We have to live through metamorphosis to understand who we really are.’ Philomela, halfwoman, half-bird, is exiled deep in the forest. Tiresias, hears her call and comes to bear witness to her story, which echoes global issues of power, control, containment, trauma, language and silence. This experimental collaboration combines theatre, poetry, digital art and music in an immersive performance.
Vanitas Arts production 'Lady of Situations' is a collaboration between artist Shirley Harris and poet Seni Seneviratne. The performance is being overseen and directed by Amanda Huxtable who is currently an associate artist at Hull Truck Theatre. I am involved with the project as both a performer and collaborator. I have undertaken the role of 'Tiresias' the narrator of the piece.
Performed at Off The Shelf Festival 2016 in October at Moor Theatre Delicatessen in Sheffield. In November "Lady of Situations' was performed at Exchange Place Studios and at Bank Street Arts.
