S01E01 Kate Tempest 01/10/2016 In this episode, co-produced with Battersea Arts Centre a trio of spoken-word artists curated by Kate Tempest will share bite-sized performances on themes of contemporary Britain. Kate Tempest picks up the mic to fuse hip-hop, poetry and theatre as she shares stories from her second album, Let Them Eat Chaos, filmed for BBC Two from the one-of-a-kind Rivoli Ballroom in her neighborhood of Brockley, south-east London. Let Them Eat Chaos is set in the early hours of one morning and traces the lives and stories of seven people, living on a south-east London street, who all find themselves awake at 4.18am.
S01E02 Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere 22/07/2017 Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere is about different kinds of popular protest. Written and performed by Paul Mason, former economics editor of Channel 4 News and BBC's Newsnight, the play is a personal account of how we got from the optimism of the Arab Spring and the Occupy Movement to the election of Donald Trump. Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere is directed by David Lan and performed by Paul Mason, Khalid Abdalla, Sirine Saba and Lara Sawalha. It is directed for TV by Tim van Someren and produced by the Young Vic in partnership with Totally Theatre Productions.
S01E03 Flood: To The Sea 12/08/2017 Flood is the story of what happens when the world is destroyed and how those who survive try to make it new again. One day, it starts to rain and no one knows why. And it doesn't stop. Far out on the North Sea, a fisherman raises a girl in his net, miraculously alive, from the deep sea. Is she one of the migrants now washing up on English shores? Or someone sent for some higher purpose? Set in the aftermath of an apocalyptic event, which has seen England engulfed by water, this play asks a simple question: what if the fleeing masses from our TV screens and Twitter feeds, in their boats and their orange lifejackets, had English accents? A reimagining of the flood myth, it is the story of how the nation is destroyed by a global flood and tsunami wave. Presented on a floating stage in Hull's Victoria Dock, those left fight for survival. Performance Live is a risk-taking and pioneering new strand of programmes, generated through a partnership between BBC Arts, Arts Council England and Battersea Arts Centre, that brings some of the most innovative and exciting artists working in performance in England today to prime time Saturday night television on BBC Two in 2017 and 2018.
S01E04 Get A Round 26/08/2017 Get a Round is based on the hit Edinburgh Fringe show of the same name, made by the Manchester-based trio Eggs Collective, who make sharp, fun, culturally observational performances that fall somewhere in the cracks between theatre and cabaret. This is an all-singing, all-dancing performance with a bit of slapstick thrown in for good measure. They explore feminism and connection through the way they see the world and what they find funny. They write, perform and produce all of their own work. They are Sara Cocker, Lowri Evans and Leonie Higgins. The show is an exploration of politics under the guise of a girls' night out. In the face of continuing bad news and an increasingly divided and unequal Britain, this show asks how we can get through such confusion and look after each other in times of difficulty. It has been specially adapted for television as part of the Performance Live Strand. Through exploring the middle ground between live performance and television, this strand of programmes challenges audience perceptions around what live performance can be.
