No words - Physical theatre, mime, sound, illusion and a live score

Blind Man's Song
Blind Man's Song is a new theatre piece from Theatre Re which runs at the Pleasance Theatre from 27 April to 15 May 2016 before going on tour. The work is a wordless piece which uses physical theatre, mime, sound, illusion and a live score to tell a tale about a blind man's rage against his world of darkness. The score by Alex Judd combines amplified on-stage noises, fed through a loop-pedal and combined with violin and keyboard with music inspired by figures as diverse as Ravel, Stravinsky, John Adams and Philip Glass. The piece was conceived and directed by Guillaume Pigé and will be performed by Pigé, Alex Judd and Sarah Roth.

BLind Man's Song debuted last year at the 2015 London International Mime Festival, and this year after the run at the Pleasance Theatre in London the work will be touring to Hereford, Oxford, Chippenham, Liverpool, as well as travelling to the Ruhrfestspiele, Recklinghausen (Germany) and L'Odyssée Scène Conventionée (France). Full tour information from the Theatre Re website.
