Flash intends to entertain and ‘rock’ with high energy, gig theatre, a feel good factor, a mini drum kit and music. Underneath lies an autobiographical story of one man’s mental health, though more as inspiration for the events you see. This includes the occasional glimpse of an obsession for the music and members of the band Queen.
Flash started development via the Volcano Theatre Yr Odyn Artist Award. This allows an artist some time, budget and rehearsal space to develop a new work. My proposal was to explore devising with new methods, to perform and collaborate in areas that for me would be new territory.
Created with fringe venues in mind, Flash had its first performance at Volcano’s Novemberfest 2016. It has since continued to evolve; therefore its performance at CFTF 2017 will be a new development of this work.
