Rotherhithe | Immersive Theatre | Brunel Museum

Medusa in the Thames Tunnel

A new immersive show revisiting the myth of Medusa through intimate and sensory theatre, contemporary dance, shadow puppetry, sound installations and interactive audience experiences. A contemporary take on a well-known myth offering perspective on what it takes for women to be considered monsters.

About 27 Degrees

27 degrees is a multicultural collective of artists who create sensory audience experiences in unusual spaces. We perform in lifts, public spaces, museums, creepy basements, or in the middle of woods. Our work interweaves theatre with music, circus, dance, puppetry and installation to create immersive journeys that appeal to the widest possible audiences. With an artistic voice that is both visual and physical, we revisit traditional stories that resonate with the contemporary world.

Richard Davenport Cosi fan Tutte at Brunel Museum

The venue: The Thames Tunnel Shaft

The company’s favourite venues to perform in, this atmospheric, underground tunnel shaft is one of our most popular events each season for a totally unique experience! With the added treat of being able to drink delicious cocktails and toast marshmallows round the fire afterwards in the beautiful Midnight Apothecary Cocktail Garden, on site.

Part of the fascinating Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe, this place is like an extraordinary underground cathedral. The performance area is an incredible cylindrical shaft built by Brunel as pedestrian entrance to the Thames Tunnel. This is a unique and atmospheric show. New improved access by ramp and full height doorway gives to a staircase down to the lower chamber. A viewing platform high inside the shaft offers balcony seating for a limited number of people: priority given to those with impaired mobility or using a wheelchair. Serving delicious cocktails before the performance and during the interval in the museum’s Midnight Apothecary Garden. Not to be missed! Please note, this venue is underground and the temperature may be cool, so bring a sweater.

Facilities at this venue include:

  • Toilets in the main museum
  • Museum
  • Cafe & Midnight Apothecary pop up bar

Please note that the temperature in the tunnel shaft may be cool, so bring some warm clothes. If you have a problem with stairs please let the company know and they can book you seats in the high level viewing platform.

Totally Thames Festival Logo

Totally Thames Festival 2017

Totally Thames is an annual season of surprising, diverse and accessible arts and culture throughout the month of September. The programme is curated and managed by the Thames Festival Trust, with activity taking place on, beneath, and along the River Thames.

Launched in 2014, Totally Thames emerged from the idea to expand and replace the hugely successful two-day Thames Festival along the South Bank and Bankside that ran from 1997 -2013.

The month-long programme runs along the 42-mile stretch of the Thames through working collaboratively with artists, local communities, river interest organisations and businesses.

They aim to inspire, surprise and enthral through their programme

  • Spotlight the river with excellent, surprising and spectacular art
  • Champion a diverse and sustainable creative riverfront
  • Inspire the next generation of river ambassadors
  • Create unique and innovative opportunities to discover and learn
  • Support and nurture emerging artistic talent, placing the River Thames at the heart of new work
  • Each year we run an open call for events to be part of our programme these range from pop-up performances, boating events, art installations, River clean-ups, live performances, talks, workshops and much more.

They commission and support artists from all disciplines to create new work that spotlights the river and its rich heritage. The Thames is part of the fabric of London life, and has been since time immemorial. Its relationship to urban and rural surroundings is ever-changing, and this vibrancy lends itself to creating extraordinary and surprising artistic experiences.

Totally Thames forms part of the artistic programme delivered by the Thames Festival Trust that was set up in 1997 by Adrian Evans. The mission of Thames Festival Trust to increase the appreciation of rivers and their importance to us all through creating and promoting river and river-related art, education and heritage programmes.
