Studio 3 Arts

Barking theatre company Studio 3 Arts is launching a fringe arts festival.

CLOUT! will take place at the Boundary Road studio across three weekends, starting on July 12.

There’ll be 21 artists and companies performing puppetry shows, dance, drama, poetry and comedy.

Studio 3’s artistic director Liza Vallance said: “Curating the festival felt like choosing the best sweets from a fantastic pick’n’mix.

“The quality and breadth of work on offer is superb, there’s something for everyone in this festival. Risky, provocative, funny, joyful – it’s all in there.”

There will be performances from Barking’s John Akinde, who will provide a commentary on regeneration and gentrification, and Michael Bertenshaw, who, after playing Antonio in Studio 3’s Merchant of Venice, will be showcasing his two-man comedy show. Katie Greenall will also be performing her show Fatty Fat Fat, an autobiographical piece on fatness and society judgement.

Tickets start from £5. For the full programme and to buy tickets, visit studio3arts.org.uk.
