CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
The uniqueness of the project lies in the equal significance given to each element of the production: audio technology, choreography and text. The story of Almost Blue
lends itself perfectly to this: the central character, Simon, is blind and suffers from synaesthesia, through which he experiences sound as colours. Alone in his room he surfs the airwaves with his audio-scanner, through which he follows the trail of a murderer with a cold, green voice. Grace is the police officer brought in to investigate the case - a case in which each of the murders appears to have been perpetrated by the previous victim. With no suspects, and a blind man - Simon - as her only witness, Grace becomes lost in a city of ghosts and doppelgangers. Her determination to identify the killer places her and her witness at the scene of one final chilling and personal act.Performers Benjamin Duke, Eddie Kay.
