Wax Lyrical presents Shadow of the Mind, discover the passions and secrets of a new generation of artists.

Set in a dystopian future where young people who fail to fit into society are sent to the ominous ‘institute’ to be fixed, Shadow of the Mind combines spoken word, rap, music and visuals to create an immersive experience that will expose a young generation’s thoughts, feelings, passions and beliefs that are usually kept hidden in the shadows.

Wax Lyrical are a collective of young artists who have come together from different walks of lives to explore their passions and develop original performance work. Find out more about the project.

Wax Lyrical have been supported by guest tutors: Deanna Rodger, Zena Edwards, Nick Makoha, Oneness, and Anthony Anaxagorou.

Devised and directed by Kat Francois, with music by Spider and visual design by SDNA.
