Frauke Requardt & Daniel Oliver

Dadderrs

£17 / £13 concs

Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Daniel is dyspraxic and is too slow.
Frauke has ADHD and is too quick.
They are married and have kids.

Join the couple in the Meadowdrome, their fantastical escapist world. Together you will encounter awkwardly intimate interactive actions, strange dances, sweet and surreal songs, and other off-kilter "grown-up" activities.

This interactive show invites you to explore, converse and play within the neurodivergent realm Daniel and Frauke have created.

The performance culminates in an open space where audience are invited to interact, reflect and play in the Meadowdrome with Frauke & Daniel.

"Underneath the chaotic lunacy though, is a rather sweet, poignant look at what binds and bonds partners together in real life." - ★★★★ The List


Age Recommendation: 16+

Please Note: This performance contains male and female nudity, references to sex, loud music and haze. 

Although this is a standing show with optional audience participation, there are seats available should audience members require them.

Duration: Approx. 60mins


Free wrap around event: Brain Map
Tue 5 Nov, from 6.30pm

Artist Chloe Spicer invites you to take part in the interactive installation, Brain Map from 6.30pm in the theatre bar.

Most people think in a straight line, like this: from A to B. But some people don't exactly go from A to B. Some people start at C and follow a spectacular spaghetti path through H,U,J,M round to Z and zoom off into adventures in space and time around letters from indecipherable ancient scripts, before crashing down, exhausted, somewhere near A, having forgotten all about B. Armed only with a bundle of wool, join us in the Brain Map den and have a go at sculpting your own thought patterns.


Parent & Baby Matinee: Wed 6 Nov, 11am

We understand it can be difficult for a parent to come out in the evening so we’ve programmed a performance of Dadderrs earlier in the day. You can come with or without your child. Please bear in mind that this is not a children’s show and it does contain adult themes.
