In Bloom by Aline Costa (Female Bursary award 2023)

A mesmerising dance performance that challenges your perception and leaves you with a sense of wonder. Drawing inspiration from Butoh techniques, the piece features slow, deliberate movements and powerful imagery that evoke mystery and intrigue, an unforgettable journey into the unknown. Aline is a Swiss performer and choreographer based in Liverpool.

Look After Your Knees by Natalie Bellingham

A show about the pain and beauty of love, what it is to both connect and unravel.

It’s a celebration of being human in all its banality, sprinkled with joy and ridiculousness. Performed by a clown delving into the space inside us left behind by loss.

Natalie is theatre maker, performer and physical comedian.

Wet Dream with Jesus by Alice Way (Female Bursary award 2023)

Louisiana, home of Mardi Gras, southern hospitality, and raging purity culture. This is an autobiographical one-woman comedy investigating the wonders and pitfalls of growing up in the Bible Belt of America. The show explores Alice’s conservative, Christian led education in public high school while navigating teenage social politics and pending sexual identity. Alice, LIPA graduate, is the artistic director of Dragonfly Performance which explores social issues through thought provoking comedic theatre.

Jam and Chemicals by Dora Colquhoun

A show about Home. Carl Sangan described Earth as a fragile dot ‘A mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.’ Earth is our collective home. But what is home? Is it a place? A feeling? People? Dora is on a quest to find out.

She is a Neurodivergent theatre maker with a passion for storytelling using humour and absurdity, she is working with international theatre and clown Jamie Wood and composer Luke Thomas.
