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.
Ghost Track re-frames act one scene one of King Lear through an autobiographical lens. It is a solo performance about Claire's many âdads', 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. The work prompts stand up actions about anxiety whilst referencing slips and trips to the Freud Museum.
Nothing.Nothing will come of nothing. Coo, coo, coo, says the dove...
Co-directed with Alexander Kelly and sound by Richard Wade.
