All The Journeys I Never Took
I am currently working with a group of incredible women who I admire immensely. Produced by Lucy English, directed by Raquel Meseguer, designed by Synnove Fredericks and written and performed by me, All The Journeys I Never Took, is an immersive spoken word show, funded by The Arts Council, for one audience member at a time, offered in a secret location in the heart of the city.
With the cityscape framed, the audience become a voyeur to the bustle around. Here we take the time to be, to listen, to let our senses roam. A personal story. A story that explores what it is like to leave behind the middle man- lover, father, priest- and discover our place in the world. A space that echoes with unravelling journeys, break ups, first dates, family, confidences. Here we ask the audience to take an active role. Here we mutter poems of love, of loss, of the human. The city provides our actors and backdrop. Here the everyday is elevated.
Phantom Laundry is poetry and music stage that runs at Shambala festival. Alongside programming our incredible stage I am Co-Project Manager for the Phantom Laundry Workshop Tent.
