Roll up roll up! Experience the history of radio retold by a crack team of female idiots in this genre bending explosion of ideas, stories and inappropriate sound FX! Using live foley, a host of household objects transformed into weapons of sound and a highly questionable grasp of so called “facts”, join these clowns as they attempt to disentangle myth from legend in an all singing all dancing deep dive into the creation of the original tech revolution.
Like that film about Zuckerberg but less creepy and with more jokes, [RADIOPHONICS] is an international collaboration between some of the most brilliant/stupid idiosyncratic female performers/sound artists and writers working today.
I work backstage theatre in Norway, Spain & UK. When I am not on tour living out of my blue little suitcase, I try to write and I try to build lamps with scraps of wood & metal.
Anna Iau is my mate from school; she makes weird Sound Art stuff and she's a lot funnier than me onstage. She's Spanish, I'm only half Spanish.
Ed Gaughan is a real cool one; funny onstage & offstage, he makes everything seem really easy. He's some sort of English/Irish bat.
Peter Smith the guy who says 'yes' to everything. Fully Brit.
Elicia Daly & Chloe Young are fully Brits too (I think!). Shea Wojtus is Canadian. These three womens are real funny beasts; I met them last year and they made me really happy. So now we are all making [RADIOPHONICS] together.
Press & Reviews
"It is so contemporary, yet so retro, yet incredibly absurd!"
-Elvira Navas, Freelance Producer & Dancer (Spain)
"The combination of sound being made visual, the very interesting story of radio and the performers' precise sense of humour, makes [RADIOPHONICS] a show with great appeal"
-Franzisca Aarflot, Artistic Director at Fossekleiva Kultursenter (Norway)
"Such a kick-arse project using radio as a medium. Such rich, complex, nuanaced work. We chatted about it all the way through dinner and until 3am."
-Pablo Pakula, Lecturer at University of Birmingham and Performance Artist (UK)
