Winter Solstice with Maketank
A deep dive into release, rest, and renewal in the depth of winter for Maketank's community in Exeter and beyond
Winter solstice is fast approaching!
Please join us in honoring the longest night of the year in this longest of years.
The days have been getting shorter and the year is finally drawing to a close. As the sun sets on 2020, we’re making some celebratory preparations to welcome 2021 with open arms.
On Sunday the 20th December at 7:30pm, Maketank warmly invites you and your family to join us for a remote evening of restful, yet playful, reflection.
2020 has been a whirl so let’s take this moment of seasonal turning to wind-down. The winter solstice is a date for celebratory renewal through some well deserved rest and rejuvenation. Let’s snuggle up and take stock, be still and let some of the swilling things settle for an hour and half. What we propose isn’t a jam-packed event of Zoom-inars, discussion and new information. Rather, it’s a moment to share what we already have to hand. We will hold a welcoming online space, sprinkled with soft provocations. We invite you to bring some snippets of stories, creative musings and causes for celebrations this year. Amidst all of the challenges and difficulties of the past 12 months, let’s pan for those little nuggets of gold that have happened and tender some reasons for us all to be hopeful.
If a cosy night by your fireplace, electric heater, radiator or terra cotta tea lights sounds like the evening for you, join us on Zoom to celebrate. And don't forget to follow our social media with the #MaketankWinterSolstice for more tasters and teasers throughout the week!
Maketank supported and hosted TWO major events in the Worldwide Reading Project of Andrei Kureichik's indomitable play Insulted Belarus.
The UK premiere of Kureichik’s play in translation by John Freedman happened on 19 September 2020. This reading was organised and performed by ARTEL as well as a cast of local Devon actors from Four of Swords, Burn the Curtain and students from the University of Exeter. Watch it here.
The second event was the first and only-to-date all-female cast reading of the play presented by young artists and students at the University of Exeter. Watch it here.
The House Never Wins
Kill the Cat Theatre
Our House is on fire. Come play live and gamble with the planet’s future.
We could all do with a distraction. Take a seat at the table, get ready to play. (There’s a real cash prize at stake.) The House is on fire.
