What is it?
Part town hall meeting, part radio broadcast and part protest, Make Better Please invites audiences to participate in a unique theatrical exorcism. Drawing material from the day’s newspaper the company and the audience form a collective ministry, channelling the spirits of corporate fat cats, cabinet ministers and media tycoons, before banishing them forever in a riotous display of dance, music and rage.
With an approach to theatre making that embraces the live experience with a visceral, direct and sometimes intimate audience relationship, Uninvited Guests’ recent work includes the widely celebrated Love Letters Straight From Your Heart, an interactive celebration of love composed of dedications written by the audience, interspersed with songs they have chosen.
Formed in Bristol in 1998, Uninvited Guests are Richard Dufty, Jessica Hoffman and Paul Clarke. They work in various contexts, focusing mainly on performance but also producing installations and digital media. They were recently commissioned by Tate Britain to create a son et lumière to accompany The Last Judgement, an exhibition of paintings by John Martin.
Founded in 2004 and led by Louise Blackwell and Kate McGrath, Fuel is a producing organisation working with contemporary theatre artists to develop, create and present new work.
