This Is Now –
Sebastian Moody
This Is Now examines the way that society’s unconscious desires manifest through the language of advertising. Utilising market-research generated data and presented in real advertising spaces, Moody’s ads become ‘superadvertisements’ in a series of insightful statements of social understanding.

Please Hold –
Declan Kelly, Halcyon Macleod, Alison McNicol, Sam Routledge
Using text, illusion and live sound design, Please Hold observes the intimacy and solitude of a relationship, surviving solely down the phone line. Please Hold asks whether the technology of telecommunications encourages us to be further apart with the assurance of bringing us closer together 

Four Rogues –
Helmsman Pete and The Tar Gang
Four Rogues presents a series of intimate vignettes, merging wild storytelling and music with highly expressive visual performance. These four short pieces come together to create a richly atmospheric display of ramshackle theatre.
