A solo physical theatre piece about a box-headed character called Shu.
Hi there! Our new theatre company, Arte Visuale, is putting on a show called ‘Shu’ as part of the 2014 Fringe Festival. It is a solo piece of physical theatre about a quirky little box-headed character called Shu. The piece has no speech, instead utilising movement, sound, and lighting to tell the story. The piece is written and performed by Laura Gaudin, with stage management and lighting design by Stevie Hancox-Monk. Our company name, Arte Visuale, is an anagram of our first names – Laura and Stevie.
Throughout the piece, you will get to witness and
experience things such as a typewriter, disco music, and
even vacuuming! The piece is inspired by a love for the
little moments in one’s day, which often go unnoticed or
unappreciated. The show depicts ordinary, everyday events in
ways which are exciting and a little bit magical.
Shu is a family friendly show, involving clowning and unusual soundscapes. Shu is for anyone who enjoys coffee, fun, and dancing. It is also for everyone else.
