We're Lobster Frock Theatre Company and we're crowdfunding to book four days of rehearsal space at Music Room London in New Cross so that we can rehearse our live soundscapes using their specialist sound equipment. Our surrealist and feminist play The Pursuit of Success will be performed at the postponed Wandsworth and Brighton Fringe. Our live soundscapes (created using the human voice, a microphone and a loop pedal) are bold and bodacious. We therefore need a rehearsal space where we can PLUG IN and get LOUD!
LIVE LOCKED DOWN DISCUSSIONS
If you're here because you have taken part in one of our panel discussions please consider donating £5 towards our Crowdfunder. We really hope you enjoyed taking part. We produced these panel discussions with love and a lot of hard work went into them. We would also like to use this time to thank our panellists from the bottom our hearts for generously volunteering their time and expertise.
THE PURSUIT OF SUCCESS - THE SHOW
Packed with guts and heart, The Pursuit of Success is a physical and topical devised show that wonders what happens to your story when someone else holds the pen? Through the story of a screenwriter, with the ambition to share the true story of pilot Amy Johnson, this surreal show explores female representation and ambition in the 1930s as well as today. Lobster Frock’s debut play has a distinct style which fuses vocal looping, physical storytelling and comedy. By skillfully and shamefully dissecting we sexism and feminism, can we start to understand how we reached the daily prejudices which we accept as normal? Can we fight the power? Or have we already lost?
LOBSTER FROCK - THEATRE COMPANY
Lobster Frock makes surrealist theatre, hence the nod to Dali’s ‘Lobster Telephone.’ We create feminist work collaboratively and playfully. Lobster Frock celebrates unsung heroines by bringing their stories to light. Our company or ‘pod’ results from our akin political views. We aim to provoke people to see the world differently and arouse self-reflection.
Lobster Frock was founded by Kirsty Blewett and Christine Mears in 2018. The company is now led by Kirsty Blewett who uses an ensemble led approach to create theatre. Kirsty is working closely with her associate pod of Lobsters for their debut show including Co-Actor-Deviser: Christine Mears, Director: Phoebe Hitt, Sound Designer: Ben Tiver, Dramaturg: Lisa Stelley and Scenographer: Emma Marguerite Lynch.
