Electrolyte is a multi award-winning piece of gig theatre that powerfully explores mental health for a contemporary audience.
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.
Written in spoken word poetry and underscored by original music ranging from “blasts of sound to lyrical sweetness”, this “unstoppable” production is performed by six multi-instrumentalists who seamlessly integrate live music with expert storytelling.
Electrolyte is the winner of the Mental Health Fringe Award, The Stepladder Award, The LET Award, The Voice Mag Pick of The Fringe Award and the Pleasance Best Newcomer Award 2018.
