Outlier | Live Broadcast | Thursday

This event contains digital content (live streaming or video on demand)

“The sky was painfully big, but our worlds were small, our lives little. So when we found each other in the muddle of it all, that feeling of belonging was addictive.”

Mal, Ama, Lewis and Oskar have grown up together; hedonistically charging through life in rural Devon. They are railing against the stories that have been written for them as they stand at the precipice of adulthood. But all the space can be suffocating, and it’s tough sometimes – feeling so low in a place so beautiful.  

The powerful poetics of Malaika Kegode and soaring music of Bristol band Jakabol combine in this autobiographical gig-theatre show. Genre-defying and emotional, Outlier explores the impact of isolation, addiction and friendship on young people in the often forgotten places.

Made possible thanks to public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Written and performed by Malaika Kegode
With original music written and performed by Jakabol
Co-produced with Bristol Old Vic Ferment
