SynopsisYou are invited to a lecture. You know that the subject is probably important and it would be useful to hear what the speaker has to say but you can't keep your eyes open. You will fall asleep and you will dream. But you won't be alone in your dream; everyone else will be there with you. And you will have a chaperone who knows the landscape and will attend to you. So nothing can go wrong...unless...no...just close your eyes. Fiction is a performance using binaural sound and absolute darkness. It is an anxious journey through the sprawling architecture of our dreams and an excercise in empathy. Or is it an opportunity to have a 60 minute nap

SynopsisTells the story of boxer Jay Jackson, the first African-American Heavyweight Champion of the World. It is loosely based on the real-life story of Jack Johnson, whose story is one of great talent and triumph, but also racism and injustice. Despite Johnson being one of the greatest fighters who had ever lived, one newspaper wrote at the time of his first title fight: 'If the black man wins, thousands and thousands of his ignorant brothers will misinterpret his victory as justifying claims to much more than mere physical equality with their white neighbors.'

SynopsisThe Habit of Art is set in a National Theatre rehearsal room and has a play-within-a-play structure. We meet a group of actors who, abandoned by their director for the day, rehearse a run-through of the play Caliban's Day - the subject of which is an imagined meeting between poet W. H. Auden and composer Benjamin Britten. Britten, sailing uncomfortably close to the wind with his new opera, Death in Venice, seeks advice from his former collaborator and friend. The drama that unfolds between the two men is mirrored to great comic and theatrical effect between the actors portraying them in the rehearsal room.
