A Desperate Dictionary
Our video archive spans over 30 years and ranges from early, experimental shows to coverage of our latest productions. We've taken clips from a variety of silly, beautiful, musical, anarchic, serious and hilarious videos that demonstrate different aspects of our work and collected them into a dictionary of Desperation. It's also an alphabet of our shows - so if you know you're looking for the Ghastly Family, click through on G.
Many thanks to all those who have contributed over the years to this catalogue of charming collaborative chaos; from performers to costume-makers and set-builders to all the audiences - and to the Theatre Collection at Bristol University who are sorting through and storing our paper archive.
Happy Desperate browsing!
