The line-up for this year’s Pulse Festival has been announced. Based at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich, the annual theatre festival as ever boasts an exciting programme of events, including brand new work and scratch performances from Hoipolloi Dancing Brick, Greg McLaren, Bryony Kimmings, nabokov, Cartoon de Salvo and Slung Low.
As in previous years, while the New Wolsey – which celebrates its 10th Anniversary in 2011 – is the heart of the festival, productions will take place at various venues around the city including the Ipswich Film Theatre, a local shop, a van and in someone’s kitchen. The festival line-up includes the pick of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe shows including Caroline Horton’s award-winning and touching solo show, You’re Not Like the Other Girls Chrissy, and Little Bulb’s energetic and endearing Operation Greenfield; Laura Mugridge’s VW campervan, which was previously parked in the Pleasance Courtyard, will also be at the festival for her one-woman show, Running on Air.
Poet, performer and ukulele-player Tim Clare will present his new show, How to Be a Leader, and DV8’s Dan Canham will present a new piece, 30 Cecil Street; Hoipolloi’s Hugh Hughes makes his first foray into cinema with How I Got Here and Hannah Jane Walker presents her poetry piece This is Just to Say (read Hannah Jane Walker’s essay on intimacy and performance here)
