This is the minute I imagine most of all. I imagine it because though I know it happened I can’t actually remember it. Why would I? I’m five weeks old and wrapped in a tartan rug.’
Kate’s writing an equation. It’s the biggest equation she’s ever written because it’s also the biggest story she’s ever told. It’s the story of her life.
Mixing open water swimming, dubious teenage crushes, best friends, Exeter summers, Yorkshire winters, picnic blankets, unexpected kisses and a dollop of physics, Blueprint looks at how you make sense of the world when you’re just about to leave it.
Told through forty four individual stories, as filtered by Kate’s dying brain, in Blueprint WBN explore memory, faith and how we tell our life stories.
Filmed at the Bike Shed Theatre in October 2014 as part of our residency. Trailer and filming by David Salas.
