Description

In the summer of 2020 as a pandemic raged, Yoshika was processing the death of her beloved grandmother, Ann. A woman of few words, Ann's main outlet was her glorious, virtuosic knitting. As she approached the end of her life, Ann started a project with no pattern and no end goal. Yoshika now takes up this piece where Ann left off.  A show about love, grief and knitting from experimental music/theatre makers Yoshika Colwell and Max Barton (of award-winning company Second Body). Original music, metaphysics and verbatim material combine to explore the power in small acts of creativity.

Colwell is a heart-warming artist, her voice and stage presence reminiscent of Laura Marling.
