Behind the Beat

A Work In Progress sharing of Simon Roth's first ever solo show, ‘Behind the Beat’ in embryonic form.

After five days of R&D and experimentation with theatre-maker Haley McGee, Simon Roth shares the seeds and ideas of his new solo show ‘Behind the Beat’.

Simon has spent his life being a drummer and writing about himself in the third person. This is an early-stage Work In Progress sharing of his first-ever solo show.

This show explores Simon’s relationship with the drums, an instrument he has played since he was three years old, and treats this as a metaphor for all the other things in his life. Simon will be drawing on my writings, musical ideas and artistic reflections to create a theatrical show.
