The Old Library - 10 Lower Bore Street, Bodmin, UK
Riot of the Freelance Mind does The Hinterland is a tragi-comic exploration of living and juggling creative lives alongside everyday ‘real life’ pressures.
What it means to be a performer/actor/creative/writer in today’s world? How do we live? How do we survive between jobs? A look at the tensions of auditioning, interviews, workshops and also at competitiveness, age, self-esteem and how we find our ‘voice’. In a series of overlapping and interlinking monologues we deconstruct our pasts, present and future to define or re-define who we are. All this is sprinkled with an eclectic mix of dialogue, poetry, music, projections and voice over, combined with a bit of the quirky, the honest and the irreverent.
This show contains adult language and is recommended for ages 14+.
