'I don't have to remember being in pain. I'm not sure that's something we can do. And in my case, it's irrelevant. You can't remember something that's still happening.'


Chris Thorpe (Confirmation, I Wish I Was Lonely) previews his new show in collaboration with Rachel Bagshaw, before heading to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

One woman attempts to articulate her experience of physical pain. Pain with no apparent cause. Also, she's met someone, and they want to make this work.

An experiment in how we talk about pain - and if we ever do that in a way someone else can understand. Told with an original sound score to create an explosive dialogue about love and perception.

A new show from this Scotsman Fringe First award-winning team exploring life in extremity and the joy that can be found there.

 

Presented by China Plate. Comissioned by Battersea Arts Centre and New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich. Supported by artsdepot. Funded by The Wellcome Trust and supported using public funds from The National Lottery through Arts Council England. 


Running Time: 70 mins
Age recommendation: 14+
