next show: Kneehigh Asylum. Sat 21st September. 7pm
One day Seamus found an old cassette tape in the back of his car with recordings of himself as a 4 year old boy, telling stories and singing his heart out. Seamas has worked with director Agnieszka Blonska and choir leader Vicky Abbot to turn the recordings into 60 minutes of recomposed songs, performed by a choir of 30. Seamus also plays piano, talks about growing up and occasionally dances.
My 4 year old self’ is a work of unique wonder. Fuelled by the domestic, it accelerates into the epic, careering into unexpected and thrilling turns… I came out feeling like I was part of the world; connected, moved and hopeful. I loved it!
Emma Rice, Artistic Director, Wise Children
