The Sunday Times
How did we get here? How do we find our way through this? And exactly who are we again?
In Bill’s new show, EN ROUTE TO NORMAL, Bill ponders this and other questions that this moment in history has thrown up, and tries to see a way through the strange unreality of our new world.
Tracing lines through chaotic moments in history, Bill seeks out parallels where human resilience and our ability to endure has got us through times of strife.
He recounts his own experiences of dealing with isolation, including his thoughts on the ‘sounds of lockdown’. This led to a greater appreciation of birdsong and how the natural music of nature, in general, has inspired many great composers throughout history and perhaps led to the creation of music itself. Our reliance on technology has inspired Bill himself to create dance remixes of video-calling ringtones.
Through music, songs, and memories, Bill considers our changing priorities, the wonder of dogs, how little things can keep you on track and rhapsodises on his newfound love of skydiving.
In a show whose title Bill had written before we’d even heard of COVID, EN ROUTE TO NORMAL has become not just a funny, heartwarming mix of stories, music and history, but a personal mission to find our way through these Strange Times!
