I blogged a few months back about the spoken word road-trip movie for theatres I’m making with director Peader Kirk. The show is called ‘No More Worries’ and has been co-commissioned by Apples and Snakes and the Albany.
As part of the final project we think we might like to shoot a series of extracts from the full piece in various locations as we tour the theatre performance – mini-films which viewed in sequence would tell the whole story of the show. The aim with this trial one (masterfully filmed and edited by Karim Kamar as part of our Arts Council funded R&D phase) was to get close to the vibe of what it is like seeing me perform the piece live, but mix that up with a few more cinematic flourishes here and there. Hope you enjoy it!
Hiya, just a quick one to let you know that over the summer I’m going to be doing more blogging over at the website for my new show No More Worries.
“Ever wanted to get away from it all? Kieran is 27 and stuck in a dead-end town. He wants to see the world. Paul is passing through, 55 and on the road again, one holiday snap at a time. No More Worries takes this mismatched couple on a road-trip to the edge. Sometimes, the past is the only thing you can’t leave behind.”
The show is a collaboration with theatre maker Peader Kirk, who also creates Live Art and site-specific performance. Having worked together in a more traditional director/performer relationship on my first show (Indiana Jones and the extra chair), this time around the piece is evolving through a collaborative process that moves between devising and writing.
Join us for one of the scratch sharings listed below – we’d love to hear your thoughts on the piece so far. If you can’t make it along in person, you can still interact with the show through the website.
