Join us for the opening night of the Frivolous Convulsions, with a collection of performances from Robin Bale, Jack Catling and Vanessa Mitter based around the theme of the duende.

What or who is the duende? An indefinable spirit, an imp, a devil, a conjurer, an alchemist, a demon? A source of fiery mystery, the duende may arise from within, from somewhere unknown, and hold an audience captive to its deceptive charms. ‘There is no map, no formula to seek the duende. We only know that it burns the blood like glass, that it drains you, that it rejects all the sweet geometry you have learned, that it breaks with style’
