Love and then Lighthouses
Sheena loves Pulp. She loves Jarvis Cocker. She loves the ocean, indie discos and the warm sun on her face. Sometimes she feels lost at sea – alone in the darkness.
Through imagined stories, fantasy gigs and handmade aesthetics, Sheena tells the tale of a little boat who is thrown off course by a storm. Filled with despair, the boat doesn’t know which way to turn and she faces her dark night of the soul.
A show full of disco lights, smoke machines and beacons in the darkness. A DIY guidebook for a teenage journey through the pitch black Yorkshire night.
Love and then Lighthouses was created as part of It’s All In Your Head at Greenwich & Lewisham Young People’s Theatre – a project exploring solo performance and themes of mental health. Drunken Chorus mentored 5 young artists to create their own work, which you can also see as part of TSOTF – check website for details.
Supported using public money from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and Keolis Amey Docklands. With additional support from Greenwich & Lewisham Young People’s Theatre, through their Progression programme. Developed from a scratch showing at Room Festival 2016 at Arts Depot.
