‘I am trying to find my edges, I don’t know where they are anymore…
Am I grieving now? Am I grieving, now? Am I grieving? Now?’
‘Holding It Together’ is an original multidisciplinary performance exploring grief; it is a both performance and a conversation, shared in an intimate space that has been crafted to support audience members as they reflect, either aloud or internally, upon the feeling and evolving experience of grief.
The work combines movement, text and a strong visual aesthetic, that uses the familiar, playful and light materiality of bubble wrap, to communicate two independent but shared experiences of grief and the friendship that connects them.
Devised and performed by Chloë Smith (choreographer) and Jassy Earl (visual artist), the work will mark the beginning of collaborative relationships with an experienced creative team who all value the power of holding space as part of their practice: including Luke Pell (dramaturg); Kim Moore (composer); Laura Bradshaw (movement director) and Emma Jayne Park (producer).
