About This Show

Whole is a solo show about two people. One of them is on stage, the other isn’t. In some parts of the world people believe that twins share a soul, so how can you be a twin alone? Using autobiographical story-telling, immersive soundscapes, song and striking visual imagery, Whole is an exploration of complex grief, identity and belief systems; a raw, tender, messy love story, a wound splashed in whiskey and haunted by ghosts. Beautifully honest and tender, this is a wander through the shadows of a bluebell wood at dusk, a map of a life written across two bodies, a deep dive into what it means to lose the person who makes us Whole. Made in collaboration with award-winning theatre-maker Jamie Wood.

Part of Arcola’s festival of outdoor art and performance, Today I’m Wiser
