British Council is delighted to partner with axis arts centre to bring the sell-out, smash hit of the Edinburgh Fringe to Ballymun. Electrolyte is a multi-award winning piece of gig theatre that powerfully explores mental health for a contemporary audience. Written in spoken word poetry and underscored by original music ranging from ‘blasts of sound to lyrical sweetness’, this ‘unstoppable’ production is performed by six multi-instrumentalists who seamlessly integrate live music with expert storytelling. Check out the 50 second trailer here.
Follow Jessie through gigs, parties, city streets and warehouses, as she journeys from Leeds to London, on a quest to find her mother. As part of the production, we hope to run workshops & discussions aimed at promoting a community response to combating mental health problems through the arts.
Electrolyte is the winner of the Mental Health Fringe Award, The Stepladder Award, The LET Award, The Voice Mag Pick of The Fringe Award and the Pleasance Best Newcomer Award 2018. ***** The Scotsman, Broadway Baby, VoiceMag, Ed Fest Mag.
