Blizzard & Q&A With Emily Woof

Theatre |
12th August 2023

Starts 7.30pm | Studio 1 | Pay What You Decide

Blizzard is a brand-new solo show from Emily Woof, premiering at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Emily’s landmark solo shows Sex III and Revolver won back-to-back Fringe Firsts at The Assembly Rooms over twenty years ago. Now she is back with a small epic about Nietzsche and dance, animals and neuroscience, love and the soul. Weird. Free. Expressive. Untrammelled. Uniquely free.

A woman gives a lecture on neuroscience at a conference in Zurich. Her words are not her own.

They are those of her husband, too ill to attend himself. As she speaks, the stuff of life unravels around her. Clothes decide they don’t want to be clothes anymore. A dress becomes reluctant to be seen in public. Plant life demands urgent attention. A neuronal avalanche transports her to the past and offers understanding, as she finds herself in the deserted asylum where Nietzsche spent his last few months, dancing.

A comic, urgent, and profound show about the body and its place in the more-than-human world.

‘Woof is a novelist of the first order. Her writing has richness, complexity and embodies life force.’ Financial Times

‘Woof is a captivating storyteller.’ The Times
