Foley Explosion is an immersive storytelling show about Russia; an alternative spy thriller featuring live Foley sound effects. Looping technology layered sounds to conjure a movie in the mind, this solo show by Julie Rose Bower documents a year spent in Russia. Featuring disinformation, fake news and cameos from the intelligence community past and present: Edward Snowden, Grigori Rasputin and Alexander Litvinenko.
“…While such a scenario resembles the labyrinthine twists and turns of a Cold War spy thriller, it is in the telling that makes Bower‘s show so special. Amplified heels, slamming doors and metronomic toys are looped in such a way as to create a found sound symphony that conjures up a very noisy world.”
