FRESH STUFF. FIRST LOOK. NEW WRITING.

 

Following its success in 2019, our festival of new work – REP STRIPPED is back! 

From live readings and gig theatre to promenade performances and scratch nights, the Rep is transformed to present work both on our stage and behind the scenes in different and unusual spaces throughout the theatre. Featuring a diverse range of exciting, cutting-edge work from some of the country’s most innovative creative voices, REP STRIPPED gives you a first peek and unique opportunity to see new ideas and experimental work in the early stages of development.
 
Taking place between Wed 1 June and Sat 4 June, join us for 4 days showcasing the best as-yet-unseen stories right here in Dundee.

 

CARTOGRAPHY 

Where are we? How do we relate to each other now? How do we orientate and anchor ourselves in this tumultuous moment? Cartography is a promenade performance that allows people to encounter strangers again, and to share – stories, memories, a feeling of connection.
 
Every 10 minutes a pair of audience members will enter a kind of labyrinth. They will be guided through a series of intimate, highly interactive encounters in different and unique spaces throughout the building – each distinct, yet each adding to an appreciation of the whole.  
 
Cartography has been devised by participants on the Waypoint-1 project and with the direction of Fringe First, Herald Angel and Total Theatre Award winner, Al Seed. Waypoint-1 is a Scotland-wide project supporting and promoting the work of early-career performance makers. Its core purpose is to deliver one-on-one mentorship programmes, lasting up to a year.  Waypoint-1 is delivered by Al Seed Productions in partnership with Dundee Rep Theatre and Scottish Dance Theatre. 
 
Age Recommendation: 18+.
