Mermaids. Campfires. Pirates. Clowns. Water and fire. Earth and air. Poems, stories, songs. It’s elemental.

It’s elemental. Sound. Visuals. Poetry. Water and fire (and earth and air). Balance. Elemental is a double-bill of two brand new one-person shows: National Slam Champion Danielle Altrogge’s On The Rocks and award-winning theatre artist Charlie Peters’ Many Fires. Exploring gender, sexuality, and healing, these plays are by turns hilarious, poignant, and everything in between. Artistic disciplines collide fusing poetry, monologue, clown, and puppetry. Both are like nothing you’ve seen before.

A co-production with MuD Collective.
