There will be matinee and evening performances at The Crew Club in Whitehawk on:
- 13 and 14 May 2023
We are looking for a ‘Corporate Chorus’; a physically grotesque chorus of corporate greed and toxicity. The chorus will perform together, and the words will be devised from real-life characters.
- When: Thursday 16 March 6.30 – 8 pm
- Where: Hanover Room, Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD
No Recalls and Nothing to Prepare.
We are interested to hear from people from all walks of life and no previous performing experience is necessary.
Rehearsals will take place on Fridays from 4.30- 7.30 pm at Brighton Youth Centre on the following dates:
- 24, 31 March
- 21, 28 April
- 5, 12 May
Additional rehearsals will take place during the Easter Holidays and on occasional Saturdays, subject to people’s availability. Not everyone will be called to every rehearsal.
Rehearsals will be led by Tanushka Marah and will involve Jack Parris.
There will be no charge for being involved in this production.

About the show
A reimagining of the ancient Greek Tragedy where the revolt against authority is reframed with a tribal youth against a chorus of predatory corporatists. The central figure of Dionysus, the girl who speaks the truth, sets the rage alight. Performed against the backdrop of the South Downs, contemporary society is in ruins with the remnant fog of austerity and climate crisis taking its toll. A chorus of crows leads us through the encampment as we are introduced to its inhabitants: the young people: harbingers of hope, who managed to survive the chaos. The future has returned to tribal and primitive ways where storytelling and magic keep everyone alive. Set to the soundtrack of thumping bass and rhythmic choral voices as the enraged screams of the collective BAKKHAI lead us to the explosive climax. Collaborating with Brighton People’s Theatre and dance company Ceyda Tanc this features a cast of over 50 people.
