Tiny Dynamite

2003, 2001

This was a co-production with Paines Plough. Writer Abi Morgan had expressed a fascination with the performance style and the onstage relationship between myself and Steven. This was a project loosely based on that and for us, meant a return to performing.

We worked with co-director Vicky Featherstone on what was a huge learning curve for us, both as performers and directors. It was also a lesson in restraint. Up until this point our work had become synonymous with beat beats and sweaty bodies. Tiny Dynamite was proudly delicate but no less physically considered. It was an extremely exciting creative team and a beautiful text from Abi. It was a very simple yet powerful piece. It was still and tender and hugely successful.

Tiny Dynamite was about the intricacies of an intense triangle of friends. It was about dealing with loss, forgiveness and learning to let go.
