I want theatre that........... rocks the fabric of my being
rachel amey - 31 July 2012
REPORT DETAILI want theatre that……………
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
inspires me to tell everyone I know to sent and makes me want to create more like it
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
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
an itemised theatre ticket where payment is collected after watching the show, having judged elements of the production/art
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!)
Alan Cumming's Macbeth
Mission Drift - The Team
Bright Black - Vox Motus
Earthquakes in London - Headlong
Roadkill - Ankur
Black Watch - NTS
Blackout - Thickskin

A new list was placed up in the main room after this session to see if anyone wanted to add more… watch this space…..
