Bird/Make a HOO: Double Bill

David Pollock and I shared two worlds in one night to a sold out audience at Cumbernauld Theatre, March 6th, 2015. The response was overwhelmingly positive and it was a total joy to perform these both side by side. Thankyou to everyone who came along, for your wonderful feedback and to Cumbernauld Theatre for supporting this special production.

Bird features a lone being in a vast landscape – starved of both food and friendship,  she must be ready seize any small opportunity that might fly by. Performed with live foley accompaniment.

Make A HOO takes the form of modern folklore with a symphonic twist. It weaves together a day in the life of one central character and her struggle in finding her echo in a world of repetition. Inspired by an artist residency in Sri Lanka and an audio collaboration with sound artist Mark Vernon.

‘Pieraccini’s eyes are incredibly expressive- openly displaying joy, pain or vulnerability. Sweet, wry but heart-rending, it lingers long, like another’s scent on your clothes.’

Gareth K. Vile, The Skinny

‘Pieraccini is such a fine actor that her face and body seem to contain the whole tragedy of humanity’s double-edged relationship with nature in a single short show’

4 stars – Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman
