In a blend of physical theatre and contemporary dance, four women explore the effects of loneliness on emotional wellbeing and literature's constant re-interpretations of madness. Infused with the voices of mental health service users through verbatim, the poetry of Virginia Woolf and the lives of other 'tragic poets', Six Lips presents an honest and colourful journey into the human mind. Experimental electronic music backdrops a union of movement, poetry, prose, testimony and projection.
Lovingly and sensitively created, House of Tragic She has been infused by the voices of mental health service users, providers and professionals. Cue a juxtaposition of the surreal extension of life allowed by the human mind with the serious tragedies of its realities.
Six Lips Theatre is an independent all-female theatre company founded in 2010 by Anna Rose James, Hannah Wallace and Roxanna Klimaszewska to create theatre which is evocative, resonant, playful and lasting. The company's works are thoughtful and concept-driven, with a strong focus on ensemble-driven process, collaboration and documentation. Due to this ethos, the company now includes Matt Harper and Stacey Johnstone. Six Lips Theatre also invite associate artists to work with them throughout their creative processes.
Specialising in a modern, experimental form of Brechtian epic theatre, Six Lips Theatre produce immersive pieces that implicate the audience in the bespoke environment of each production. Both process and performance have empathy and honesty at the heart; initiating discussion between performers in process, and between storyteller and audience in performance. Expect hand-crafted aesthetics and poetic, poignant wordcraft, stimulating and lasting vignettes; all exposed to question and response.
