Fight the system with Electric Eden at Electric Circus
Electric Eden is a brand new site-specific production from award-winning company Not Too Tame (Early Doors). It sees a group of misfits take over a disused building – think raves, glow sticks and UV war paint rather than hippies, hoodies and placards. But, when taking on ‘the man’, their lives are heading for the mother of all hangovers.
Not Too Tame invite you into the immersive world of the unconventional that celebrates what it means to make a stand and find comfort in being a part of a something.
The lack of affordable housing and rent rates is a massive issue. There are 54,000 homeless families at Shelter, 3 million adult children are now living with their parents and 3.5 million homes in England have a concealed housemate (figures from research during R&D). Electric Eden looks at how when people come together they can achieve big things and try to ‘fight’ the system.
Director Jimmy Fairhurst comments, "Not Too Tame are an ensemble company who are firmly founded on the belief of ‘Theatre for All’. Focusing specifically on creating work that breaks the boundaries of tame polite theatre, we aim to engage those who feel that theatre isn’t a place where they belong. Electric Eden is a new site-specific production that looks at community of misfits who choose their own way in life."
Not Too Tame are also bringing Fringe hit Early Doors back to The Jinglin’ Geordie every day at 12:00.
