This Restless State, co-commissioned by Fuel and Ovalhouse, leads audiences on a journey across our continent’s past, present and future in a story of family, national identity, conflict and love. This premiere production, directed by Jemima James, runs at London’s Ovalhouse from 14 to 24 March 2018, before touring until 20 April.
Intimate storytelling and innovative sound design combine in This Restless State, a new collaboration between writer Danielle Pearson and performer Jesse Fox, which is directed by Jemima James. Weaving together three stories from across Europe at different times – in 1989 around the fall of the Berlin Wall, in London in 2017, and in Rome in 2052 – each considers the personal and political choices we make and the fact that our beliefs and our personal feelings don’t always match up.
The production is funded by Arts Council England and the Leche Trust, with development supported by Engineer Theatre Collective. Following Ovalhouse, it visits Arena Theatre, Wolverhampton (7 April), Exeter Phoenix Theatre (11-12 April) and Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle (17-20 April).
This Restless State runs 14 to 24 March 2018 at London’s Ovalhouse, 52-54 Kennington Oval, London SE11 5SW, with performances at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £9, £10 and £15, with discounted tickets for local residents at £7.50. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
