Pests Presents: Paper Smokers

The Paper Smokers are joining Pests in Bournemouth on their tour with Diary of an Expat.

Diary of an Expat is a semi autobiographic political comedy about an immigrant’s journey towards full Britishness while a funny little thing called Brexit threatens the European dream of life abroad.

They will be coming to Bournemouth on Friday June 14th, performing at St Michaels Church at 7:30pm.

Paper Smokers is a collective of storytellers founded by Cecilia Gragnani after she moved to London from Italy to complete her theatre training. 

The name comes from a poem written by the Italian writer Cesare Pavese:

https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems-and-poets/poets/detail/cesare-pavese

Our work focuses on new writing and comedy and it includes theatre, music, visual arts and film. We strongly believe in the value of international collaboration and the coming together of artists from different backgrounds as precious tools to interpret today’s world.

We focus on projects that are multilingual, transcultural and exist across borders.

Pests Presents: Susan Kempster

IMG_0151-BournemouthS.jpg

Pests are bringing the brilliant Susan Kempster to Bournemouth to perform Eye. Eye is a look at self through the lens of a camera, not a mirror. It is a close-up, a detail, an intimate diving into private worlds we sometimes wish no one could see. Using an old video camera and a projector, we are invited to observe the micro dance of facial expressions. A solo show with an invited guest, and an invitation to the audience to participate in a sequence of “face dances”, Eye sits on the edge between theatre, dance, live film and performance.

Susan Kempster is a dance artist and performance maker, originally from Australia, living more than two decades in Spain, and now based in London. She is an award-winning choreographer, who balances her work between teaching, creating and performing. Her solo performances Eye, and the earlier My Own Private Movie, have been born out of a desire for direct and personal connection with the audience.

Susan will be performing Eye on April 12th, doors open at 7PM with the show starting at 7:30PM. Tickets are £5 full price and £3 concession and can be bought by following the link below.
