Palomar Theatre was founded in the summer of 2017 by graduates of the University of the West of England (UWE) as a means of staging the subconscious and exploring vulnerability and shame. Our first production, Darlings, was performed publicly as a scratch performance at UWE Bower Ashton Campus Theatre in December 2017, to a critical audience of lecturers and UWE students, and an invited audience of young and seasoned industry professionals. With the feedback collected from this event, we re-developed the show, and performed Darlings again at the Bath Fringe in June and in two previews in Bristol. We are taking Darlings to the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
- To bring subconscious motivations behind behaviour to the forefront of the stage.
- To explore human behaviour as a spectrum rather than through a binary understanding of good/bad, normal/ abnormal.
- To harness empathy as a tool to heal.
