About Whole: Work in Progress

“My sister smells of woodsmoke, warm earth, oranges and dust.” Whole is a solo show about two people. One of them is on stage, the other isn’t. In some parts of the world people believe that twins share a soul, so how can you be a twin alone? Using autobiographical story-telling, immersive soundscapes, song and striking visual imagery, Whole is an exploration of complex grief, identity and belief systems; a raw, tender, messy love story, a wound splashed in whiskey and haunted by ghosts. Beautifully honest and tender, this is a wander through the shadows of a bluebell wood at dusk, a map of a life written across two bodies, a deep dive into what it means to lose the person who makes us Whole. Made in collaboration with award-winning theatre-maker Jamie Wood. Age Recommendation: 16+ This performance may contain: Strong language and heightened emotion that may be unsettling for younger audiences. Minor drug use references. Flashing / strobe lights & Haze. Details of death and grief.
