People there: Jessica Phillippi, Jane Howard, Colin Grenfell, Debbie Hannan, Fiona Sturgeon Shea, Andy Corelli, Andrea Herbert, Rachel Amey This was our list.... anyone in the group who wanted to could write a comment on the paper - so the list is of individual wants as opposed to a group decisions....... we discussed and talked around the different ideas and provocations - and also made a list of theatre we had seen that “rocked our world” .... I want theatre that...... tells me really good stories excites me, engages me transforms perspective inspires me to tell everyone I know to sent and makes me want to create more like it reveals itself that I don't feel indifferent about I can learn from is ambitious (regardless of budget!) is for me that shuts up my critical voice that keeps me on the edge of my seat that shows me new actors I've never seen before “synergy” raises the bar for my own practice that risks pretension, artiness that is socially engaged is coherent, incoherent that makes me research afterwards that moves me that makes me fall in love with theatre again that moves me that makes me REACT rather than form OPINION that is part of a longer journey that is not too long that acknowledges the audience in the room that entertains that risks an itemised theatre ticket where payment is collected after watching the show, having judged elements of the production/art Feedback we talked for quite a while around feedback and commenting on work and how this works and doesn't - mainly feeling that it didn't- and actually could become a new session.... How do we give/receive feedback? -place and time? -new strategies to encourage it? -how to give it to “more established” folk? Shows that rocked us (n.b. some of these shows divided opinion a lot within the group!) Prudencia Hart Alan Cumming's Macbeth Fuerzabruta Matilda Mission Drift - The Team Bright Black - Vox Motus Earthquakes in London - Headlong Roadkill - Ankur Black Watch - NTS Blackout - Thickskin Nofitstate circus Dancing Brick Beef (Al Seed) The Wild Bride! More... A new list was placed up in the main room after this session to see if anyone wanted to add more... watch this space.....
