In 1972 Stan Gooch published The Total Man, notes towards an evolutionary theory of personality. This extensive volume spans magic, religion, politics, art, morality and justice. Gooch discusses topics including whether or not Labour MPs have larger ears than Conservatives, and neurotics larger ears than psychotics.
In this new commission, poet, playwright and performer Hannah Silva channels Gooch and explores his story through a musical layering of words, speech, quotations and virtuosic linguistic and vocal play.
Hannah Silva will be performing on all tour dates.
Hannah Silva has performed internationally and throughout the UK including at Latitude Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe and on Radio 3’s The Verb. Her solo show Opposition toured 2011-12 and was described in a five star review by What’s on Stage as ‘radical, political, courageous’. Her next play, Hunger will tour Autumn 2013.
