Rebellious theatre from Daniel Bye

His work, described by The Times as “the future of British theatre”  has already been creating a stir in the world of theatre, and now artist Daniel Bye shows you how you can do the same in the world of protest with How To Occupy an Oil Rig.

Produced by ARC the show enjoyed a wave of positive acclaims from its stint at Northern Stage at St Stephens in Edinburgh 2013, and now it is returning to ARC on Wednesday 26 March.

How To Occupy an Oil Rig sets out to explore all sorts of lessons to be learned in life, such how to behave on a protest march, how to cope with police interrogation and how to avoid becoming romantically involved with an undercover police officer; that sort of thing.
How-to demonstration meets literal style storytelling in this extraordinary new show set in the real world of the environmental protest movement. When a group of protestors occupied a North Sea oil rig in 2009, little did they suspect the lies and betrayals that would follow.
Daniel describes his theatrical approach as “immediate, playful, surprising and engaged with the world we all live in”. He has created work for the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Red Ladder and Pilot Theatre amongst others and has trained with Philippe Gaulier, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and the National Theatre Studio.

How to Occupy and Oil Rig follows an extended UK tour of his ever- popular work, The Price of Everything.

• ARC presents How to Occupy an Oil Rig by Daniel Bye on Wed 26 Mar at 7pm. Tickets are F: £12 C: £10 and can be purchased here.
