Comprising artists James McColl, Dan R Davis and Raff Highgate-Betts, First Line Theatre strives to take live performance out of gallery spaces, making work outside of typical art spaces. We believe art is for anyone and everyone.

Heart & Lungs ︎
@ Plymouth Fringe Festival online 

Heart & Lungs is an ode to failed relationships.

Exploring the life-cycle of a romantic relationship from two perspectives, in an intimate look at the things we say to the people we love when no one else is around. In a time when more and more of our communication is done through our phones and online, how much are we actually saying to each other?

From the very first date to the last goodbye, Heart & Lungs is for anyone who has loved and lost, and had enough hope to do it all over again.

Basic Space ︎

People passing all around. Cars, voices, noises blurring into background sound. Faces one by one fading into the distance.

Basic Space explores how easy it can be to feel completely alone on a busy city street. People bustling all around. Nameless faces passing by. The isolation that can be felt in the every day, even when surrounded by people. For intimate audiences, each audience member is given a headset connected to pre-recorded audio as we journey through the city together.

A companion piece, Living Space ︎ is a durational live performance exploring our relationships with space, living space and the connections that we create with and within it.
