Supporting Letter Chloe Whipple BikeShed Theatre





To whom in may concern,



Josh Lucas, is an exciting and creatively ambitious artists based in Exeter and we are glad to be supporting his next show ‘I wanna dance with somebody!’.  Josh scratched his work with us last year and now we are please to be offering him a weeks r&d space and a slot in our scratch program in April, as well as providing him with a days worth of mentoring during the development of the project.   Our relationship with supporting Josh goes back to 2013 when he performed in From Devon with Love festival and it is encouraging to have seen his work grow and mature over the past few years.   A graduate from Exeter University, who decided to stay, artists like Josh are integral to the developing artistic ecology in Exeter.

We are looking forward to continuing to support Josh Lucas as his practice and work grows.


All the best,

Chloe Whipple.

Good fun. Loved it!

Great energy!/ Great Fun!/Great audience involvement!

Awesome energy – really good at getting audience involved.

Haven’t seen audience interaction done that well since Jamie Wood’s show here

A subject that is hidden by the people who suffer from it. Enjoyed how you explored it.

I enjoyed the audience participation and not caring about looking silly together, very enjoyable.

This has A LOT of potential.

A heartfelt exploration of dancing and human connection

Used science and dancing to give me that fuzzy feeling

A winning and honest show about how we connect with those around us
