Hurtling

I have a message for you from the past.
Ok, it’s a message from this morning, so it may be the recent past. But it’s still the past.

This is an invitation to remember a previous version of yourself, to imagine a future version and to wonder who that makes you now.

Hurtling is an outdoor performance for one with a cassette player and headphones that is re-made for each location in which it’s performed. It’s a glimpse of a fleeting moment as it zooms past; an attempt to grasp at a slippery present.

“One of the best experiences I’ve had at this year’s fringe.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“The real deal…Work like this is the stuff that makes my breathing change and my mouth make strange, unexpected noises…f***ing brilliant.” – Megan Vaughan, Synonyms for Churlish

“The piece cleverly alters your perception of those around you.” – Thomas Bacon, Total Theatre

“Now living in a post-Hurtling world: the littlest lifechanger on the Fringe.” – Matt Trueman

“Hurtling was so beautiful and quietly transforming that I feel like I now need to go away and have a little cry.” – Catherine Love

Supported by Bristol Old Vic Ferment, The Yard and Hatch. A previous version of Hurtling was supported by Waleslab, National Theatre Wales’ artist development initiative.
