Blind: one-woman show at the Soho Theatre
The Paper Birds will present Blind, performed by Grace Savage, at the Soho Theatre in central London, from 13 to 25 July 2015, with an official opening on 15 July.
The production will be directed by Jemma Mc Donnell, with set and costume design by Fiammetta Horvat, sound by Darren Perry and lighting by Kylie Walsh.
Synopsis: "Tuning in and out of news broadcasts, playground gossip, beatbox battles and drunken brawls, beat by beat, Grace Savage revisits her teenage years, reflecting on who and what helped shaped the person she is today. A mash up of pulsating bass, circus acts and silhouettes develop as the gentle and cautious Grace, searching for her voice, grows into the tougher, beatboxing Savage".
Grace Savage said: "As a beatboxer and an actress, Blind is one of the most refreshing, unique and exciting projects that I have had the privilege to work on in my career so far. There are a few beatboxing shows floating around but I think we have created something truly unique and theatrical in a way that has never been seen before. Blind is about challenging perceptions, exploring identity and just opening our eyes that little bit more....coloured with some serious bass from my face along the way."
