James Shaw’s The Army of Noise set for stint at Constellations this February



The Army of Noise, a new psychological play about the journey of self discovery, comes to Constellations this February as Getintothis’ Craig MacDonald unearths the details. 

With the first glimpses of Spring upon us, Liverpool writer and director James Shaw brings his latest production The Army of Noise to the cultural headquarters of the Baltic Triangle this month, when the psychological play comes to Constellations from February 17-24.

Funded by the Arts Council, the productions bring together classic elements of both theatre and puppetry with the modern use of 3D projection mapping and turntablism to tell the tale of the teenage boy Asher as he struggles with self-doubt and fear and with the pressure to “do something” with his life.

Much like his highly acclaimed Firearms and Fingertips which focused on gun crime in society, the play will look upon issues that many people face on a daily occurrence.

The audience will follow Asher’s journey as he meets The Army of Noise, a series of characters who portray his present state of mind, as they help him to face his troubles. With renowned deck destroyer DJ Rasp helping to orchestrate the night’s psychological journey, the audience will be whisked into a surreal world where anything is possible.
