Holding Mercury

A surgical theatre, a kick-ass drum kit and a drummer. 

A woman enters.

Holding Mercury is about the Brain, a Woman, and the question of Change.  An experimental fusion of science, spoken word, explosive drumming and drama, the piece stands upon cutting edge research in neuroscience and in particular the concept of brain plasticity. The central character is a woman who has lost trust in her capacity for love or to love.
