre, inspired by the Norwegian Nobel Prize winning novel, Kristin Lavransdatter, by Sigfrid Undset. It’s an epic tale following the extraordinary life story of a woman trying to swim against the tide, set in the dark and frozen landscape of 14th century Norway.
We’re very excited about sharing this piece, it’s turning into something special thanks to the team of talent we’ve been working with. We hope you can join us to see the culmination of our three-week Summer Residency.
Performances of ‘Kristin’:
7-8 Aug 2015 | 7pm | The North Wall, Oxford
Theatre Ad Infinitum Direct a New Devised Piece for the Rose Bruford New Writing Season June 2015
Welcome to Britain Ltd.
Britain Ltd is our dream; a reality you won’t believe exists – though it does; a place that makes us strong and purges our weaknesses; its a mountain without a summit; its a population that continually strives to get to the top; Britain Ltd makes us the best we can be: its everything we ever hoped for.
Where do you want to be? Britain Ltd of course. We know you’ve got it in you.
The next generation of actors and actor musicians performed in three new plays in association with The Bush Theatre, Theatre 503 and Theatre Ad Infinitum. Britain Ltd is brand new devised piece from a collaboration with the third year undergraduate acting course at Rose Bruford, and Theatre Ad Infinitum.
It was performed for a week at Bargehouse in London, June 2015. To find out more about The New Writing Season an Rose Bruford, click here.
THEATRE AD INFINTUM DIRECTS THE BAC HOMEGROWN COMPANY 4-6 DEC 2014
A New Devised Production ‘Directors Cut’
Battersea Arts Centre | 4-6 Dec 2014 | 7.30pm
Join us to see a young troupe of 13-21 year old performers take on physical theatre under the direction of George Mann to explore a visual-theatrical language that comes straight out of cinematic history. Inspired by multiple film genres and investigating how theatre can edit, cut and use moving images to tell stories, the troupe will perform a series of their own unseen movies they’ve made from scratch. Drama, comedy, darkness, horror, rom-com, tragedy or face-paced action – anything’s possible! Come and witness a performance that will provoke your imagination and reimagine the magic of the movies like you’ve never seen before.
It’s pay what you can, and Homegrown performances always sell out – so make sure you phone the box office and book your ticket! Box Office: 0207 223 2223 | bac.org.uk
