Thinking it and Fainting
Monday 29th April 7.30pm
At The Nuffield Theatre, Southampton

Work in progress performance of Grist to the Mill’s new solo show and after-show discussion.

Everyday tasks – cooking, cleaning and laundry, take on epic proportions as puppeteer Isobel Smith struggles to ritualize and subvert their readings – liberating them from their hum-drum existence in the spirit of ‘El duende’ and evoking something powerful and extraordinary in the process.

Thinking it and Fainting was developed during Grist to the Mill’s residency at The Nuffield Theatre.
