The wonderfully titled all female theatre company Jammy Voo brings 'A Corner of the Ocean' to the Exeter Northcott on 22 June and the North Devon Fringe on 23 June as part of their national tour.
A hit at Edinburgh Fringe 2011, and guest directed by Fringe First Award winning Jamie Wood (Top of the Worlds Paperweight), all female theatre company Jammy Voo tells the story of a man who goes missing in a mysterious diving accident. The story of his disappearance strangely touches the lives of four women in their different parts of the world. Featuring puppetry, a capella singing,physical storytelling and alive musical score,A Corner of the Ocean takes a comic and bittersweet look at our everyday struggles to keep a head above the water.
The show explores the desire to carve out a place for oneself in a continuously fluctuating world: the hilarity, absurdity and difficulty of seeking validity in a modern life where so little is secure or permanent. The company creates every element of the work collaboratively- from making the puppets, costumes and set to writing thetext and music.
Jammy Voos first show Something Blue was a hit at Edinburgh 2007 and went on to tour both nationally and internationally. A Corner of the Ocean was devised by the company and has been developed with actor and director Toby Jones (The Right Size, Complicite, National Theatre), director Jamie Wood and composer and sound artist Gregory Hall.
Jammy Voo is an international, Devon based theatre company founded by four female graduates of the Jacques Lecoq Theatre School in Paris: Yngvild Aspeli (Norway), who also studied at Esnam; Kate Edwards (UK), who has worked with CCC Clowns, South Hams Arts Collective and Theatre Royal Plymouth; Emily Kreider (USA), whose past work includes shows with Friche Theatre Urbaine and Companie Houppz and Eliza Wills (UK), also a founder member of Blue Scream Theatre, whose work includes Fringe First Award winning Tom Thumb.
