Staying Alive pulses with poems about growing up and old, about tumbling in and out of love, the oxygen of birth, our wars and peace and the downright ordinary; here’s a magical transformation of language which the best poetry achieves. Created by a company of three performers including actress and lead singer with The Selecter and Three Men And Black, Pauline Black, actress and performance poet Sara-Jane Arbury and actor/singer/cellist Matthew Sharp of Opera North, with director Steve Byrne (Royal National Theatre, Interplay Theatre Leeds) and designer Duncan Law. The show uses live and recorded music.
