I Walk In Your Words

6pm, Sat 24 November

£10 / £8 (Concessions: Students, Unwaged, Under 21)

Authentic, funny yet poignant, I Walk in Your Words features a collection of personal stories, performed ‘headphone verbatim’ by Tamasha Developing Artists.  

After a week of training by former Artistic Director of Tamasha, Kristine Landon-Smith, actors will perform the thoughtful, touching and often laugh-out-loud words they hear through headphones of the taped and edited interviews each actor has conducted with local Streatham residents during the previous week.

This unique technique gives theatre artists the tools to respond rapidly to the issues of the day providing immediate, nimble and authentic pieces, touching on both the political and personal experience. The result will be a series of unpredictable, tender, funny and honest testimonies that will have you at the edge of your seat.

Last February's scratch was a joyful success. So join us in the latest I Walk in Your Words series with Kristine and her creative team, including for a post-show Q&A on making a show in a week!

Co-curated by Kristine Landon-Smith and Neela Dolezavola
