Winner, Mental Health Fringe Award 2018
‘We are a blip. A speck of dust.
To be wiped off the face of time
like you might a bike chain's rust.
But to each of us,
we are everything'
Follow Jessie through gigs, parties, city streets and warehouses, journeying from Leeds to London, on a quest to find her mother.
Electrolyte is a multi-award winning piece of gig theatre that powerfully explores mental health for a contemporary audience. Written in spoken word poetry and underscored by original music ranging from “blasts of sound to lyrical sweetness” (★★★★★ The Scotsman), this exhilarating and powerful show is performed by six multi-instrumentalists who seamlessly integrate live music with expert storytelling.
Electrolyte won the 2018 Mental Health Fringe Award, a prize founded by the Mental Health Foundation in recognition of the most outstanding show exploring mental health at the Edinburgh Fringe. It also won The Stepladder Award, The LET Award, The Voice Mag Pick of The Fringe Award and the Pleasance Best Newcomer Award 2018.
We are delighted to welcome Electrolyte back to Scotland for a week of dates as part of a two-month tour of the UK and Ireland, also supported by the Mental Health Foundation.
Electrolyte’s dates at the Tron Theatre are presented in association with Mayfesto.
There will be post-show discussions on Tuesday 14 May and Wednesday 15 May.
