Hedluv &Passman - Cornish Rap Show

Cornish Rap Show
Hedluv & Passman

This rap duo from Cornwall is an oddity.

Rappers yet Cornish, ironic yet sincere, novel yet durable.

2016 is the ninth year in an unlikely journey that has seen these two school friends from Redruth go from performing in local pubs in Cornwall to a 'Sold Out' Civic Theatre in Auckland, New Zealand ! … Sharply followed by a week of performances in a shipping container beneath a flight path in Sydney, Australia, and playing in local pubs in Cornwall again.

And really that’s not even the half of it. They truly need to be seen to be believed.

They are absolutely brilliant. I went to see them twice’ Alan Davies

Twelfth Night - Fathom Theatre

Twelfth Night
Fathom Theatre

Three women, one puppet, a host of characters and a little help from you…Fathom Theatre pushes Shakespeare’s identity swapping comedy to its hilarious limits with intense hat swapping, plenty of laughs and at least one rocking pair of yellow stockings.

It’s the age old tale, you know the one, women become men, men become puppets, puppets have identity crises and accidentally get into duels.

Some are born great, some achieve greatness but this fast paced reimagining will thrust greatness upon you, whether you be a witty fool or a foolish wit.

Canvas and Rum

North South Theatre

 Canvas & Rum
North South Theatre

Set in the 1800’s Canvas & Rum is a maritime theatre piece centred on the packet ships that sailed from Falmouth, and the life of an old shell backer who left his home in Kernow after a family dispute.

This old sea dog takes on the duty of teaching a new shipmate the ropes on board the ship, but bad luck strikes and the vessel is forced to return to the home that had been avoided for decades.

Inspired by tales such as ‘Moby Dick’ and ‘Heart of the Sea’, but based on the historical figures and events in Falmouth, Canvas & Rum is a maelstrom of Shanties, sirens, superstitions and sea sick sailors.

Following the success of ‘Pals’, NorthSouth Theatre brings you a brand new tale from Cornish history.

The Moscow Drug Club

The Moscow Drug club

This is a curious musical place where certain elements of 1930’s Berlin Cabaret, Hot Club de France, Nuevo Tango & Gypsy Campfire meet, have a few to drinks and stagger arm in arm into the darkness of some eastern European cobbled street on a mission to find the bar where Django Reinhardt & Tom Waits are having an afterhours jam with the local Tziganes.

 Combining their original material with songs by the likes of Jaques Brel, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits & Bertolt Brecht, Moscow Drug Club provide an intoxicating & intimate musical experience.

You are cordially invited to share a wry smile with us as you enter the darkly comic world of Moscow Drug Club…..this way please & mind the stairs!

Here, a hand-picked selection of stories are brought to life by dazzling performance storyteller, Xanthe Gresham Knight and the sublime, rhythmic sounds of virtuoso Kurdish Iranian musician, Arash Moradi, on daf, setar and shurangiz.

Enjoy these treasured stories wrapped up in an intimate, enchanting and powerful performance.

Calum Stewart Trio

Calum Stewart Trio

Bright, vibrant and captivating Celtic music;performed by three of today's leading instrumentalists in full flight.

The Calum Stewart Trio blend old melodies together with new, in an inspiring, assertive and dynamic interplay.

A leading Uilleann Piper & Flautist, Calum Stewart's powerful and lyrical playing style is rooted in the traditional music of his native northern Scotland. His distinct musical voice has been developed through his collaborations within the Scottish, Irish and Breton traditions.

Coming from a new generation of guitarists, Heikki Bourgault embraces the strong tradition of Breton musicians, whilst pushing the boundaries of the open tuned guitar. His knowledge of Fest Noz dance, both as dancer and musician, nourishes his composition in the Breton style, whilst giving him a solid base to explore new ground.

Yann Le Bozec is one of Brittany’s finest double bass players. In demand as both recording and touring artist, his upbringing in traditional music and dance is central to his playing.

Minar Pasion

Claudia Caolin y Campania

Claudia Caolin y Campania

 Minar Pasion

Minar Pasión derives from the shared history of mining, employing Flamenco dance, traditional Cornish Scoot dance, live Flamenco music, commissioned poetry, narration and visual art.


Hardship, Hope and New Horizons-
the Cornish and Spanish Diaspora retold in a new multi-media performance by international dance and theatre company: Claudia Caolín Y Compañia.

This latest piece explores the connection between Flamenco and mining, drawing historical parallels between Cornish dance, Flamenco dance and the tradition of passionate song inspired by working in the Andalusian mines.


The show draws on the wealth of music, dance and imagery inspired by the experiences of mining communities of both, Southern Spain and Cornwall.

Flamenco owes much of its origins to those working in the metal and mining industries, with one particular style, the Taranto, being solely born out of the mining experience.

Just as Cornish Tin has been a ticket to foreign lands and new horizons, the Spanish Diaspora enhanced Flamenco song and dance through its contact with mining colonies overseas, incorporating the cultural flavour of Latin-America.

Thousands left, thousands returned - each telling their own, moving individual story.

A theatrical evening awaits which aims to capture the pathos, drama, colour and excitement inherent within the experience of life-risking and life-changing exodus.
