Back to Ours are back again for the next school holidays, with their May half-term festival running from 24th May to 1st June 2019.
There are 3 family shows at community venues across Hull, one for ages 0+, one for ages 5+ and one for older children age 14+.
Hoopla Clique and Cluster Arts present Chores. Inspired by slapstick legends Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, the side-splitting duo of Chores is coming to Back to Ours. Two excitable brothers are definitely, probably, maybe, just about to, almost, at some stage, going to do the chores their mum has asked them to get on with… With skilled stunts and uproarious, interactive gags, and with very little spoken dialogue, children and their big people will find themselves on the edge of their seats and giggling until the chores are done…if they get done…

Tue 28th May – 11am & 2pm. Wilberforce Sixth Form College, Hull

Back to Ours present High Horse. A mysterious travelling fairground gallops into town, with a sideshow hosted by The Great and Powerless Peter and his All-Powerful Troupe. Ride their High Horse, take up the reigns of power, and make your mark in The Scripture of Rules for Very Naughty Adults. Roll up, roll up! Your quill awaits…

London Artists Projects present Truth to Power Café. Hull people of all beliefs and backgrounds have been invited to take part in Truth to Power Café and respond to the question, ‘Who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?’ in front of a live audience. Will they address their parents, a sibling, politician, lover, landlord, neighbour, colleague, boss, banker, their best friends – or someone else? Whoever it is, it’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.
