Overview

Along cycle paths, alleyways and canals of London comes a story that maps a journey from a seaside town, to the tenements of city life as a 20-something.

Writer and performer Cecilia Knapp’s debut piece is about growing up, about a childhood in make-shift dens, about drinking wine, love and one night stands. But it’s mainly about losing her brother Leo to suicide and how that affects a person.

Cecilia shines a light on how we deal with loss, how we talk about mental health, and explores what it is like to grow up amongst these things. We meet the characters that have influenced her, listen to her old cassettes, hear her story and discover how she found home amongst chaos.

Directed by Stef O’Driscoll (Kate Tempest’s Hopelessly Devoted, With A Little Bit Of Luck) Finding Home is an evocative collaboration of words, projections, vocals and instrumentals. With classical and contemporary, and music from world champ beatboxer Bellatrix and Tongue Fu founder Chris Redmond.

Celebrating International Women's Day

To mark International Women’s Day on March 8, and to celebrate some of the inspiring, creative women working across the arts, we’ve put together a mini-festival of performance and events by women.

Crossing music, theatre, spoken word, talks and comedy, we’ll be presenting some rising talents, free events in the foyer and workshops to take part in.
