BAC at Summerhall - Free

Sun 21st – Sat 27th Aug 2011


“Take Out is a brand new ingredient of BAC’s approach to its mission to invent the future of theatre”





Battersea Arts Centre (BAC)


Take Out is a brand new ingredient of BAC’s approach to its mission to invent the future of theatre. As well as cooking up ideas through weekly Scratch Nights, and tucking in to major productions across its building in Battersea, BAC will now present a broad-reaching programme called BAC Take Out. This will include some of the best shows cooked up at BAC and made available to sites and venues across London, nationally and internationally.

Featuring four British Council Showcase shows, BAC Take Out in Edinburgh presents a rich programme of work by some of BAC’s most innovative artists. The programme will be presented in partnership with Summerhall, an exciting new venue based in the former Edinburgh veterinary school under the artistic directorship of Rupert Thomson, former participant in BAC’s The Independents programme. After Edinburgh these shows will be available as part of BAC Take Out to national and international venues.

BAC Take Out programme at Summerhall includes:

• every minute, always - Melanie Wilson and Abigail Conway

• Hannah Ringham’s Free Show (bring money) by Glen Neath

• On Ways to Disappear - Me and the Machine

• Rotating in a Room of Images - Lundahl & Seitl

• The Car – BAC Beatbox Academy

• The Loveliness Principle – Coney

• the moment I saw you I knew I could love you - Curious

BAC will also be bringing scratch to a secret space in the heart of Summerhall; an intimate former anatomy lecture hall. A series of artists, including Josie Long, Kate Tempest and Amy Lamé, will scratch brand new work in response to this atmospheric space. Little Bulb and The Paper Cinema will be in residence throughout the week, developing new work during the day and sharing what they have made with audiences for feedback in the evening.

Admission: Free
