‘A SPOONFUL OF SILENCE’ – Brighton Fringe Festival

Brighton Visitor
  • On May 20, 2011

Mandana grows letters in her field. The availability of letters, which enables her to talk, depends on the season and the harvest. She crafts her sentences delicately as she tells you her story, allowing you to enjoy the silence between the words. She is waiting for you by the stove in her cosy kitchen, sprinkling rose petals in a freshly made pot of tea. Hold a warm cup of tea in your hand and embark on a journey to the present moment. A delicious and raw performance questionning our use of words. This show can be enjoyed as part of a healthy diet!

“This show has a Zen – like emphasis on taking your time and not doing a million things at once”. The Irish Times***

“Challenging the social stigma of the awkward silence and reminding us that language is a gift. The experience was absolutely delicious”. ThreeWeeks*****

“It does win you over” RTE Radio One.

Nightingale theatre’s upstairs kitchen, 29 – 30 Surrey Street, Brighton
