New show from award-winning Daniel Bye goes viral…

Daniel Bye Going Viral

From the award-winning creator of The Price of Everything and How to Occupy an Oil Rig comes a new show from the frontline of an epidemic comes to Arts Centre Washington on Thursday 26 November.

Daniel Bye’s latest solo show delves into the terrifying knowns and unknowns of epidemics, how they spread and how society reacts. Created with the support of scientific advisor Dr Mark Booth, Going Viral explores the spread of disease, of panic, and of ideas.

Daniel Bye is a theatre-maker from Middlesbrough and Associate Artist of ARC Stockton. His recent touring work includes The Price of Everything, which has been performed over 100 times in the UK and internationally, and the award-winning How to Occupy an Oil Rig.

Daniel said: “The contemporary obsession with disease is grisly. Maybe it's because we've nothing real to worry about. But still, it's totally fascinating. And in a world where we're more connected to each other than we've ever been, it's only going to get more pressing.”

Dr Mark Booth, Senior Lecturer in the School of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health at Durham University, commented: “Public awareness of how infections can enter our bodies, easily spread across populations, cause illness and confusion. We all benefit, I think, from the synergistic results of combining art and science. Dan's work is an important contribution to this process as it seeks to shift people's perceptions and increase their knowledge about epidemic disease through strong and effective dramatisation - something that an academic paper alone cannot achieve.”

Daniel Bye presents Going Viral at Arts Centre Washington on Thursday 26 November at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £8.50 / £6 (conc) and can be purchased from Arts Centre Washington or by calling 0191 219 3455.
