Chosen Family

Chosen Family is an extended poetic dialogue that acts as a companion piece to She Stole My Every Rock and Roll. 

Chosen Family launched at the Anywhere Theatre Festival in 2013, with reviewer Nerissa Rowan, saying:

As audience members, we get what we crave. These two confident performers create a connection with their audience through their words and eye contact. In spoken word, there is no movement, no sets, no incidental music to fall back on. And yet the pictures they paint are almost as vivid as having it acted out in front of you.

These poems segue into a patchwork quilt of scenes, stitched with repetitive threads. It doesn’t seem like an hour has gone by when the show ends.

With inimitable graphic/filmic/production support from Thomas Day.
