Pale Phoebe – what to expect

10 second taster from Joe White and Tanya Stephenson

Can you give us a teaser of what you'll be presenting as part of the Starting Blocks showcase on 30 March?

Take a look at our promo trailer here.

How have you been developing the show over the past weeks?

We have been working over the past weeks to develop an intricate and interdependent dialogue between onstage lighting, live music and text in order to retell the story of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon from our own perspectives. Some themes we have become particularly interested include wonder, ambition and the desire to escape.


In 5 words, what can the audience expect to look forward to in your performance?

(Live) music. Lights. Cables. Escape. (The) Moon.


In 5 words, how would you describe your style of performance?

Exposing. Industrious. Fragile. Lyrical. Poetic.
