Caravan of Love by Eggs Collective

Monday, 25 April 2016 (All day) - Thursday, 28 April 2016 (All day)

 

‘Caravan of Love’ in and around Preston between 25th - 28th April, various times.

 

We want you to help create a Power Ballad for Preston – so go and find the Eggs Collective and tell us your stories of love!

Part of the ‘Hit the North’ project developed by They Eat Culture, which explores ideas of Northerness from here in Preston.  

Eggs Collective will be taking a mini-break, stopping off at sites around Preston. Anyone can drop in and talk about love – in fact, if you don’t how will the world know what Preston’s idea of Love is?

Over the course of the week the stories collected will be woven together to create the ultimate gift a town can have: its very own power ballad.

 

Hoping to delve into the hearts of the people of Preston, Eggs Collective want to know what love is and create a unique portrait of the town, which will be unveiled at the end of the week, complete with billowing veils and candles. This will be followed by a performance of Late Night Love, a funny and angry show about expectation, romance and Richard Gere.

 

Preston’s Power ballad will be unveiled before Late Night Love on 28 April.

 

“We are really excited about coming to Preston and making a power-ballad with the general public. We hope to hear all sorts of stories from all sorts of people, to see if we can get any closer to working out what love is”Eggs Collective

 

Hit the North, which is supported by Arts Council England and Lancashire County Council, has seen They Eat Culture explore ideas of ‘Northernness’ through presenting and producing work across the city and county, who we are and what we’re about, in a world of ‘northern powerhouses’ and devolution.

 

There will be more Hit the North projects happening over the next 6 months at the Train Station, and if you head to They Eat Culture's website you can find out more, and help us understand what you think Northernness is.

 

‘Late Night Love’ at The Continental on Thursday 28th April, 8pm.

 

 

Somewhere in the static between radio stations, Eggs Collective present Late Night Love, a tender and ridiculous show that clambers up your drainpipe with a rose between its teeth.
 

Inspired by the confessional radio show of the same name, Late Night Love is an unflinching attempt to unpick the truth from the fiction of chocolate boxes and untangle expectations of adulthood from the promise of power ballads.
 

Raw-edged and warm-hearted, tune in to Late Night Love, where teenage crushes wrangle with the reality of romance, saxophones cry and secrets crackle from radios in the dark.
 

'Salty work at the boundaries of theatre and cabaret… sly satire under a veil of sweetness’ The New York Times

‘Caravan of Love’ / ‘Late Night Love’, commissioned by HOME and They Eat Culture. Developed with support from Fuel and public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Created in collaboration with Olivier Award-winning director Mark Whitelaw.

Join Eggs Collective and the ‘Caravan of Love’ in and around Preston between Monday 25th and Thursday 28th April.
