“I’m kissing you because it’s easier than explaining why I don’t want to.”
A line from QUIET VIOLENCE, the debut solo show written and performed by Sophie Rose who was part of the Soho Theatre’s Young Company (SYC). It’s a humorous and poignant look at our self-destructive patterns, a spoken word comedy show about the small things that we do to make life harder for ourselves and gets us into situations we don’t like. It’s a “Fast, physical and full of anarchic poetry, shards of life collide in this powerful story of punishment and rescue.” And it’s all set on a inflatable sofa, “so it’s quite fun,” Sophie said.
After touring the show, including the Edinburgh Fringe, Sophie returned to the Soho with QUIET VIOLENCE last month as part of the Soho Rising series, and signed my sketch of her on the inflatable sofa, which was quite fun.
