Are northern voices inferior?


Sick of the endless stereotypes of the northerner as the clown, fool, or someone that lives such a dire life they must escape and move to the wonderful South…. this is an experimental attempt to deconstruct the voice and celebrate northern accents on stage.


Two women from across the North of England demolish the concept of ‘generic northern’ creating a celebratory space of northern pride. Through direct address, live feed projections, experimental sound design and movement they explore their relationship to their accent and give depth to traditionally stereotypical portrayals of what it is to be a northern woman on stage.
