About this show

A Midsummer Night's Dream meets Serge Gainsbourg's Histoire de Melody Nelson in this mesmerising reflection on what it means to begin. The Beginning takes place between a rehearsal and a performance, dreaming and being awake, and asks how we might begin a career, a relationship or a life. Because he has promised never to perform again, award winning live artist Michael Pinchbeck, has invited Nicki Hobday and Ollie Smith to join him in remembering how it feels to perform for the first time.

Running time: approx 55mins. A performance by Michael Pinchbeck devised with Nicki Hobday and Ollie Smith.
