Watch Out Festival Lineup
WATCH OUT is Cambridge Junction’s celebration of the fresh and the experimental, the unusual and the risqué
Cambridge Junction is pleased to announce that its popular WATCH OUT Festival is to take place again on Saturday 25 May.
WATCH OUT is Cambridge Junction’s celebration of the fresh and the experimental, the unusual and the risqué picked as part of the arts centre’s ongoing commitment to the development of contemporary performance from regional, national and international artists. The programme consists of a showcase of performances, all rooted in the desire to take risks with new ideas.
Finnish/ Egyptian artist Samira Elagoz brings her hit show Cock Cock… Who’s There? to the festival following a hugely successful Edinburgh run last year where it scooped a Total Theatre Award. Based on her personal experience of rape, Elagoz takes the audience on her journey of regaining power and attempts to relate to men.
Award-winning French choreographer Lola Maury returns to Cambridge following her recent performance at the Cambridge Buddhist Centre with BROUHAHA, a new piece which mixes voice, multi-channel composition and movement.
Returning to the festival are the “achingly hip and terrifyingly savage” (The Guardian) theatre company Made In China with a work in progress sharing of new piece Smithereens, as well as collaborator and WATCH OUT stalwart Ira Brand with new show Ways To Submit.
Belgian dance artist Hannah De Meyer will present Levitations, a piece where hope and despair, being and not being, sexuality, love and death rub shoulders.
Following her hugely popular Triple Threat Lucy McCormick is back with an extract of her latest show Life: Live! – a subversive, immersive narrative concept album about a woman who gets overwhelmed in a supermarket.
This year’s festival is hosted by London based performance artist Vijay Patel, who is noted for his boundary crossing cabaret performances.
Meatless, Guerilla Kitchen’s sister van will be serving food outside the venue, with cocktails and craft ale available inside, and an after party in the form of Luca Rutherford’s Political Party Disco.
Cambridge Junction Arts Producer Daniel Kok said:
“We’re excited to announce the line-up for WATCH OUT 2019 – come join us for a day of disruptive theatre and dance from renowned UK and international artists. It’s an exciting opportunity for audiences to experience new work and see award winning performances all in one place. See you at the bar.”
