Ghost Track

An old man sits at the end of his life. An old man sits at the end of his life contemplating his possessions, his fortunes and the sound files on his nano pad...

A solo performance by Claire Hind

Written in collaboration with Gary Winters
Co-directed with Alexander Kelly

Claire Hind has collaborated with writers and directors Gary Winters of Lone Twin and Alexander Kelly of Third Angel to create a solo performance about her many ‘dads’, the complexities of the psyche and her left vocal chord. The performance plays out through 3 microphones whilst revealing sound compositions triggered by a nano pad and re-frames act one scene one of King Lear through an autobiographical lens. The work prompts stand up actions about anxiety whilst referencing slips and trips to the Freud Museum.

Nothing. Nothing will become of nothing. Coo, coo, coo, says the dove...

Running time approximately 55 minutes.
Sound and technical Richard Wade.
