Sh!t Theatre present: Sh!t Theatre's JSA (Job Seekers Anonymous)

Howdy folk, happy 2012. We realise your year must've got off to a pretty bad start, seeing as how there's been no blog update for like, three weeks, but relax! RELAX!!!! We're back.

Sh!t Theatre have been mega super busy getting plans sorted for our first ever Grants for the Arts application with Escalator East 2012 and our mentor Anthony from the wonderful Colchester Arts Centre. The project we are looking to fund is a development of our Sh!t Theatre's (genuine) Performance Democracy that you all know and love in your own unique ways (I'm looking at you, New 'horrified silence' Yorkers). Sh!t Theatre present: Sh!t Theatre's JSA (Job Seekers Anonymous) is set to be another audience inter-active politically subversive and personally heart-wrenching marathon of filth, only this time set in  a Job Centre and focussing on the political and personal issues surrounding (un)employment and communication between the individual and the institution of the Job Centre. We are really looking forward to putting some hard work into this piece, we're gonna move around the stage and everything, pretty amazing. We are also talking to Sophie Jallen http://www.sophiejallen.com/ BSL interpreter extraordinaire about getting her involved with some performative sign language SH!T. Our application is due in February, we really really hate filling out application forms, and this form is King of Awful, plus there's not a lot of money going around at the moment, so wish us luck.

Coming soon:
Sh!t Theatre the Official Website should be up and running in a matter of days;
Sh!t Theatre gigs in 2012 - more politics, more comedy, more sh!t;
AiR Supply - we're back in action...

Stay tuned for more info!
