A Beautiful Way To Be Crazy


A Beautiful Way To Be Crazy was in the middle of a nationwide tour before it was sadly cut short in early 2020. This broadcast has been specially recorded for you to enjoy from the safety of your home.

Based on interviews with female-identifying practitioners across the music industry, A Beautiful Way to be Crazy is a tale of growing up and finding a voice.

Weaving together spoken word, live music, verbatim audio from the interviews and a few genuine teenage diary entries, award-winning poet Genevieve Carver and her multi-instrumental live band (Tim Knowles, Brian Bestall and Ruth Nicholson) take you on a journey that begins in 1999 and isn’t over yet.

Expect to meet the spirits of Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone and Delia Derbyshire as Genevieve navigates her way through school bullies, the pressures of mainstream media, anxiety and pregnancy scares, but comes out smiling. A Beautiful Way to be Crazy is an innovative piece of gig theatre exploring what it means to be a girl in the business of music, with a soundtrack moving seamlessly between pop, rock, folk, soul, classical and electronica.

This performance is available to watch  ‘on demand’ until Sunday 21st February. After booking a ticket you will be emailed a link to access the recording at any time and however often you like until the end of the run.
