Ross Sutherland’s Imaginary Advice Live and How to Keep Time by Antosh Wojcik will be hitting venues across the UK in 2018.
Building on our history of touring pioneering live literature shows, we are delighted to be working with two of the UK’s most talented writer-performers on new solo productions this year.
Fresh from the success of his BBC Two commission Missing Episode, Penned in the Margins favourite Ross Sutherland has transformed his popular podcast Imaginary Advice into an evening of live entertainment. A poet and theatre-maker who has worked across film, TV and stage, Imaginary Advice Live combines true and imaginary stories – from a love story told in the middle of a drum and bass rave to tales that splice Jay-Z’s Black Album with an audioguide from Tate Modern. Dates are already confirmed at Bristol Old Vic and Latitude and Green Man Festivals. Expect to see Ross at a venue near you from July!
Maintaining our track record of supporting new and emerging artists, we are excited to be working with young writer and spoken word artist Antosh Wojcik on his first work for theatre. How to Keep Time: A Drum Solo for Dementia combines spoken word and live drumming to tell the moving story of Antosh’s grandparents’ memory loss. The show explores the effects of dementia on speech, memory and motor skills, using innovative percussive and vocal effects. We will be helping Antosh to bring this ambitious but intimate performance to Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August, before a full-scale national tour from Autumn 2018.
