There are the best of days…
There are the worst of days…
And then there are Days Like These…
‘Days Like These’ invites you to revisit and reflect on the best and worst days of your life. Drawing on the idea that our universal differences make us also the same, a creative team of very different people bravely peel back their layers and share their stories of joy, loss, frustration and change.
The show examines emotional thresholds and attempts to hold a mirror up for all to ask of yourself…
What kind of day is today?
THEATRE | MULTI-ARTFORM
Days Like These, explores the varied ways we, as humans, express our emotions. The work both expands and compresses the universal nature of difference by taking everyday human experiences and placing them in a theatrical context. Stylistically, the work reflects the nonsensicality of Louis Carroll and Caryl Churchill. The work is made up 4 artists in 13 fractured scenes that are presented as a smorgasbord of short emotive stories. The stage is painted with images and infra-red bodies, and the score is haunting and infectious. The overall filmic design of the show makes it both bite-size and full length.
