Kieran Hurley: BEATS

A double bill with Thatcher's Children at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh

Wed 25 - Sat 28 Apr 2012 | 7pm | £15/£11/£6

In 1994 the Criminal Justice Act effectively outlawed raves, banning public gatherings around amplified music characterised by “the emission of a succession of repetitive beats.”

Beats is a new monologue piece written and performed by Kieran Hurley with Arches resident DJ Johnny Whoop; a coming-of-age story exploring rebellion, apathy, and the irresistible power of gathered youth. With techno. Lots of techno.

Kieran Hurley is the winner of last year’s Platform 18 Award, for which two of Scotland’s most exciting theatre makers are selected and supported in staging their production at the Arches and Traverse theatres. Following its run at the Arches from 18th-22nd April, Beats now appears in a double bill with Gary Gardiner’s Thatcher’s Children at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, from 25th-28th April.

N.B. This performance will contain strobe lighting.

Praise for Hitch:

“There is intense skill in Hurley’s storytelling… by the end you’d follow him anywhere”
