Named for the only song her parents wrote together, which opens and closes the performance, Miriam Gould’s Empty Room is a deeply personal one-woman show that explores her family history and the important part music has played – and continues to play – in that story.
Little Bulb, an award-winning company of actor-musicians which is based in the South East and tours nationwide, has revived their version of Orpheus, and the result is breathtaking.
If Orpheus was simply a re-telling of this myth, it would be over very quickly. Instead, music features heavily in the show – some of which are original compositions and some are well-known pieces of classical music.
Miriam Gould and Judita Vivas, also known as Double Trouble, tackle the theme of displacement as the creators and performers of Adventures in Black & White.
Miriam Gould is a theatre-maker, performer, musician and writer. This month her first solo show, Empty Room, comes to the Camden Fringe, drawing on Gould’s own experience and family history, and exploring the many ways in which music can help us survive.
