What’s on at the Exeter Phoenix

Razz breaks down what’s what at the Phoenix…


University of Exeter special discount!
A special offer has been set up especially for University of Exeter students for the Phoenix Performance programme. Students can get book tickets for just £6 (full price £10) for the following events:

30 Cecil Street / In the Making (art & life)
Tues 24 Jan at 8pm
This is a double bill from two highly acclaimed contemporary dancers, Dan Canham (Kneehigh, DV8, Punchdrunk) and Laura Dannequin (Daghda dance company and Punchdrunk).

“A spine-tingling dance-theatre piece… exquisitely crafted, thoughtful theatre”  – LYN GARDNER, THE GUARDIAN (on 30 Cecil Street)



What I Heard About the World

Tue 6 March at 8pm
Three engaging and entertaining storytellers relate and demonstrate tales of replicas and substitutes from around the world.  Sometimes bleak, often moving, the show asks the question, what happens when we try to see strangers, foreigners as ourselves in another place?

If you haven’t seen Third Angel’s work before, this is your chance to experience contemporary performance at its best.  Driven by the need to ask questions and a passion for ideas, few companies have the ability to make provocative innovative work, which is also entertaining and absorbing.

To book, call 01392 667080 or pop in the Phoenix and quote ‘Exeter Uni offer. (Offer is subject to availability).


Visual Art

FREE exhibition and art competition
David Blandy: Passage of the Soul
Winner of The Times/The South Bank Show Breakthrough Award 2010. Blandy’s work explores ideas about identity, media and alter egos.

The Phoenix will soon be launching a competition, which Razz thinks would be a brilliant way to get creative. More details are to come but the idea is that students imagine their own super hero and super hero powers and then transfer into artwork. This can be a photo, illustration or digital representation to be submitted to the Phoenix.

Along with David Blandy, the Phoenix will choose the best 35 super heroes and the winners’ art will be produced in a special edition pack of Top Trump cards which will be displayed and sold at Exeter Phoenix.

Details to come soon.

Q & A with director of How to Re-establish a Vodka Empire
Thu 2 Feb, 8.10pm, £4.50 for students

How to Re-Establish a Vodka Empire is a feature film documenting one film director’s quest to discover his roots and re-launch his family’s Vodka empire, this time as a social enterprise.

The film is a dizzying mesh of stories and techniques that ambitiously document one film director’s quest to discover his roots and re-launch his family vodka empire.

The film is fresh out of the London Film Festival, where both screenings were a sell out.


Keep creative!
