Sabotage Theatre Company will be hosting The Bee’s Knees Vintage Fair in Kemptown, where there will be live music and entertainment along with second-hand clothes, tea and cakes on Saturday June 15.
They are raising money for their next horse-drawn tour. Entry is £3.
The company’s next show Ravens by Zoe Hinks was first performed by Sabotage in 2009 at the Marlborough Little Theatre as part of the Brighton Fringe festival. Set on Romney Marsh in 1659 it will now be touring the area it is written about, with a horse-drawn show complete with fire, music and masks. During the open air tour the company will travel on foot and camp. The play is performed on the stationary wagon, which is transported from venue to venue by horse.
Sabotage Theatre Company was founded in 2008 with an aim to explore new approaches towards creating accessible yet unconventional theatre. The company set out to challenge attitudes to elitist theatre, working with small communities at a grass-roots level, using materials from skips and transforming office blocks, studios and fields into magical new spaces for plays.
Sabotage likes to mix media, and has incorporated music, film projection, live art and radio into pieces. Since the 2011 the company have been horse drawn, with a focus on rural and isolated communities.
The fair is between 12.45pm-4pm at St Mary’s Church Hall in Kemptown.
