I CANNOT MAKE NOISE WHEN I SCREAM

Composer | Writer | Creator

IN COLLABORATION WITH LUKE BROWN DANCE

I CANNOT MAKE NOISE WHEN I SCREAM is a physical theatre/music theatre piece about toxic female friendships, bullying, warped realities and psychosis. The story exists within a world where the subconscious and conscious intertwine through a synth-pop song score, movement and narrative.

We follow the story of Mia, the girl who kept dead moths stuck on her ceiling as a teenager, Jenni, Mia’s despotic childhood ‘best friend’ and their unwitting partners. Now, in their dinner-party-fuelled 30s, hidden conflict and a subconscious crisis force a bloody, buried past back up to the ruptured surface of their friendship until everything is upturned. Funded by the Arts Council and LEH Emerging Talent Award, Kate is currently creating a concept album of songs from ICMNWIS. ICMNWIS was first workshopped at Lyric Hammersmith in 2019
