South Cumburgh Green is an urgent piece of theatre, athletically delivered to an audience of now, exploring 21st century British living. A multidisciplinary performance with an ensemble cast, the work will examine a culture of blame: from displacement of love via the internet, to no-win-no-fee claiming sprees, rioting students, bankers bearing the brunt, media influence and simply just… trying to blame it all… on someone… else.

Using a cast of performers all with varied physical and verbal disciplines, we will create a community, an average British suburb of an average British town – creating an allegory of modern life. Statistics from recent census figures will be used to create specifics of the physical and social landscape of the town and its inhabitants.

Cast includes:

Katie Armstrong
Melanie Forbes-Broomes
Robbie Gordon
Scott Houston
Olivia Knowles
Camille Marmie
Gayle Telfer-Stevens

Presented in association with Citymoves Aberdeen and Dance House Glasgow, with support from Creative Scotland. For more information on South Cumburgh Green visit Drew’s website. Having worked for two weeks in Aberdeen and Glasgow, this is the culmination of the second stage of the development residency.
