“See the thing about 8 seconds is that it’s a damned sight longer than you think. A whole lot can happen in 8 seconds. Just you watch.”

Rosie Abbot wants to ride bulls. The world doesn’t want her to. She’s gonna do it anyway.

Kick the Dirt present BULLS***: a white-knuckle ride into the world of Professional Bull Riding, exploring identity, gender, power, and the lengths we are willing to go to for the things we love to do. This is a show about the roles we get given – and the ones we choose.

Employing physical theatre, projection and a minimalist set, this is the first public sharing of an exciting new piece of devised ensemble theatre currently being developed by Theatre Royal Plymouth supported company Kick the Dirt.

BULLS*** is produced in association with The Narwhal Ensemble and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Audience feedback:
“ Gorgeous work – there’s a strong sense of identity, place and all the smells and textures that come with it.”
“ A full-length piece in the making… The most intriguing piece of the evening.”

Directed by Nicole Redfern.

Chilled performance – Thu 13 Dec, 8pm
A chilled performance takes a more casual approach to noise and movement in the auditorium, but the performance itself is unchanged.
This performance is ideal for people who feel more at ease knowing they can go in and out of the auditorium during the show.
