, vocal gymnast and word cutter-upper extraordinaire Hannah Silva uses multiple art forms to dissect and parody political language, revealing the meaning, music and meaninglessness beneath the rhetoric of today's (big?) society. The audience pick up their name badges and become delegates at a political conference remixed as David Cameron's Big Society speech, the Weather, the News, slang, live Twitter feeds and Winston Churchill all get cut up and recomposed using a loop pedal, a tin whistle, and her extraordinary vocal gymnastics. Funded by the Arts Council England, the Arts Unit, Plymouth City Council and supported by Apples and Snakes. Running time: approx. 50mins Opposition website
