There is nothing like a solo performance which one experiences in the theatre. The immediacy of hearing a personal narrative in the intimacy of a small space is stunning. The ability of a single artist to captivate and hold an audience is one of the great performing traditions.
The Faculty of Performing Arts has assembled an extraordinary group of writers and performers with stories that open hearts, stimulate minds and lift spirits. These artists inhabit their work with directness and honesty, stripping down the act of theatre-making to its bare essence.
SOLO celebrates their skills, with performances including spoken word, theatre, song, intimate performance and dance – through a variety of one-person shows. SOLO explores and celebrates the uniqueness of the individual.
The School of Dance & Theatre produces SOLO as an annual event to give young performers graduating from BA(Hons) Acting and BA(Hons) Musical Theatre programmes (and alumni) the opportunity to workshop their ideas for solo performances, reach out to industry and receive early career attention and audience feedback.
This year the performers have all submitted works that deal with the themes of My World, My Body, My Home.
