When were you last angry?

With Force and Noise is Hannah’s first attempt at articulating anger.
Made in collaboration with costume designer Annelies Henny, this one-woman monologue is a woven text and bespoke costume. Created whilst in discussion with researchers in international politics and emotional study, With Force and Noise takes inspiration from punk, protest and psychology.
Supported by Bristol Ferment, ICIA Bath, The Solo Contemporary Performance Forum, Shoreditch Town Hall and Arts Council England.

Through research with academic professionals performance artist Hannah Sullivan has come to understand the emotion as a combination of biological motivation, imagined impossibilities and a socially complexentity. Anger  is wrapped up with our perceptions of madness and often dismissed. With Force and Noise is an attempt at an honest articulation of anger through a personal and artistic monologue. The process for this wor k has been an experiment in performance and costume, investigating how the performers movement can be affected by costume and vice versa. The collaborating performance artist and costume designer share an interest in creating an equality between the performer and costume, so that the work is negated between the performers body and material sculpture of costume.

Part of Sprint Festival 2016: London’s biggest and best festival of the newest, most adventurous theatre from across the UK and beyond.

Catch With Force & Noise in a double bill with The Conversation BoxElsa on the same evening. Two shows for just £16!
