Made In Scotland showcase and Winner of Total Theatre Award In Association with The Place, Edinburgh Fringe 2018

VOID reimagines JG Ballard’s cult novel Concrete Island through the lens of a black female protagonist – staged as a meshing of experimental dance and abstract glitch video landscapes. Blending typically Ballardian themes of liminal spaces and urban paranoia with contemporary theories from radical identity studies, Mele Broomes performs risk taking choreography to the backdrop of an industrial soundscape

Reviews

“No prior knowledge of the book is necessary, however: this Tramway commission is structured, delivered and directed (by Bex Anson) with such pummeling force that its narrative of survival in a brutalising, arid environment is viscerally clear”
Mary Brennan The Herald 4*

VOID is deftly directed, its aural and visual components pushed right up against each other, almost fit to burst. The Skinny 4*
