In My Head (2019/21) An extraordinary experience of ordinary, everyday sound.
A one woman dance theatre performance with original sound design, crafted dance & gesture, poetry & text. A personal & universal exploration of everyday sound & hearing loss.
Created & performed by Emily Alden & collaborators sound designer & composer Daniel Hayes (Alesandra Seutin, Tony Adigunn, Carolin Bowditch) & dramaturgy with theatre director & BSL interpreter Sue MacLaine.
The work is currently in development supported by Arts Council England with a successful Project Grant after a period of R&D supported with a Developing Your Creative Practice award & Hall For Cornwall where Emily is an Associate Artist. There will be a series of ‘Work in Progress’ sharings this September as part of the Kneehigh Presents Programme during The Asylum season & final rehearsals in early spring 2020 with Preview performances prior to touring. Emily’s mentor is Kiki Gale, her creative mentors are Rosemary Lee & Theo Clinkard.
This project was conceived with actress and musician Catherine Lake with initial support from Hall For Cornwall's 'Creation Space' programme; designed to give space and time to nurture new collaboration and ideas for artists based in Cornwall.
In My Head is supported by Arts Council England, Hall for Cornwall, Kneehigh Theatre & AMATA, Falmouth University.
