Following an award-winning run at VAULT Festival 2017 with A Year From Now,
RedBellyBlack Theatre returns with the world premiere of OK, Bye – a fierce and fresh take on saying goodbye.
Whether you are saying goodbye to a person, an addiction or a place, everything you part ways with is concluded by the final farewell ‘OK, Bye’. Using their signature combination of physical theatre and dynamic storytelling, RedBellyBlack explores the very simple premise that saying ‘OK, Bye’ can mean thousands of different things: ‘I love you’, ‘I’m sorry’, ‘I never want to see your stupid face again’ or even just the end of a phone call. Using live music, lip syncing and movement, this production showcases raw, real-life stories from the general public
Director Vicki Baron comments, I am absolutely thrilled that the first production of OK, Bye will be part of the VAULT Festival 2018. Quite frankly, I am giddy about staging my work there again. We had an amazing experience at VAULTS last year because this festival has everything that brings out the best in our work: supportive audiences, wonderful production staff and an inspired programme of events. The Vaults always champions the very best that London fringe theatre has to offer and I cannot wait to be part of this exciting event all over again.
RedBellyBlack Theatre describe their style as theatrical tapas, taking the best of their resources and using them to make intimate, all-encompassing theatre. This includes tales from their own lives, writing, improvisation, music and movement.
Beautifully honest…storytelling at its most unlimited (London Theatre1 – A Year From Now 2017).
