Tracy Says Sit in the White Box. (2011)
This was the company's debut work, which was first performed at The Basement's Supper Club followed by Brighton Fringe 2012.
The audience enter into an atmospheric world of the night before. The intensity builds through a questionable state of the conscience mind, unpicking personalities and relationships.
Tracy says sit in the white box, masks and perverts reality using misconception and confusion. The structure of reality is unfastened allowing for new proximities to appear between performer and audience. Through curious text and fragmented gesture the work disentangles the mystery of Tracy.
Tracy is ...or is she? Left wanting more this short work invites the audience to piece together an event of absurdity.
Of Course My Shirt Was Worn For You (2014)
Lauren is Madonna and Nixx is Botticelli...this piece is about us, our bodies and your attitude.
Of Course My Shirt Was Worn For You is looking at society's perception of the woman's body; how the media portrays a dangerous paradigm of what a woman's body should adhere to. Ritual, movement, comedy, dance, text and skin.

220 Words (2012)
220 words was a piece choreographed Nixx Eastwood-Freeman and performed by undergraduates from the University of Chichester.
The work explores the question 'what is the relationship between womens devaluation in langauge and their devaluation in society?'
Addressing sexism in the 1960s and the language used in Henry Miller's Sexus, the piece articulates different relationships to language through physical / body language, spoken language and the language of signs.
And the Ugly (2016)
2 weeks. 2 women. 2 stories. 1 show.
Armed with a bench and a teapot, Nixx and Susie come together to explore the most prevalent issues in day to day life. Through love and loss, friendship and mental health, they provide an honest account of a shared experience.
Nixx and Susie have played with unconventional methods of creating work, choosing to write in short “episodes” before piecing them together to form a compelling narrative that reflects the way life is shared over a series of conversations between friends.
Experimenting with movement and the art of story telling to bring you tears, laughter and guilt-free wine.
THE GOOD, THE BAD. . .
"And the Ugly" was a wild and intense exploration of female friendship, fuelled by large quantities of tea and wine. (It reminded me of Homer Simpson's wise words about alcohol: "The cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems.") The on-stage chemistry between you made a powerful double act. Paul Whitlock 2016
