POV: you’re a vlogger. A productive (but chill!) DIYing vlogger. It’s the end of the world. What do you do when everyone’s left the internet? With disaster around the corner, one woman must use every hack, DIY solution, and mindfulness technique she knows to live her best life before it hits. Jessica Bickel-Barlow and Offie-nominated theatre company Part of
the Main deliver a surprising, tension-filled peek into the off-camera life of an influencer who has no idea you are watching her. This movement-led solo show is an innovative new play with no words about being your best self when no one will watch.
Part of the Main is a theatre company that champions new writing, emerging artists, and gender equality. We're passionate about new work that's political, provocative, and accessible. POTM is a Pleasance London Associate Company 2022-2024, and formerly a Resident Company of the Drayton Arms Theatre, 2018-2019.
Recent productions include FRITZ & MATLOCK (2x 2021 OFFIE nominations & Shortlisted for 2022 Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence), BLOODY MARY: LIVE! (Shortlisted for the 2020 Les Enfants Terribles Award, named one of The Guardian's top 20 'shows not to miss' at EdFringe 2022) and ALL BY MYSELF (“this subtle physical theatre is brilliantly original" ★★★★★ - Fringebiscuit).
In 2018, Artistic Director Olivia Munk launched PART OF THE GRID, a series of affordable and practical theatre training workshops that focused on backstage skills such as lighting, sound design, stage management, and producing. During lockdown, they went online, where the digital workshops have reached over 1,000 participants worldwide.
In August-September 2020, POTM co-produced the Virtual Collaborators Festival, which brought over 130 emerging and established artists together to create 40 new audio, theatre, & film performances. Digital performances were shared in August & a live festival took place at St. John’s Church in Waltham Forest in September. The festival was commissioned by Waltham Forest Council, funded by ACE, & supported by Soho Theatre, BOLD Elephant & the Albany Theatre.
As a current Associate Artist of The Pleasance, POTM recently curated a week of work-in-progress performances tackling the climate crisis entitled 'The Future Is Too Hot'.
