      EVENT DETAILS
      Empty Room

      Presented by Miriam Gould Empty Room is about a family held together by music. Onstage a jazz singer talks about her daughter and sings about her lover. Backstage a sax player rants about art and addiction and coping with fatherhood in between. And in a classroom, an idealistic teenager (over)shares her passion for Dmitri Shostakovich and the importance of music in times of trouble. In different places and times, they speak about truth, art, love and trauma. The first solo show from musician and theatre-maker Miriam Gould (Associate Artist of Little Bulb Theatre), Empty Room uses live song, intertwined monologues and a violin concerto to explore how music can free us; revealing hidden depths in order to survive in times when we need it most. After the show audiences are welcome to share their own song to add to the Survival Playlist which is being compiled from submissions around the world. Music - Rachel Gould, Sal Nistico, Dmitri Shostakovich and Miriam Gould Dramaturgy - Alex Scott Design - Verity Sadler Developed at Battersea Arts Centre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. This show contains strong language and upsetting subject matter which some may be triggering with references to depression, heroin addiction and death. Age restriction: 14+
