After its inaugural NI Tour, my brain takes a rest

Reassembled, Slightly Askew had a tremendously successful inaugural tour around NI from late April through early June, at the Metropolitan Arts Centre (as part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival), Derry Playhouse, Flowerfield Arts Centre (as part of Action on Brain Injury Week), The Burnavon, Down Arts Centre and Island Arts Centre.

Audiences have called it:

“One of the most amazing, moving theatrical experiences of my life.”

“An amazing piece of theatre. An amazing use of sound. Very emotional piece. Very brave piece of writing.”

“Without question, one of the most vital and emotionally engaging theatre pieces I’ve ever experienced. I’m walking away informed, questioning, invigorated and ultimately grateful.”

“I think the piece should be widely toured and publicized and used for training purposes. As someone who has been through a lot of hospital treatments myself, I think this resonates across the board for any medical staff in contact with patients. It is indeed also a story of hope—and of love. “

“…very moving, terrifying, humourous and will stay with me for a very long time. The best piece of ‘theatre’ I have EVER experienced.”

“It was one of the most participative theatre pieces I have ever been involved in.”

“Shows an entirely different aspect to theatre.”

After a much-needed break for the summer, it will be returning to Belfast as part of the Arts & Disability Forum’s BOUNCE festival, 3-6 Sept at the Lyric Theatre.
