Show Information

'We are a blip. A spec of dust. To be wiped off the face of time like you might a bike chain's rust.

But to each of us, we are everything'

Jessie's sick of Leeds, a city she thought she would never leave. But the aimlessness of the people she once believed she would always need is suffocating. Wondering whether she's had enough, in a dirty nightclub not too far off, Jessie's blinded by the light of Allie Touch a singer/songwriter with a taste for big ambition, amongst some other stuff. Feeling rough in the five in the morning half light, Jessie's sight is fixed on the path that Allie writes. And like a moth to a flame in the night she ignites.

Electrolyte is a multi-award-winning piece of gig theatre that powerfully explores mental health for a contemporary audience. Written in spoken word poetry and underscored by original music this acclaimed production is performed by six multi-instrumentalists who seamlessly integrate live music with expert storytelling.

Electrolyte is the winner of the Mental Health Fringe Award, The Stepladder Award, The LET Award, The Voice Mag Pick of The Fringe Award and the Pleasance Best Newcomer Award 2018.
