ST KILDA - A Horrific Scottish Sound Excursion With Live Foley Looping

Written and Performed by Jody Christopherson

Directed by Isaac Byrne

Sound and Foley Design by Andy Evan Cohen

Dialect Coaching by Chloe Dirksen with voice-overs featuring Michael de Roos

After the death of her Grandmother, an American woman travels to an abandoned island off the coast of Scotland and unearths a dark family secret.

Steeped in Scottish folklore and told in a tradition as ancient as its subject matter, this tale of supernatural horror is performed and technically executed entirely by Jody Christopherson. Foley instrumentation, live singing, and looping create a multi-layered soundscape in near darkness. Instruments include violin bows on bowls of water, cigar box guitars, pie tins full of salt, folk singing and more. This narrative is inspired by the 1930 evacuation of Hirta, St Kilda's only inhabitable island, and the role that music plays in women's narratives.

"One of the funniest, spookiest experiences Ive ever had at the theater. With the timing of a seasoned comedian, Christopherson sparkles as a story-teller, breathing exciting new life into this oldest of art-forms. Shes a visionary in the theater world and legendary story-teller." - The Theatre Times

"A not-so-typical, one-woman performance that completely blew away the audience. . . an amazing sight for the senses. . . enchanting." - Woman About Town

"Chilling, a tribute to long-buried tales and the power they obscure.", New York

"If you like Laurie Anderson, try St Kilda."- Minneapolis Star Tribune
