SMITH dancetheatre (2015)
After The Fall: A Little Morality Play
Dance/song/storytelling intergenerational theatre inspired by a book called The Devil’s Mischief, directed by Neil Paris.
In 2015 I was working as a dancer-vocalist with SMITH dance theatre to perform ‘After The Fall: A Little Morality Play’… It was a play about the Devil. Using a pink church hall as our rehearsal studio, it seemed apt to be falling about, playing games with dice, singing about the Lord and testing the other dancers on how well they can sing a top A. Then there was the wooden cage with the mic that Neil’s dad built. It made a beautiful and wobbly climbing frame, doubling up also as a confession room. Performed at Norwich Playhouse by Jan Lee, Sarah Lewis, Sally Marie and a cast of local performers from Norwich.
