Latitude Outdoor Theatre

What better way to enjoy a few hours entertainment?

Outdoor Theatre

After performing with Björk, Jarvis Cocker and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. amongst others, the UK’s famous beatboxer Shlomo is bringing his ‘vocal orchestra’ to Latitude Festival. The current resident artist at the Southbank Centre together with other seven incredible musicians form the fabulous Shlomo & The Vocal Orchestra, the world’s only Beatbox Choir, a jaw-dropping show that will leave you stunned by the abilities of human voice.

The union of the cellist/singer/theatre performer Matthew Sharp, writer/composer Pete M Wyer and executive producer Fiona O'Mahony forms SharpWire. Having worked with the BBC, the National Theatre and the Young Vic amongst others, SharpWire create startlingly original, spellbinding excursions into unchartered music theatre territory that have been acclaimed around the world. Expect ravishing music, engaging and entrancing narrative, sonic and visual wizardry and virtuoso performance. It was quoted as “An intoxicating and intimate passion play of sound, song, movement, and video” by The Guardia.

SharpWire will be presenting two performances for Latitude 2009. ‘Johnny’s Midnight Goggles’ is a one-man operatic thriller written and composed by Pete M. Wyer and performed by Matthew Sharp. The central character Johnny has been kidnapped; the Black Camel of Takrilakastan has shown up and a mysterious pair of goggles has opened a portal to another world. Midnight is fast approaching and the chase is on to rescue Johnny. A mind and genre-melting explosion of story-telling.

The sequel ‘Finkelstein’s Castle’ is yet another one-man operatic romp; an epic, tongue-in-cheek, Sherlock Holmes ‘whodunnit’, that takes us from deserted castles in Scotland to sinister hydro-demolition operations in New York via the half-submerged town of Gallumphing-on-Twee. What dastardly plans for world domination has Johnny stumbled upon this time? And will a pair of wellington boots be enough to save him from the castle where people enter but no-one EVER returns? The Telegraph hailed SharpWire and Matthew Sharp as an “extraordinary cellist, virile bass-baritone, compelling actor - Sharp has astonishingly comprehensive versatility.”

World renowned for its haunting tales, visual theatre, strange animated figures and dark humour, Faulty Optic presents the eccentric, droll and compassionate new production, FISH CLAY PERSPEX ~ Incidences of a Quirky Kind. In this simple, small-scale, low technology piece, Faulty Optic manipulates puppets, miniature and armless pointy-footed figures made of clay, lagging, pens and plastic. A series of short character studies and incidences based upon chance, futility, expectation, doubt and the turmoil caused by the flailings and failings of the human mind. Highlights include falling beasts, battered clay, bendy legs, bad drawing, frantic scribbling and the comic scrabbling of a guileless duo. Escape normality, suspend your disbelief and enter the magical world of visual and surreal adult puppetry.

Used to performing in beautiful settings, the Cambridge Touring Theatre brings a funny, clean show for the whole family. Through audience participation the company’s songs and dances come alive forming an exciting performance everyone will enjoy. Eastern Daily Press declared it “rip-roaring and bursting with fun – this company charge the air with comic invention.”
