Dirk Haribo: A War Stars Story

Lata is a multidisciplinary artist. She has directed various plays including for the Camden Fringe, York Takeover Festival. During lockdown she has become interested in making short experimental films.

Stan Carrodus has acted in Lata's productions of ‘Amadeus' (Oxford Playhouse, 2016), and 'Not About Heroes' (Lion and Unicorn, 2016). During 2020 he made an ongoing audio comedy to entertain his friends, called ‘Auntie Elspeth’s Lockdown’, which he hopes to release to the public soon.

Alistair Silcox is a designer and dramaturg. He has collaborated on projects with Lata including 'Richard III’ and 'The Mozart Question' (Camden Fringe 2018 and 2019). He is passionate about LEGO, and dreams of one day working for Industrial Light and Magic (the Star Wars set design company).

Niyi Ọṣibọtę is new to the world of acting. He is interested in telling stories, anthropology, music and ethics.

Alice's Adventures in Wild Wonderland

Join Alice as she goes on a rootin' tootin' adventure through wild wonderland, where she meets more bizarre folk than you can shake a stick at.

Hermione & Phillipa are a queer couple based in south London, both with backgrounds in theatre and art. Hermione is a visual artist and drag performer, and Philippa is a voice over artist and actress. Together they aim to create bizarre, comedic and visually pleasing work that we hope will inject joy into your day.

Join Women not Girls as they bring you the Women's guide to Inception, WOM-IN-CEPTION. The Women (not girls) focus on recreating the iconic scenes of Inception while helping you understand Christopher Nolan's complex masterpiece. Prepare to have your mind blown!


Women not Girls are an all-female Comedy Trio who create sketches, parody's and dub innocent children's TV shows. The Women are the least influential influencers on the net, who use their fame to expose humanity’s hypocrisy’s… although its usually by accident! The women debuted in 2019 at the Southend fringe and have since created 9 video sketches throughout the three lockdowns.

Exploring the interface between fiction and reality through the life of a tax advisor who is suddenly confronted by mysterious forces taking him somewhere he has never been before, join Matteo Mikkelsen & Nina Laumann as they bring you their take on Twin Peaks, Self Assessment.


Self Assessment consists of members Nina Laumann, costume designer and shoemaker, and Matteo Mikkelsen, actor. During the constrained summer of 2020, they managed to develop and record scenes of 12 different characters as part of a portfolio collaboration named Karakterkrebinetten. The characters span from a '18th century dandy' to a white-trash gangster and from a 70's politician to a modern day vampire, whereof the latter character eventually expanded to the short film, 'Medium Roast'.
