Volatile was about communication: how we struggle and strive to look for the elusive meaning behind the words we use to communicate – so often missed or misunderstood. Five characters pieced together what they could from the bombardment of the every day.

Volatile was performed on an intriguing 2 storey set designed by Simon Dormon to a score of new and found music by Sophy Smith.

Volatile was produced in conjunction with Newbury Corn Exchange, South Hill Park, Bracknell and Swindon Dance

Premiered October 2002, UK

In this production I attempted to make something like a poem. The intention was to capture something of the mystery and struggle involved in trying to actually communicate truthfully to someone else
