…a series of theatre pieces devised by you, the performer(s)!

Each shamble is for a solo musician and their instrument.

The score lists instructions and activities for devising your own shamble, inviting you to explore the physical absurdity of musical performance and how that absurdity manifests in sound.

A shamble can either be devised individually, or in collaboration with a director/choreographer, or with James.

shambles may also be combined to devise a group performance.
