cross-disciplinary collective

Ulita are a unique new voice in music-driven theatre, focused on creating immersive, visceral work from unexpected points of view. Their debut show 'What Happened to Agnes' was co-produced by Opera North through their Resonance scheme, and toured nationally with support from Arts Council England. They're currently in the R&D phase, for a new show ‘Sister, ’ which has been selected as part of Mercury Musical Developments’ BEAM, a showcase for new British musical theatre.

Shrews came together in 2019 to celebrate their love of the great jazz vocalists through history - from Billie Holiday, through Betty Carter, to Cécile McLorin Salvant. The quartet flit playfully between these influences as they rework songs from the Great American Songbook and beyond, emerging with their own unique and colourful sound. They firmly believe that these ‘beloved’ songs, often packed with hideous messages about gender and race, should be presented truthfully - exploring the ugliness within this beautiful music.

Trampette first came together in the summer of 2017, and have been tirelessly writing, rehearsing, and performing since.

Inspired by artists such as Herbie Hancock, Makaya McCraven, and Soweto Kinch, the instrumental quartet formed in order to explore their love of groove music. They give high-energy performances designed to get people dancing, and recently supported Alfa Mist at Hare and Hounds.

The band are currently working on their debut EP, set to be released later this year.
