'Wilson generates and performs her intricately controlled soundscape... with a cut-glass precision that turns her voice into another instrument' The Herald ****
Melanie Wilson’s new solo show is a bold hybrid of performance, sound art and film, which together create a minutely observed piece of theatre.
Three women, separated by 100 years, start a conversation across time. Their parallel experiences reveal shared dreams of identity and escape, as menacing undercurrents steal into their solitary and reflective lives. As the landscape of the North Devon wilds presses in on them, they must draw upon the threads that connect them to survive.
Nominated for Best Design at the Dublin Fringe Festival 2013
