Beat is a show served in two parts, these parts playing consecutively over two weeks.
Part 1 explores silence as an essential element of drama and a by-product of human communication – does silence speak louder than words? How do humans communicate and miscommunicate? Does silence carry across culture?
Part 2 is a cacophony of noise: boisterous, rude, fantastic. Noise and sound are inherent to everyday life – it exhausts and invigorates.
Beat is SUDS’ annual compilation show that offers you the freshest new talent from the society in binary shows featuring short student works, acted, directed and produced by students of the society.
Part 1: Wednesday 13th April – Saturday 16th April
Part 2: Wednesday 20th April – Saturday 23rd April
