Handpicked from last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, Spillikin is a story about dementia and loss. Sally has Alzheimer’s and her memories are fading fast. Her scientist husband built her a state-of-the-art robot before he died, uploaded with memories to help her remember the good times. But as Sally’s mind fades, will the robot be more of a comfort or a threat? A piece of inventive, original and gripping theatre, exploring the big questions of love, death and technology, with a real robot!

Drawing influence from Dervish dance, Figurines is a dance of perpetual movement, constant recreation and of dizziness inspired by ritualistic meditative movement. The piece accelerates gradually, revolving constantly to create a spiral that gets smaller and smaller until the performer turns on the spot. During the performance the audience are asked to wear earplugs as booming bass emanates from powerful speakers, as Lola seeks to merge your physical and psychological response
