English Dirt Scratch

In August Vandal Factory had the pleasure of spending a week in Derby Theatre developing our next show; English Dirt. Unfortunately, because of something called ‘The Edinburgh Fringe Festival’, and ‘Annual Leave,’ and ‘Child Care,’ no-one was able to come to Derby to see our work in progress. Therefore, we have decided to put together the following event and we would be delighted if you would join us:

What: English Dirt is a performance collaboration between Flora Greysteel and Vandal Factory. This is a 40 minute, script in hand, work-in-progress performance. It explores the history of English land ownership and relates it to current crises such as climate, housing and nationalism.
Where: Middle Floor Wharf Chamber, Leeds LS2 7EQ
When: 14th September.

Doors 17:00,
Joe Solo 17.30,
English Dirt 18:00

How much: This is a Pay What You Decide event.
50% the proceeds will go to the Land Justice Network and 50% of the proceeds will go to launching English Dirts’ Kick-starter

Accessibility: Unfortunately the space is not yet wheelchair accessible, however it was our only affordable option at this time and we will be seeking more accessible spaces in the future. This is something the venue is seeking to address as soon as possible. We are very sorry if this means you are unable to attend and we can provide a recording of the live performance.

The next stage: We are looking to make a 75 minute performance of English Dirt in 2020. In order for this to happen, we need partners, collaborators and funding. We hope that this event will act as a means of instigating those conversations as well as us gathering some vital feedback from an audience.
