What would 'The Fifth Element' look like distorted by theatremakers, poets, comedians, musicians and performers?
FLIM NITE is a monthly performance event based at Three Minute Theatre in Manchester's Northern Quarter. At no point do we show the film in question!
Each of our performers has been given a chunk of 'The Fifth Element' to turn into something new. Come and watch as our acts transform a wacky sci-fi epic into something unrecognisable for your viewing pleasure.
We will not be showing a movie. We will be making a flim.
stand up and sketch comedian, one half of last year's Siân and Zoë's Luxury Cruise Through the Horrifying Vacuum of Space and this year's Sugar Coma Fever Nightmare and her solo show Lemon Torpedo at the Edinburgh Fringe!
fresh off his Australia and New Zealand tour AND Poet-in-Residency at Glastonbury, queer vegan poet Dom returns to his spiritual home on the FLIM stage before zooming off to Edinburgh!
singer and guitarist with Rocketship Forest (check their bandcamp), songwriter and musician in his own right and host of podcast / gig series The Headache Factory!
writer of fiction and playwright, founding member of the FIRST DRAFT team, maker of theatre at Faro Productions!
alternative comedian and theatremaker of solo show #DIGITALGOY and more in the pipeline!
We are very excited to welcome back some old faves and new faces so plz do join us on Monday for some space opera fun times!
There are a limited number of open mic slots available! Email us at [email protected]
for a slot. Remember it's flim as in FLIM and nite as in NITE. Got it? Slots are three minutes long and material must be 'The Fifth Element'-related (but you do get free reign of any part of the movie).
