Emily Alden: In My Head
Running Time: 30 Minutes
A dancer wrestles with sound as it misbehaves in ways you wouldn’t expect. Sometimes it engulfs you and other times it’s on the tip of your tongue. It’s flirtatious, it hooks you into stories and sends you on your not so merry way to a corner of a room where it’s quiet, and you’re alone.
In My Head is a live, one woman dance theatre performance, with original sound design, crafted dance & gesture, poetry & text. A personal and universal exploration of hearing loss.
Created, choreographed and performed by Emily Alden, with original sound design by Daniel Hayes (Alesandra Seutin, Tony Adigun, Caroline Bowditch) and dramaturgy with theatre director and BSL interpreter Sue MacLaine.
The work is currently in development after a period of R&D supported with a Developing Your Creative Practice award from Arts Council England. There will be a series of 'Work in Progress' sharing's at the Kneehigh Barns in mid September 2019 as part of the Kneehigh Present's programme, and final rehearsals in early spring 2020 with preview performances prior to touring in 2020/21.
There will be an Artist Talk with Emily and Dan Hayes the Sound Designer after the 7:30pm showing on Saturday 14th September.
Thursday 12th September at 7:30pm
Friday September 13th at 5:30pm
Saturday 14th September at 5:00pm and 7:30pm
