Gemma’s voyage of self-discovery

Evesham Editorial 13th May, 2016 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016   0

A HUMOROUS one-woman show detailing life’s journey of self discovery is heading to Evesham.

Gemma Bolwell will perform her acclaimed production of ‘How To Reappear’ at Evesham Arts Centre on Saturday (May 14) after having success in Swindon, Stroud, Bristol, Cheltenham, Gloucester and Bath.

The show explores the moments in which life changes, like when you wake up in the morning and no longer recognise yourself. It’s about how to deal with big life transitions and how to journey towards a clearer sense of self.

For Gemma, the reason for creating the show was the all-encompassing experience of becoming a mother, which is when she lost a clear sense of personal identity she never realised she had.

But the ideas tackled are broader than this as one of the characters portrayed is a ‘Fog-In-The-Head-Expert’, who sets the audience intriguing little exercises around the theme of identity.

It’s weighty stuff, but the show is fast-paced and humorous and is characterised by playful interaction with audience members, who are encouraged to think about their own life journeys and their relationship with self-identity.

Many have been moved to laughter and tears during the course of the performance, so come along to this thought-provoking and thoroughly absorbing night out.

The event starts at 8pm and costs £8 for adults and £6 for concessions.
