Debs Newbold ‘Lost in Blue’
Pau has been taking rehearsal shoots of the forthcoming production ‘Lost in Blue’ by Debs Newbold.
When she was three years old, Annie’s life was unexpectedly skewed. On her 18th birthday, it threatens to happen again.
What is it like to be in a coma? What would you do faced with the responsibility of withdrawing someone’s life support? What would Van Gogh say about it if you hung out with him in his room at Arles? And what does a pigeon called Muhammad Ali eat for breakfast?
Funded by Arts Council England, ‘Lost in Blue’ is a funny, uplifting, poignant and at times, downright bizarre one woman show. This is verbal cinema; innovative storytelling fuelled by sound technology.
Written & performed by Debs Newbold:
Debs Newbold is a performer, storyteller and writer who effortlessly brings together and emotively explores the ancient and the urban, the poetic and the irreverent, the epic and the everyday. Debs has fast become one of the UK’s most acclaimed Performance Storytellers, enthralling audiences at The Royal Opera House, the British Library, the Southbank Centre, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and BBC Radio, as well as many prestigious festivals both here and abroad. Twice voted one of the top five acts at the Towersey Festival (the only Spoken Word Artist in its fifty year history ever to achieve this), Debs is “a whirlwind…flying the flag for storytelling.” (fRoots).
