Summer at Battersea Arts Centre

Sandra Giorgetti

At the core of the summer programme at South West London's Battersea Arts Centre is a trio of work opening with the torch-lit dystopian thriller Light from Theatre Ad Infinitum which returns by popular demand.

Light is followed by the UK première of Forced Entertainment's duologue Dirty Work (The Late Shift) and the return of Little Bulb Theatre with its raucous open-air musical, Extravaganza Macabre. which was hugely successful in the newly created outdoor performance space last year.

Other work includes Emma Frankland's Rituals for Change and scratch performances from Chris Thorpe and Rachel Chavkin and the BAC Beatbox Academy.

Refugee Week is marked in June with the première of Battersea Arts Centre’s first documentary, made with Fettis Films recording tales from last November’s London Stories: Made by Migrants.

The Edinburgh Comedy Previews programmes includes performances from Sara Pascoe, John Kearns and Nish Kumar.
