Review: DUST at Trafalgar Studios
By Monty Leigh Wednesday, September 26 2018, 08:34
A clinical metal table, mirrors, a girl in wrapped bandages - ‘Fuck, I think this is the end.’ Dust, written and performed by the excellent Milly Thomas, is a one woman show about a girl called Alice who takes her own life. We meet her at the moment she ‘wakes up’ in her lonely afterlife and sees the chaos and pain she has left behind.

Talawa Theatre - the UK’s primary Black led touring theatre company - ’calls the ravers in’ with its latest performance Run it Back. It is introduced with an astounding spoken word piece by the formidable Jasmine L Jones - she speaks about her love of a woman called poetry as she intricately interweaves what we know to be classical poetry with hip hop classics spanning decades. The woman she loves cannot be defined by rules, she is everything from John Donne to Kurtis Blow.

Hot Air Baboon productions presents the ‘baddest babe in the spirit world’ - Séayoncé a twisted and sassy show following the journeys of a confused and severely intoxicated mystic whose gender is entirely up for discussion. Séayoncé is a one-person comedy show performed by Daniel Wye, a charismatic and quick-witted performer with a real impeccable sense of comedic timing.
