Experimental piece looks at ambition and achievement
have worked to devise scenes and experiment with form and structure.
“This will be an experimental piece, working with sonic and visual artists to create a mood piece that explores people’s ambition to achieve and what stops them from achieving”, explains Aisha.
“We want to show people trying, failing but never giving up, despite hardship. It’s a play about the human will to keep going.”
Described as “part- gig, part- art installation” the show will be a rich, imaginative and wholly theatrical eventbasedonthelivesofreal people.
“I work with testimonies, gathered from people who’ve had real-life experiences, as well as working closely with thecasttodevelopcharacters from their own personal experiences,” says Aisha.
“In this way I try to retain the quality of authentic voices.”
