Flashes by Isley Lynn @ SOHO Upstairs / by polina kalinina

Currently working on a new show, written by Isley Lynn.

The brief was to commission a show for 19 actors where they all had equal billing but that didn't feel too much like a 'showcase'. Tough. Having wanted to work with Isley for a while I was glad that she accepted the challenge with me. It's difficult to describe 'Flashes' because it's a mercurial, fizzy sort of beast. It is a multi-narrative maze of stories. You see flashes of people's lives in the moment they make an impulsive decision, or speak their mind, or notice someone for the first time. 

It's all of that. With some dancing. And a flashmob in the bar!
