THE SHOW

NO WAY OUT

Joan d'Arc: Clemence Caillouel in the centre, Gozde Atalay left and Patricia Rodriguez right.

Stuck between highly taxed tampons and badly lit mirrors, three performers are trapped in a patriarchal purgatory. 

An act of dramaturgical punk; fusing dark comedy, the ridiculous and the tragic. A mix of performance art, clown, buffon, story-telling and political rant, inviting you to laugh in the face of, challenge and reconsider what it is to be a woman. 

No Way Out questions the overall creation of the female image and narrative and debunks it.

The international ensemble bring their own languages, experiences, literary traditions, backgrounds and histories to re-interpret these texts and characters; inspired by Don Quixote, House of Bernarda Alba, Joan of Arc, Jane Eyre, Shahmaran, Disney princesses, and pop queens. 

Development of the work was supported by Ballhaus Ost Berlin, Camden People’s Theatre London and The Cut Halesworth. We are associate artists at The Cut with projects supported by The Roundhouse, Jacksons Lane Theatre, Cambridge Junction, CPT and Ballhaus Ost. Our work has been seen in the UK, Germany, Poland, Croatia, Czech Republic and Spain and programmed in festivals including Kana, Prague Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe, 100˚, Pulse and Faki. 

Previewed at Ballhaus Ost in February 2018/ Premiered at Camden People's Theatre London in May 2018. 

NO WAY OUT  was funded by Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts and Norfolk County Council and in co-production with Flight of the Escales. 

ABOUT US

image10

Makers of theatre and performance; deconstructing forms and relationships in an attempt to get to the bones of a topic and to turn the status quo on its head.  We are interested in exploring the unseen: the ugly and unpolished, the characters without a voice, the lesser explored perspectives. Our performances are a mash-up of dark comedy and absurd surrealism, a mix of poetic meanderings and uncomfortable truths.

This production was supported by Camden People’s Theatre, Ballhaus Ost and The Cut. It was funded by Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts, Norfolk County Councils Arts Fund and through the generous donations of our supporters and friends. A co-production between C’er un Altra Volta (CUAV), Tucan Riot and Flight of the Escales.

Trailer

RESEARCH films: clemence

As part of our 2017 process, we made three films during early research stages of the show. We were working on deconstructing femininity in a confined space. 

During this time, the performers explored characters and experimented with costume while locked up in a toilet.
