Propel is HOME’s platform for artists to play with new ideas, to experiment and to try out new ways of working. Curated by award-winning theatre company Clean Break, this evening will see all chosen artists explore the same theme: ‘speaking truth to power’. Clean Break pride themselves on handing a megaphone to the marginalised, and shouting out on behalf of the voiceless – this is an evening that shows how you can speak up on behalf of something you care about.
Clean Break was set up in 1979 by two women prisoners who believed that theatre could bring the hidden stories of imprisoned women to a wider audience. Still the only women’s theatre company of its kind, Clean Break has remained true to these roots, and continues to inspire playwrights and captivate audiences with groundbreaking plays on the complex theme of women and crime.
We are delighted to be partnering with Clean Break in their 40th anniversary year on this Propel evening. You will get to see pieces at the beginning of being made, some you might love and some that might leave you with more questions. Either way, you are guaranteed to play an integral part in shaping theatre of the future.
Propel and Pizza
Why not relax after the show and chat with the artists you have just seen – a chance to find out more about what drives them to make work the way they do – and you can even enjoy a slice or two of pizza on us! Simply join us in the restaurant bar after the show.
