600 PEOPLE Summer Tour

So, is there anybody out there?

I’m delighted to be taking the ‘grown up’ version of 600 People back out on the road this summer. We kick off with our first ever visit to the Pulse Festival, followed by return trips to some of our favourite festival partners.

Tour dates are below. We hope you can join us.

Third Angel presents
6OO People
Written & Performed by Alexander Kelly
Inspired by conversations with Dr Simon Goodwin
Directed by Rachael Walton

“We step out of our solar system, into the universe, seeking only peace and friendship…”  
So says the message from the human race on the Voyager spacecraft. But is there, y'know, anyone out there? Alex talked to an astrophysicist to find out. This is what he learned: Stellar Wobble. The Mirror Test. Fermi’s Paradox. Enhanced humans and murderous dolphins.

Stand-up meets astrophysics in this entertaining and deceptively simple show about huge ideas, exploring the stories we tell to understand our place in the cosmos, and what it means to be human.

“Wow! Completely stunning!” “Genuinely mind-boggling!” audience reaction

“a remarkable and enthralling showcase of knowledge and understanding… a continuous stream of ideas – seamlessly and effortlessly performed… gripping” Cuckoo Review

“a modest, direct piece of theatre which still has the power to knock you to the floor; intelligent, honest and brilliantly inquisitive.” Exeunt

POPCORN at The Holt!

As part of our 20th - 21st Anniversary celebrations this year, we're commissioning a series of Small Celebrations - intimate moments of performance by artists we have mentored, supported, collaborated or connected with over the years. Each will be documented and collected throughout the year and made available in the autumn. 

The first of these is our own small celebration, Popcorn. A fifteen minute performance reflecting on rules, time, making stuff, shared language, shared history and friendship. We'll be performing it at The Holt, a great new cafe and artspace in Sheffield, on Wednesday 18th May at 1.15pm, with an opportunity to chat afterwards. So if you're in Sheffield, why not come down for coffee, cake, a sandwich, and enjoy a lunchtime theatre celebration with us? We hope to see you there.
