• What are you finding interesting in the Beautiful Chaos 2.0 project so far?

It’s been great to be in the room and get to know the ins and outs of Beautiful Chaos. Thabo and Pirita bring a balance of spoken word and dance to the performance and it’s been lovely to see it develop and unfold in the rehearsal room. I’ve found myself on a journey when watching Beautiful chaos, inspired by Thabo’s words, Pirita’s movement and their connection that strengthens throughout the piece.

• What are you finding interesting in the Beautiful Chaos 2.0 project so far?
I have found the process of fusing the many distinctive elements of this project particularly interesting. In order to create the sound and music to accompany a story told from different perspectives I have utilised audio gathered from diverse locations including the west coast of Scotland, Sri Lanka and London. This combined with the assortment of artforms; movement, dance, spoken word, beatboxing and video imagery has been a particularly engaging process.

• What are you finding interesting in the Beautiful Chaos 2.0 project so far?
"I’m finding really interesting to find the balance between providing access (mostly related to the spoken word bits in the performance) and stepping away when the rhythms and the physicality are so clear and visual that you don’t need any interpretation."
