    About

    PART OF INCOMING FESTIVAL 2019

    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.

    Wildcard is an Associate Company of The Watermill Theatre and was created in the summer of 2015 with a dual purpose: to revitalise theatre and become a home for emerging artists. This is the backbone of the company’s approach to programming.
