Home Solo, ENSEMBLE
“Particularly at this moment in our social history, we need artists of this calibre making work as engaging and insightful as this.”
Pasco-Q Kelvin, Director of the Norwich Arts Centre
ENSEMBLE bring Home Solo to Brighton Fringe, sparking from a sell out premiere.
A show for anyone who has ever wanted to get home.
Home Solo weaves spoken word, dance, song, beautiful percussion and guitar unravelling in an intimate journey into your own skin. Expressing grace, unveiling quirks and uniting us in the pursuit of ourselves. The work is devised and performed by Hayley Matthews, contemporary dancer and choreographer and Hej Jones, composer and multi-instrumentalist.
“The show also feels to me like a re-imagining of boundaries, which feels poignant now, in the context of today’s politically charged debates on our borders and boundaries in the UK. For me, the re-imagining, the way through the turmoil, has to start with the individual. We have to learn to sit with ourselves, the suffering, the hurt, the anger, the beauty and to develop good boundaries and to be comfortable in our own skin (our own border line), before we can even think of beginning to relate to others, and our political border lines. To do this we need to develop independence, interdependence, resilience and be ok with utter vulnerability, with only our skin, no fort, no wall, no political boundary to protect us.”

How to Survive the Future, Tess Letham
Tess takes a journey through a collection of funny, tragic, and beautiful scenes derived from deep personal experiences. A powerful tale of human fragility and an anxious search for identity when faced with the vast uncertainties of life; the wavering complexities of love and grave concern for what the future holds
