Uninvited Guests

Love Letters Straight from the Heart

Mon 21 Aug 8.30pm

Work-in-Progress £3 / £2 concs / dark studio

Somewhere between a wedding reception and a radio show Uninvited Guests take requests and dedicate songs to others’ loves. They try to express the inexpressible, to speak of love without irony, as though they’ve felt all the greatest loves and losses in the world. This celebratory reception comes at the end of a weeklong residency. Please bring along amorous gifts, songs and dedications to loves past or present. Join them early in this process for conversation and a glass of something pink.

Between 14 and 21 August, Uninvited Guests will be in residency developing their new performance Love Letters Straight from the Heart. This work-in-progress performance will give the audience a unique chance to see the company’s working processes and discuss them with the artists.
