ARC’s policy is to set ticket prices based on demand, like budget airlines, which means we set a price when the event goes on sale and then sometimes put the price up or down depending on how the show is selling. Usually, the price will increase as we get closer to the event, so it is advantageous to book in advance, although sometimes we will put special offers on and reduce the price. Our website will always show the current ticket price.
ARC’s theatre and dance performances are priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at ARC, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help ARC pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash on the door or by card at the Box Office.
Jules’s vision for the coming year is to expand their practice beyond their comfort zone and start creating new things they have no experience with yet.
They want to write a show exploring a combination of poetry, comedy, performance art, storytelling and maybe some musical elements. They want to tell stories about the neuroqueer, trans experience of inhabiting a human flesh vessel in these disabling times, focusing on pain, trauma, grief but also joy, resistance and becoming. It will be experimental, shocking, and they hope to learn many things in the process.
Jules has never written or produced an entire play before, let alone performed a one-person play, and having witnessed so many talented artists recently that have done just that, they are bursting with inspiration to get going.
During their week in residence at ARC, with the time and space to reflect, create, and experiment with taking creative risks, and breathing the air of a new environment; they feel this will kickstart the next chapter of their artistic journey.
