Danny sleeps rough on the steps of St Paul's Cathedral. Has done this for years. Then one morning he wakes to see a canvas city being erected in front of him, and Danny finds himself swept up in the last occupation of London.

Tim Price's monologue explores the reality of the Occupy movement.

A fictional play, inspired by real events, this account of an unlikely hero allows us inside a remarkable political moment.

16 December 2013 - 11 January 2014

We have an Elephantom. He turned up on a Tuesday, just after tea-time.

At first, the little girl is thrilled to have a ghost-elephant living in her house. He makes life so much more fun! But Elephantoms are a bit too big for houses and before long, he is causing a lot of trouble.

The Elephantom was performed from 10 December 2013 - 11 January 2014.

Ours Was The Fen Country is listed with both the National Theatre - The Shed and Still House.

Presented by Still House/Dan Canham and MAYK
Created by Dan Canham

For the past two years Dan Canham has been capturing conversations with people of the fens in East Anglia. Eel-catchers, horse breeders and young farmers have all been interviewed.

In this ethereal piece of dance-theatre Dan and his team fuse movement and sound with the words and memories of their native collaborators to get to the heart of the Fens, a beautiful, bleak and mysterious expanse of flat land.

In a place where the soil is shrinking by the height of a person in the life of a person, Ours Was The Fen Country is a poetic look at a disappearing community and the inevitability of change.
