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 (Kenneth Branagh, Jonathan Burrows).
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.
