Written by Laura Lindow in collaboration with Chilli Studios, a Mental Health charity based in Byker. Celebrating the creative process, this piece is a culmination of the sparks, ideas and works from community workshops and individuals involved. This vibrant, lyrical tale celebrates those who find the beauty in the breakage.
Performed by Chilli Studio members alongside Paula Penman, Zoe Lambert and Ziad Jabero, and directed by Steve Byron.
“Somewhere. Somewhere between the darling arches and the grey motorway, high up amongst the roofs, nestles a place. A food place. A food and drink place. A food and drink and ‘how you doing?’ place. Where on this particular rain-soaked Newcastle day a quizzical few find their way. To discover their losses, to query their misgivings, to loosen their shadows, to dance if it takes them, and to share their buttery toast.
Broccoli-Beaks the bird beats time, and the tender stones of the building whistle and whine as the very bones of this place sing along in harmony, smashing life’s smog to smithereens. Because where there’s tea… there is hope.”
