Push It Never Stop’ is an empowering visual talk by PINS sharing his story & work as an independent artist,
the resistance he faced and the mindset needed to proceed the artist path successfully through his
experiences so far.
The words ‘Push It Never Stop’ came to PINS after various blunders and small successes throughout his
artistic journey, learning along the way, making mistakes but never giving up, always striving for more, and
consequently became PINS strapline and self-empowering philosophy he lives by today.

Glaucoma tells the story of three young girls
with dreams of revolution.
Detained in a surreal, minimalist prison, they
meet an array of strange characters from the
systems they oppose and must fight to hold on to their strength, firm beliefs and humanity.
CapaTaro Theatre’s debut performance explores the idea that here, in the ‘developed’ world, we are becoming passive to pressing social and environmental issues that our world is facing today. This passiveness is likened to a growing disease of the eyes, a gradual loss of sight, ‘Glaucoma’.
The Lab Collective
The Lab Collective present a sharing of their
new interactive performance…
A new society is coming; plagued by the
suspicion of strangers, a system has evolved
to meet the demands of an angry and fearful
population. Incoming/Exodus is an interactive,
immersive experience which challenges
attitudes towards immigration, with your
voice centre stage.
You have been called upon to undertake a new
form of civic duty, becoming immigration
officers on behalf of a crumbling Government.
Working collaboratively with your team, you
must complete your assignment to make or
break the new order.
In a world where humans have been turned
into numbers, and the numbers are warped by
those in power - will you break the system?

Spanish theatre company Yellow Collective’s new
performance, which is currently under
development is called ‘P.A.T.S’. It is a one-woman
show which confronts the need to have a dialogue.
It reflects on the universal sense of love and sex
and the paradoxical and dualistic nature of
memories going between reality and the doubting
of remembered events.
Revealing the human tendency to change and
distort the past while at the same time recognising
this pattern in order to cope with our present
selves. P.A.T.S is a movement based piece which
contains elements of performance art and
The piece combines texts from classic literature
and contemporary linguistics using both Spanish
Created in collaboration between Yellow Collective

Ophelia Rewound retraces - in reverse - the steps of
Ophelia's story. The story begins with her death and
ends with her transformation.
Blurring the lines between character, autobiography and imagination, Ophelia Rewound is an amalgamation of three very different and yet very similar women.
More than another exploration of Shakespeare’s or
Müller's Ophelia, the piece transcends the
boundaries of classical theatre to present us with a
modern and tangible Ophelia to which everyone can
choose to relate, aspire, reject or simply observe.
