"This summer Theatre Delicatessen is unearthing a new and wondrous world at the Bush Theatre; the world of Bush Bazaar, where market traders rub shoulders with fortune tellers, stock brokers and white-coated doctors in a fantastical environment where anything could happen.
We invite you, challenge you, to enter this world, inhabited by an eclectic array of performers who have taken over the space and are selling their wares. It is up to you whose performance gets your cash. As you roam the building you will decide what each piece is worth and pay your way however you want to - by haggling, bartering, begging or stealing."
CurvingRoad is an award-winning charity whose focus is supporting theatre artists and their creative process. In 2011 CurvingRoad merged with Theatre Delicatessen creating a partnership that will build on our impressive work in developing new and emerging artists by giving them the space, guidance and resources they need, whilst opening up new opportunities to collaborate with other artists and businesses.
Bush Bazaar is part of our innovative project Theatre Souk. It’s part of our programme dedicated to the professional development of young artists. We provide companies with a bit of money, 6 weeks rehearsal and development space, and 3 weeks performance space. Collectively our artists create a fantastical, delightful world, where anything can happen.
But all artists involved NEED YOUR HELP! Each company needs to raise another £1000 each in order to make our festival the best it can be. Please explore our artists’ projects to see how you can help.
