Another double-bill featured in week 4 of the Yard Theatre' festival of contemporary theatre.


Peering in at the nuts and bolts, the muscle and bone.

A theatrical collaboration between a pole dancer and a guitarist, a composition in exploded view.

With a mischievous agenda, the performance invites in the mucky subjects of shame, power and privilege.

And takes them dancing.

From award-winning theatremaker and guitarist Keir Cooper and writer, theatremaker and Miss Pole Dance UK finalist Rose Biggin.


After last year’s critically acclaimed debut in NOW ‘15, the ever-exuberant Ponyboys return to The Yard with new show FCKSYSTMS.

Directed by award-winning theatre-maker Chris Goode, the all-male Ponyboy Curtis ensemble has been described as an ‘experimental performance boyband’.

Angry, joyous and suffused with eroticism, a night with the Ponyboys is at once an invitation to intimacy and a call to revolution.
