Out Of Darkness
Out of Darkness was first created as part of my studies for The Thomas Pratkki Centre in Berlin. I wanted to write about my childhood growing up in rural Yorkshire, and to use my personal experiences to examine questions of identity. What do we give up in order to enter the world of adulthood, and at what cost to ourselves? As I delved deeper into my own past, I discovered a hidden animalistic side to myself – a primal new way of relating to the world.
Directed by Rosamond Martin, this project employs aerial silk and spoken word performance. It was supported by Jackson’s Lane Theatre and first performed at The Place, for Resolution Festival in 2020.
