“We are a blip. A speck of dust.
To be wiped off the face of time
like you might a bike chain’s rust.
But to each of us,
we are everything.”

Electrolyte is a multi-award-winning piece of gig theatre that powerfully explores mental health for a contemporary audience. Written in spoken word poetry and underscored by original music ranging from “blasts of sound to lyrical sweetness”, this unstoppable production is performed by six multi-instrumentalists who seamlessly integrate live music with expert storytelling.

Electrolyte is the winner of the Mental Health Fringe Award, The Stepladder Award, The LET Award, The Voice Mag Pick of The Fringe Award and the Pleasance Best Newcomer Award 2018.


Duration: 70 minutes

Recommended age 14+This production contains strobe lighting, strong language, mild adult themes and themes of mental health which some audience members may find destressing.
