Bloom Theatre's new digital production - Avalanche - is currently available for online viewing until 7 February 2021.
Bloom Theatre co-founders, Simon Fraser and Jack Albert Cook, who wrote the play, explain how the project came about ...
"During the first lockdown, we produced a digital series that highlighted some of the best new writing and performers that we could have only imagined being staged in another life.
From that, we wanted to take this time and opportunity to tell a story that felt a lot closer to home.
A project that was something we could develop and nourish further.
Simon had an idea for a new play and after a few months of editing and re-writing as a company, Avalanche began its journey to a fuller, more rounded piece.
We couldn't be prouder of the outcome and cannot wait to share this story with the world.
This is a story that we know people need to be invited to witness.
Coming from such a personal perspective, we hope that by watching Avalanche, audiences can experience, first hand, stories from the weird and wonderful people of the world, that we ultimately want to continue to represent."
Here's the show trailer ..
Avalanche is directed by Alistair Wilkinson, Artists Director of WoLab, whose previous work includes Man-Cub (WoLab/RADA/Etcetera Theatre/King's Head), Housewerk (ArcolaTheatre) and 39 Degrees (VAULTS Festival).
Sonny Poon Tip, who plays 'Alex' in the production, said ...
"Working on Avalanche was a real honour.
To be trusted with such a beautiful and honest script felt very special to me and I'm grateful to Simon, Jack and Alistair for bringing me on board.
I'm really excited for people to see what we created, as a team, and hope that in telling this story we can shed light on an important topic and reach out a hand to anyone who might need it."
Show listing information
Alex has spent his life on the mountain.
Every day spent the same; body conditioning, endurance, lung expansion, balance,slalom ... skiing.
Always trying to cross the next finish line.
He was always in control.
Until he wasn't.
