There is one more week to catch Captain Ko and the Planet of Rice at Edinburgh Festival. I collaborated with Dancing Brick Theatre Company (Thomas Eccleshare, Valentina Ceschi) to develop the work which is the culmination of 18 months research and development exploring neurodegenerative illness in consultation with Prof Sergio Della Sala from Edinburgh University’s Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology. Captain Ko and the Planet of Rice tells the story of three linked characters who are, for different reasons, outside of time.
“a poetic and beautiful work that taps into one of the most sensitive and unpredictable of human faculties – time and memory – in a way that is challenging, unusual and wonderfully inspiring. This is a pioneering work for our age that is a real privilege to witness.”
