For those who are not aware, the Meltdown Festival returns for its 22nd outing this year! With a host of celebrity names having curated the festival in years past, this year’s host is following suit. A multi award winning musician and lead singer, songwriter and guitarist of new wave band Talking Heads, David Byrne brings an eclectic line up of musical performances and exciting theatrical experiences. Having been noticed and admired by the man himself in New York, the celebrated and forward thinking Gob Squad join this year’s line up. Theatrefullstop were lucky enough to speak to one of its performers, Sharon Smith, about the importance of collaboration, making work, no matter the budget and being a fan of David Byrne’s work!
