Thu 01 Jan 1970 - Thu 01 Jan 1970
Meet Nel: a foley artist. Dont know what that is? She makes sound for films. In her world a tyre-screech is a hot water-bottle and an epic fight scene is composed of frozen cabbages and snapping rhubarb. But for the first time in her life, she finds herself completely alone. Her cats died and she accidentally poisoned her fish. She needs a friend. But she is afraid. In a world of continuous self-comparison she feels inadequate and finding a friend in todays world is more than a little stressful. Especially for someone who spends her day recording sounds with vegetables in a box. She needs help.
An intriguing combination of folk-tale, on-stage foley artistry and physical theatre, Scratchworks latest production will delight audiences with their perfectly crafted mix of live music and movement, while examining issues surrounding identity, friendship and what it means to be an introvert.
Scratchworks Theatre company were the winners of the NSDF Fringe Award: Overall Body of Creative Work, 2013.
The versatility of the performers is both wonderful to watch as they flit from character to character, as well as impressive. The on-stage foley artistry is a perfect match for a company that love to use theatrical tricks, from puppetry to their quirky and brilliant physicality.
