Signal Fire (n): a fire or light set up in a prominent position as a warning, signal, or celebration.
As our 10th anniversary tour is put on hold until next year, we’re pleased to announce that we will be uniting with many UK touring theatre companies in Signal Fires.
Stretching from Cornwall to Aberdeen; SIGNAL FIRES will connect audiences and touring theatre companies in a collective national act of story-telling.
As part of this event Norfolk-based fEAST theatre are coming to Wells-next-the-Sea and Great Yarmouth to present: Stories from the East
In this socially distanced, Covid-safe, outdoor show 7 actors from fEAST will perform songs and scenes from several of our best known shows and offer a glimpse of some new yet-to-be-performed work. The performance will take us on a journey through time and place from Yarmouth beach in the early 19thCentury to Cromer and Norwich before the First World War via a 1943 US airbase near Wroxham and a medieval legend from our mist-shrouded saltmarshes.
For ten years fEAST theatre has been touring vibrant original theatre along the highways and byways of Norfolk and Suffolk. The company has built up a loyal following and a reputation for telling powerful stories set in Eastern England and working with professional actors who can speak with the authentic voices of our region.
At this time of crisis for the performing arts industry the Signal Fires events, which involve many of the UK’s top touring theatre companies, are a defiant reminder of the power and importance of story-telling and live performance. fEAST theatre is proud to be part of this imaginative project.
The health and safety of audiences, artists, creative teams and staff alike is of the upmost importance. All companies involved in the project will implement COVID secure measures to ensure that their full process, from rehearsal to performance, is in line with the current government guidelines, following strict hygiene protocols and allowing for social distancing.
