Summary

Algedonic is an aesthetic outlook on pain and pleasure. Complex emotions simplified into poetic interludes as only r.h. Sin can express. With his trademark of giving simplicity to some of the hardest of emotions, Sin reminds us all that there are often two sides to an emotional story and sometimes the pain transforms into something beautiful, something less problematic and maybe something that reignites a feeling of pleasure.

    Shakespeare's immortal play Hamlet needs little introduction, but in short: A Danish prince learns from his father (now a ghost) that he was murdered by his own brother Claudius, who married the prince's mother and took the throne. Full of angst and doubt, Hamlet spends the rest of the play wracked with indecision: to kill or not to kill Claudius, that is... one of the nagging questions. But all the uncertainty at hand is the best part - Is Hamlet really crazy or is he just putting on a show? Is the ghost really his dad or is Hamlet truly nuts?  It is its layers of potential meaning that make Shakespeare's play so monumental. There is the standard reading that says Hamlet lags in action because he's in fact torn with guilt; then there's the alternative reading that says he hated his father and loved his mother a little too much, thus his inaction is based on some Oedipal complex.

    Combining a lyrical text, immersive staging and an enigmatic and compelling performance style, Autobiographer draws us into the unravelling mind of its central character, Flora. Voiced by multiple performers, Flora reveals a curious and evocative portrait of a life refracted through the lens of dementia, layered from fragments of stories and pulses of memory. This tender, poetic and thrilling performance features a cast of four and a bold and electrifying score of voice and sound.'Autobiographer successfully presents us with one reality of dementia and our attitudes to it… deeply poetical' – Exeunt Magazine 'Wilson uses an unobtrusive vocabulary to say something quietly surprising. It is the beauty of telling stories, even when there is no narrative. And it is the importance of people connecting, especially if we don’t know who we are' 4 stars - Spoonfed 'This show is a long poem, shakily and delicately sketched in our minds by four women, who in similar clothing represent the life of one woman… A clear amount of loving research has gone into this work, which considers the terrible nature of dementia without making it overly sentimental' 4 stars – The Public Reviews ‘Heartfelt and lyrical’ – Guardian ‘Autobiographer is a work of vivid poetry’ –Time Out London

    ‘Since your daughter’s death I’ve not been much of a hypnotist.’
    A man loses his daughter to a car. Nothing now is what it is. It’s like he’s in a play – but he doesn’t know the words or the moves.
    The man who was driving the car is a stage hypnotist. Since the accident, he’s lost the power of suggestion. His act’s a disaster. For him, everything now is exactly what it is.
    For the first time since the accident, these two men meet. They meet when the Father volunteers for the Hypnotist’s act. And, this time, he really doesn’t know the words or the moves… 
    An Oak Tree is a remarkable play for two actors. The Father, however, is played by a different actor – male or female – at each performance. They walk on stage having neither seen nor read a word of the play
    they’re in…until they’re in it. This is a breath-taking projection of a performance, given from one actor to another, from a hypnotist to their subject, from an audience to the stage. An Oak Tree is a bold and
    absurdly comic play about loss, suggestion and the power of the mind.
    Winner of a Village Voice Obie for its autumn 2006 Off-Broadway run.
