Kandinsky Theatre (2018)
★★★★ ‘intricately-layered, exquisitely detailed … . It’s deeply sophisticated, sensitive stuff, with a strong Charlie Kaufman flavour and an aftertaste of Tim Crouch.’ Time Out
As common on neurology wards as MS, Functional Neurological Disorder looks and feels like a problem with the workings of the brain. Sufferers can experience tremors, seizures, blindness, paralysis – all with no physical cause.
With three actors and live music, Still Ill looks at the search for meaning that follows a difficult diagnosis – and how it feels to be told there’s nothing physically wrong with you when your brain is telling you you’re sick.
I performed the live music score on stage in this year’s run at New Diarama Theatre on synths, drumkit and vocals.
