New Diorama Theatre announces new spring 2024 season

The New Diorama Theatre has unveiled its Spring 2024 season of shows.

Set to run from 30 January – 13 April, the new season has been co-programmed by incoming Artistic Director Bec Martin and outgoing Artistic Director David Byrne.

This season is a diverse line up of performances, presenting brilliant new work from across the independent UK theatre scene. From award-winning ensemble physical theatre to celebrated performance art, the offerings range from the satirical and comic to the intensely political and personal.

The season opens with Ephemeral Ensemble’s Rewind, a critically acclaimed piece exploring Latin American refugee stories. Making its London debut after successful runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and international tours, the show is a multi-award-winning work by migrant-led international theatre makers.

February brings It’s A Motherf**king Pleasure by Flawbored, a sharp disability satire and 2023 Untapped Award winner. Returning to NDT following its debut in Edinburgh and New York, the show precedes a national tour.

ELOINA’s body-positive and labia-loving High Steaks joins the lineup for a two-week stint. This sensation, known for its celebratory dismantling of taboos, features performances in the nude and live meat frying on stage, following sell-out dates across the UK and critical acclaim.

The season concludes with Katie Arnstein’s The Long Run, produced in association with Grace Dickson Productions. Directed by Bec Martin, this captivating and joyful comedy about love, cancer, and long journeys has already garnered significant praise.

Bec Martin expressed said: “It’s a unique opportunity to collaborate with David, an artistic director I greatly admire. We’re programming artists we both support and love. It’s a goodbye, a hello, and a commitment to the collaborative artistic practice and support that has been a hallmark of our past.”

David Byrne reflected on his tenure and the upcoming season: “Leaving New Diorama is made easier by knowing it’s in Bec’s capable hands. This season is a conversation between works we both admire. As my time here ends, I’m proud that collaboration has been central to our ethos. I’ll be eagerly watching these brilliant shows from the audience.”
