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
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 song-writer with a taste for big ambitions,
amongst some other stuff.
Feeling rough in the five in the morning sunlight,
Jessie’s sight is fixed on the path that Allie lights
And like a moth to a flame in the night,
Written in spoken word poetry and underscored entirely by original music created live, Electrolyte is an explosive piece of gig theatre exploring grief, depression and psychosis.
‘A sense of powerful hope’
‘Loud, liberating electronica’
