Potluck is our annual theatre festival, bringing a pick n mix of new performance to life. COVID has pushed performance out of live venues and in this year’s festival we wanted to embrace that!

Potluck 2021 consists of 6 digital performance that each, in their own way, explore and examine this new online format. From live audience interaction to digital installation this festival showcases what performance in an online space can look like!

Existing within the boundaries of movement and dance, ‘Surplus To Requirements’ explores how we transform gesture into performance. Both in the choreography and the score it dissects specific variables like speed and tone to attempt to find where, if at all, this line is drawn.

The piece is particularly interested in how collective movement can be read as performative, and how this is accompanied by the loss of the individual. As the title and the stripped back, uniform aesthetic suggests, much of the inspiration for this was taken from large-scale factory work & Industry and soviet propaganda. Furthermore, while founded on choreography, the piece is heavily devised and thus works to examine the idea of the ‘collective’ both in product and in practice.
