Over the past decade, we've held over 100 D&D events all over the country (and beyond!).

1. D&D Satellite: Puppetry – Shackled By The Past?

An invitation from Slavka Jovanović, Director of Suspense Festival: I recently saw an anarchic punk puppetry show, with no ‘puppets’ in it. One of the most exhilarating shows I’ve seen. But no puppets; some might have been disappointed, having expected a marionette or a wood carved table-top rod puppet. None in sight. Read more

7. D&D Satellite: How Come We're All Suddenly Storytellers?

Hi, I’m Stephe. And I’m a storyteller. When I say ‘storytelling’ I mean an improvised re-telling of a traditional tale, a modern practice inspired by ancient oral arts, an intimate live encounter between teller and audience. But I also work with actors, with writers, with directors and with devisers. And - guess what? They all call themselves storytellers too. Read more

8. D&D Satellite: What Do We Do About East Asians Trapped As Portraying The Other?

I’m Vera Chok and I’m an actor, writer and performance maker. What has changed since the 2013 D&D on East Asian actors and roles? While East Asians are more visible and have achieved huge successes, I believe that we are still being marginalised despite being the third largest ethnic group in the UK.Read more

20. D&D Satellite: What Are We Going To Do About The Gap Between Commercial And Subsidised Theatre?

I'm Miranda Debenham and I'm a small scale subsidised producer and marketer. I'm at the start of my career and I'm already frustrated by the gap I see between the commercial and subsidised sectors. It seems to me that there is a giant chasm between the two groups, but that if they could work together both sides could improve their work, and improve our whole industry! Maybe I could even stop referring to them as sides.Read more
