In the 1970s 17% of the UK’s population lived alone. Today it is 31%.

Separated from the mainland by a large sound, or channel of water, The Island is home to one human being and a huge colony of sea birds.

Tender Buttons will take you on a theatrical tour of The Island, through a labyrinth of archive film, field recordings and collected stories of solitude.

Sounds & Guts is a playful tale about the fine line between being alone and being lonely.

Tess Denman-Cleaver is an artist and researcher based in the North East. Her practice explores how live performance functions as a dialogic space in which socio-political and philosophical issues are addressed.

Sounds and Guts has been funded by Arts Council England and the show will is made in association with Queen’s Hall Arts Centre, Hexham.
