Cornerstone will keep creating!

Following government advice about Coronavirus, Cornerstone Arts Centre is currently closed to the public. Visit our blog post for more information on this closure: here.

Cornerstone Arts Centre is still Didcot's community hub even in this unprecedented time where we can't be physically open. We will continue to illuminate theatre, visual arts, community spirit and everything else under our umbrella in the best way we possibly can online. 

For a while, our website is going to look a little different. We are creating pages with details of our new digital initiatives including virtual galleries, streaming theatre and bringing classes into your living rooms so you can enjoy us even during this period. We will continue to be a community resource and we look forward to seeing you again in person when this is all over.

Everything I See I Swallow

“I’m not just an object. I’ve made a choice. To be here, to be tied, and… not to deny my sexuality.”   

Fresh from the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival where they won 2 awards - The Scotsman’s Fringe First and Broadway World’s best circus/physical show, Shasha & Taylor Productions bring their debut show Everything I See I Swallow to Cornerstone Arts Centre as part of an autumn 2019 tour.

An art curator discovers that her daughter has amassed over 50,000 followers by posting semi-naked images of herself on Instagram. Is this freedom of expression or exploitation and what is the difference? When does art become pornography and vice versa? How does a mother protect her daughter and when does protection become control?

Set against a backdrop of shifting generational attitudes to empowerment, feminism and sexuality and fusing theatre and aerial work with the erotic art of Japanese rope bondage - shibari, Everything I See I Swallow is a fascinating exploration of epic themes in an intimate setting.  

Commissioned by The Lowry and supported by Arts Council England and Caterham School
