PATTERNS, the latest installment of Outlandish Theatre Platform’s Open Theatre Practice, will take place in the Coombe Hospital’s Rita Kelly Theatre on 2 December 2018, with a performance and a workshop seminar.

Outlandish Theatre Platform is theatre company in residence at the Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital. Open Theatre Practice is a weekly open performance-making workshop at the Rita Kelly Theatre which is free to the public and where no previous arts experience is required. Open Theatre Practice operates two seasons annually, working towards a performance at the end of each season.

“In the direction, in the spoken, in the moving, in the broken, in the institution, in the mating, in the mind, patterns reside….” 

PATTERNS is a poly-vocal performance exploration woven from tangible and more obscure patterns to engage and surprise. Created with community participants within an arts and health context, this one off performance embraces both the individual perspective and the collective. Experience PATTERNS in the chaos of existence.
