THUD-THUMP in the soil.
Hard Work on the surface.
Nothing in the sky.

Noise is an immersive audio-performance that intervenes in and comments on the pace of modern life. The piece is set on a fictional Dartmoor, and follows two characters; an insomniac mole, and a dog-tired builder on two intertwined missions to find tranquillity in a world that’s lost its moon.

The story is told in darkness, using the second person tense, with an immersive speaker setup. During the show, objects are passed around the audience, correlating to the narrative, playing with smell and touch.

The piece tells a unique and contemporary tale of our relationship with the natural world in the style of a meditation tape.

Noise has been developed through sharings at Battersea Arts Centre and Soho Theatre, a residency at Bristol’s Arnolfini Gallery, and space at arts studio Kaleider. The debut performance was at The Bike Shed Theatre in March 2018.
