Gulbenkian closed to the public - Tue 26 Jul to Mon 8 Aug

All our spaces including the Cafe are closed for a conference event between 26 July and 8 Aug inclusive.

Presented by Extraordinary Bodies

Four different bodies collide. A show about how things need to fall apart before they can fall into place.

Their lives are different, but one thing unites them: there’re frustrated with their bodies changing, ageing, aching, no longer obeying. Outraged that they can’t override this. The stage becomes a lab for them to experiment. They climb, hang, balance, slide, collapse, hold and hug. They examine marks life has left on their bodies. In the background, fragments of film and audio mirror these marks in the wounds inflicted on our planet.

Jamie Beddard’s voice as a new writer cuts through the noise. He throws the expected out the window. Instead, he tells us raw, relatable stories about what it means to be delicate. Come experience these characters as they implode, assess the damage, and maybe rebuild themselves. They’re fighting the grind of what’s expected. And you might feel inspired to do the same.

Delicate is BSL interpreted, audio described and captioned. Delicate is a co-production by Extraordinary Bodies, Theatre Royal Plymouth and Figurteatret i Nordland (Nordland Visual Theatre).

ART31

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
