WHAT PEOPLE SAY
It’s her abilities as a performer that really convince. Already given a glimpse of her vision through the ever-changing graphics projected onto three walls of the theatre, Seb also makes full use of the space to use dance as another entry point into her message. Seeing the colours and shapes gives her story a physical presence; they accompany a set of songs that take inspiration from myriad genres, from the disco-inspired drive of Feel The Music to the RnB vibes of Ice Cream. You sense that Seb has let the narrative lead the way, making decisions based on what the lyrics require to best convey the story. Her gorgeous voice, sweet and emphatic, brings it together.

2018 R&D Sharing:
Facilitated by Blue Saint

Through use of storytelling and spoken word poetry the workshop will explore the concept of purpose and life. What do people live for? What does it mean to live? Why is having a voice important? And how can one use their voice to enact change?
You will examine these questions and concepts as a way to create thoughtful art, feel empowered and stimulate great conversation.
