Following on from A Grand Design in 2020, Cheyenne Alexandria Phillips returns for a new collaboration with Checkpoint Theatre, with Vulnerable (An 8-part podcast).
While A Grand Design looked at biodiversity and the wonder of life, Vulnerable instead reflects on the year of the pandemic, from vaccines to hopes that things return to the way they were.
Taking on an autobiographical slant, Cheyenne will speak about coping with cancelled freelance gigs and decimated income in a global pandemic, while trying not to let her congenital heart disease get in the way. Taking us through accounts of an unconventional childhood and the struggle to reduce her medical risk, Cheyenne invites us to consider our collective efforts, or lack thereof, in keeping each other safe, and whether for the most vulnerable amongst us, will it all be too little too late?
Vulnerable is directed and dramaturged by Huzir Sulaiman, with sound design by Shah Tahir. It will be available from 17th June, two new episodes of the podcast will be released every two days, across Spotify, SoundCloud, and YouTube.
