About: Head of a Woman – Grey Matters: A Play for Six Brains

Head of a Woman – Grey Matters: A Play for Six Brains

Grey Matters is an exploration of human community. The play attempts to straddle the void between how we experience the world individually, and with/through other people – families, friends, society, and the world at large. It considers the extent to which we truly understand, connect with or empathise with others, and how far our perceptions of other people exist merely in our own minds.

This piece is the result of having six directors in one rehearsal room. They come from different countries, backgrounds, approaches and philosophies. Together they found a common theatrical language and worked together to create a play which reflects them both as a collective and as a collection of strong individuals. Crafted with care and attention to detail, Grey Matters is a piece where form mirrors content and together these mirror the company’s style and approach to theatre creation.

Head of a Woman is an international company of six artists living in London. They formed in 2012 as part of the MA Advanced Theatre Practice course at Central School of Speech and Drama.

Head of a Woman is committed to working in the grey area. They find narratives in words, movements, sounds and images. Their aims are to stir, to move and to arrest the senses and emotions of the spectator.

The performance is an offering, an experience they share with the audience, a space for questions to be asked and possibilities to arise.
