Friendship and music connect Alex and Robbi as they hungrily chase admiration while facing their inner most demons. When playing around with a track, they make something gloriously euphoric and wickedly addictive. However, with this new promise of potential and fame, the demons come ever closer. Both are forced to ask a crushing question: what is the high they are really chasing, and is the come down worth it?
Directed by Rob Drummer (for Boundless: Natives, Confidence, Radio Elusia), with an immersive
staging at Dilston Gallery in Southwark Park and new music from Anikdote (35 million + streams on Spotify), this new show is about creative obsessions, re-connecting with the world and whether chasing the high of being worshipped by millions is ever really enough. A unique production, Addictive Beat blurs the lines between theatre and live music. Boundless are also collaborating with music events ticketing platform DICE for the project, in an innovative partnership that aims to bring theatre to new audiences of music fans. The EP with songs from the show is available now on Spotify, just search for Addictive Beat by Boundless Theatre. The production is generously supported by Cockayne – Grants for the Arts and The London Community Foundation.
