Thirsty: The Paper Birds Theatre Company
Mixing live music, verbatim text and physical theatre with their trademark honest, direct and humorous approach, The Paper Birds explore our nation's love affair with alcohol, weaving together hundreds of real life (often hazy) memories and booze based confessions gathered over a series of interviews, performed as one epic night out on the town.
Jemma McDonnell and Kylie Walsh will play all the characters they interviewed, from kids drinking in the park to old men in working men's clubs.
Why, as a nation, are we so thirsty? From the bizarre stag night excess to untold stories of sexual abuse, and even accidental deaths, Paper Birds look beyond the statistics of Binge Drinking Britain, into the traumas, bruised knees, sore heads and urine stained beds...
The Paper Birds are Jemma McDonnell (Artistic Director), Elle Moreton (Creative Producer) and Kylie Walsh (Outreach Director). They strive to create and share devised work that is culturally, socially and politically observational. Their productions emerge from a female perspective and often this female voice will prioritise stories of women. The company's work will often shift and reinvent itself to address and evoke discussion, thought and emotion when and where it is most needed whilst retaining the company's signature visual and physical approach. Forging relationships and initiating new partnerships and collaborations, The Paper Birds use a dynamic performance vocabulary that speaks to its audience visually, physically, and musically.
