We Are Ian
1989. Manchester. A frenzy of drugs, beats and bucket hats. Illegal raves. Acid parties…
Just jumping up and down in a field and sticking up two fingers to Thatcher. Remember it? We don’t. We weren’t even born. But Ian was. And Ian does remember. We’ve got f*ck all now. So, we’re going back to 1989. We’re gonna get off our peanuts. We’re gonna bounce around like idiots. And Ian’s going to show us how. We’re mad fer it. And you will be too. Let’s party…

ABOUT IN BED WITH MY BROTHER
In Bed With My Brother is Nora, Dora and Kat. We are three performance makers and three best friends. We use real-life stories. We make a massive song and dance of the mundane, a messy, multimedia mish-mash of clowning, dance routines and lip-syncing. We don’t use scripts. We’re not always sure exactly what it is we do. We’re just glad that this threesome wasn’t a one night stand.
★★★★★ “Be Ian, be you but really, just be in this audience." A Younger Theatre
★★★★★ “Demonstrates how having a dance can be a defiantly political act. You need to experience it for yourselves.” Three Weeks
