VOID workshop auditions, featuring Dougie Wood and Marvell Fayose.
But I didn’t want to keep breathing… I couldn’t believe that life would be resigned to this cycle, the rotation of in and out.
Do you ever feel like your life is subscribed to a routine? A monotonous cycle of thoughts and actions, attempting daily to feel fulfilled – to fulfil others... to fill your voids?
VOID is an exploration of the soul's anatomy. This striking piece of new writing by Birmingham-based writer Rumi Woolf breaks boundaries of form, linearity and storytelling in a unique participatory experience, bringing to the forefront issues of human need, desire, obligatory love, the constant stream of connection and dissociation – and the addictive nature of Tesco meal deals.
Join us for a journey of dissecting the human unconscious and the strings of our puppet master: the joys, the pain, the songs and the love that seed themselves deep beneath our common being.
Then, in a flashing movement, your foot is pricked by a bramble. A trickle of negligible blood flushes the grass red… You deny the pain. You keep running.
Spring 2018 dates
The first realisation of VOID debuted at the Royal Court Theatre in August 2017 as part of the Young Agitators “Void: The Big Idea” event, and was originally performed by Woolf. With literary support from Myah and Malakai throughout Autumn 2017, the piece has now evolved into an immersive three-hander with several scratch performances lined up for Spring 2018, with a full show lined up for January 2019.
