You Aren’t Doing It Wrong If No One Knows What You Are Doing

Tue 4 Feb 2020

An interactive solo performance about failure, feeling like an idiot and music.

Rachel comes from a family of brilliant achievers, they make music.....but she can barely pull off chopsticks on the xylophone... Join her as she dives headlong into the car crash of perfectionism, imposter syndrome and feeling professionally ridiculous. Part confessional, part invocation, but mostly a funny and compelling celebration of our right to fail.

Rachel is supported by a creative team who are, quite frankly, more successful and brilliant than she is: Icelandic songstress Emiliana Torrini (special guest and musical adviser); Toby Park, Spymonkey (director); Martin Noble, British Sea Power (sound designer) and fine art photographer Hugh Fox. Together we see if it is possible to find creative capacity in the face of depressing news and terrible odds.
