Nino is a work-in-progress physical theatre piece which explores what it feels like to be a woman living in poverty in contemporary Britain. A collaboration between performer Melanie Jordan and Glasgow-based theatre company Tidy Carnage the work highlights the stories of those who have no voice or power.
Nino is a darkly comic performance inspired by one woman’s experience of living in poverty and grappling with the benefits system; struggling to get by every day, with not much more than her imagination to keep her going. We never hear her speak, but we see into the absurdity and bleakness of her reality, and the voices that surround her, telling her she’s worth nothing because she has nothing. Part clown, part dance, part soundscape, Nino is a unique and searing exploration of poverty and the benefits system in contemporary Britain.
