NOW is back with 10 exceptional artists in 5 weeks of explosive double bills. Wild and wildly different shows by the best makers, dancers, opera singers, punk drummers.

Running from: Tue 15 Jan - Sat 16 Feb, various times.

These artists are all at the top of their game. And alongside their shows we’ve got a feast of late-night music and events every weekend to keep you going until the early hours.

Week 1

Brian Lobel with Gweneth-Ann Rand (Soprano)
24 Italian Songs and Arias - 7.30pm
After failing to win the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award, 24 Italian Songs and Arias comes to The Yard: a recital, an opera, a gathering for (and by) those whose best isn’t always enough.

Fk Alexander with Andy Brown
Diana is Dead - 9pm
In a collaboration with musician Andy Brown, notorious punk rock drummer, Fk pays surreal tribute to the complexity, the endurance and the tragic death of the People’s Princess.

Week 2

Last Yearz Interesting Negro + Rowdy SS
48 Hours : - 7:30pm
48hours : is a meeting between two bodies. It is both public and private. It is a place where the live moment – in all its heat and complexity – is centred.

Hotter Than A Pan
Using choreography as a site for the expansion of possibility, Hotter Than A Pan triumphs beyond the politics of identification by seeking the untold power in the undercurrent, marginal, and non-linear aspects of melancholia.

Week 3

Greg Wohead
Call it a Day - 7:30pm
Featuring an unpicking of Cyndi Lauper’s 1983 hit Time After Time and interruptions from 1985 Amish-themed thriller Witness (starring Harrison Ford), Call It A Day is a kaleidoscopic examination of the impossibility of truly understanding one another.

Seke Chimutengwende
Plastic Soul
A mix between gig, dance and documentary, Seke Chimutengwende, who has worked with DV8, Lost Dog and Fabulous Beast, steps up to the mic in a series of increasingly demanding and outlandish roles.

Week 4

Tim Spooner + Tom Richards
Cuteness Forensics - 7:30pm
In Cuteness Forensics,  artists Tom Richards and Tim Spooner (The Voice of Nature, Battersea Arts Centre) embark on a visual and sonic escapade. Velvet, electronics, sponge, lead, and record players are their materials.

Ira Brand
Ways to Submit
Ways To Submit explores what is means to play at dominance and submission. And who has the privilege to ‘play’?

Week 5

Tim Etchells & Forced Entertainment with Tyrone Huggins
To Move in Time - 7:30pm
Written by Tim Etchells and powerfully performed by Tyrone Huggins (Black Men Walking Royal Exchange/Royal Court) To Move in Time is an unfurling trail of thought in which extraordinary and impossible fantasies are dreamt up, lived out and then discarded.

Peter McMaster with Louise Ahl
A Sea of Troubles - 9pm
A performance space. Silence. Memory. A sea of male bodies. This quietly beautiful work urges you to look closely at yourself, your space and what a moving male body can mean.
