Individual Medley

Spoken word artist Katrina Quinn takes inspiration from a lifetime of swimming in her solo show about moving from Basingstoke to Zambia, aged 12. Individual Medley blends poetry, storytelling, physical theatre, swimming lessons, and a little early 00s R&B in a touching and funny cross-cultural coming-of-age memoir. Swimming inspires the rhythm of the poetry, the movement of Katrina’s body, and the vivid and vulnerable moments she welcomes the audience into. Teenage Katrina slowly and awkwardly learns to adjust to a new culture, new music, new dance moves, her changing body, and changing relationships. It’s a story about learning to fit into your skin and about finding a sense of home, no matter what place you’re in.
