Alma Mater, at BAC, 1 May – 12 May

Battersea Arts Centre are taking on the microtheatre concept during early May, hosting the first London run of Fish & Game’s hit Edinburgh Fringe show.

A filmic tour-for-one, Alma Mater fuses high-technology with lo-fi charm as individual audience members enter a specially constructed, full-scale child’s bedroom to immerse themselves – via iPad – in the world of a little girl.

With an original score by John De Simone performed by experimental octet, Ensemble Thing and cinematography from award-winning artist Anna Chaney, Alma Mater weaves a complex, handheld fairytale for the 21st century – a haunting meditation on family, familiarity and growing-up.
