Autumn Theatre Season 2019
World premieres, Edinburgh transfers and returning Soho favourites - a new season of surprise and subversion.
Cocoon Central Dance Team (Sunita Mani, Tallie Medel and Eleanore Pienta) present 'The Garden Party'. You’ve heard of friendship, yes? Gardens, right? And parties? Well. Imagine the drama of all three at the same time, with dance. Now try imagining a party without Sunita, Tallie and Eleanore. No thanks
This trio of New York City alt-comedy favorites have been best friends and creative collaborators for over ten years. Nothing could ever tear them apart. Just kidding. Ever been in a relationship? It’s hard…and these three are overdue for a fight. Behold as they volley and spike their friendship and artistic intimacy. Sunita, Tallie and Eleanore sashay through the Cocoon universe with high-energy choreography, videos, uncanny chemistry, and live acts of vicious betrayal, and for the first time they’re bringing a London audience along for the ride. Honoring the human body’s stupidity and a songbook of early 00’s pop hits, these three have to be seen to be believed. Credits include MoMA, the Upright Citizens Brigade Theaters in New York and Los Angeles, opening for Broad City Live, and creating the acclaimed 2017 film Snowy Bing Bongs Across The North Star Combat Zone (BAFICI, BAMCinemaFest, International Film Festival Rotterdam). Independently, Mani, Medel and Pienta have been featured on G.L.O.W., Broad City, Search Party, Inside Amy Schumer and in a truly staggering number of music videos and feature films.
High-brow collides with low-brow to form the perfect unibrow. The Garden Party is an original night of comedy making its debut in London. Come to the garden party… There’s gonna be a fight
'[A] spectacular approach to comedy.'
