Constance and Sinestra live on the edge of a cliff with their mad taxidermist father who never comes upstairs. Three years ago their mother died and he stuffed her and mounted her in the hall. A heartbreaking and twisted tale of love, loss and baking - Constance & Sinestra took the Edinburgh Festival by storm winning a WhatsOnStage and MTM:UK Musical Theatre award and played this year's Latitude Festival, developing further into 2014. Perfect for lost children of all ages.
BusStopKisser (German) by Ralf N.Höhfeld
Translated by Vanessa Fagan
A boy. A girl. A bus stop. 18 Kisses over 18 months. Coffee and conversation by candlelight, a picnic under the Eiffel Tower. Then the girl vanishes. But was she ever really there? Can anyone without an email address or mobile phone actually be real? A funny, unusual take on the classic boy-meets-girl scenario, BusStopKisser takes the audience on a mind-bending tweet-sized journey through adolescent romance.
BusStopKisser is an exciting foray into contemporary European theatre for the company. The piece is particularly pertinent for the sorts of young audiences which have enjoyed their work in the past – in the team's design, technology and social media are the aesthetic root, with hashtags of thought, Facebook profile searches and Flickr browsing all projected into the scene. But at the heart of the piece is a story of young love in all its glorious awkwardness which, despite the simple, moving dialogue, still manages to ask big questions about what it means to be human in the digital age.
