In a double first for Bristol, we welcome National Theatre Wales to the city, and we stage theatre at Motion, the vast club in the heart of the new Enterprise Zone. And what a show it is too.
Enter the unique world of Praxis Makes Perfect. Become part of an immersive gig imagining the life of Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, the millionaire Italian communist at the heart of many of the most extraordinary events of the 20th century. Smuggle a manuscript out of Russia, be tortured by the CIA, play basketball with Fidel Castro. With Feltrinelli, anything is possible.
Conceived and performed by Gruff Rhys and Boom Bip of Neon Neon.

He who picks his words well, can turn the weakest argument into the strongest: Valentijn Dhaenens pays tribute to 2,500 years of oration.
A tale of tenderness and laughter turns to sadness and confusion. In this surreal and raucous show, an attempt to understand the past becomes a daring journey through the veils of memory that yields surprises and awakens ghosts.
