‘I am just you, with one of the dials tuned to a station that I can't switch off. You with a dial jammed. That's all.’
The Shape of the Pain
Conceived and Directed by Rachel Bagshaw
Written by Chris Thorpe
[Currently in development]
When the brain reprogrammes itself into constant fight or flight mode, how does it cope, how do you cope, how does your partner cope?
‘I’m just you, with one of the dials tuned to a station that I can't switch off. You with a dial jammed. That's all.'
This one-woman show weaves together words and sound to explore living a life in extremity and the joy that can be found there.
A new piece about love, perception and constant pain.
