Returning for its 15th year, this 10 day festival offers a bright and inspiring snapshot of contemporary theatre with established and emerging artists both local and those from further afield.

Opening PULSE are Britain’s hottest young acrobats, the all-male trio Barely Methodical Troupe with Bromance, described as “a jaw-dropping magnificent show” by The Stage. The witty and inventive mix of flawlessly-timed acrobatics, shoulder-high balances and a stunning routine inside a spinning metal, who said guys couldn’t multi-task?!?

Other highlights of PULSE 2015 include Inua Ellams The Spalding Suite which is inspired by the UK’s basketball sub-culture and mixes live beatboxing, hip-hop, music, moves and poetry, now there’s a fusion to cause confusion.

PULSE wouldn’t be PULSE without a chance to catch an early glimpse of ideas that artists are working on right now. Among the artists sharing work in progress on Scratch Day (30 May) are Christopher Brett Baily and Kazuko Hohki.

Tickets to events are a snip at a fiver for those under 26, but fear not frugal festival goers, not to be missed is the free music in the New Wolsey bar each evening to entice the non theatre going folk of Ipswich and beyond. You can also catch Life In A Suitcase and Hurtling an offsite audio theatre experience for one person at a time for the grand total of its FREE. | | @Pulse Ipswich | @NewWolsley | #Pulse2015
