I went to meet with a Stroke Association Communication Support Group this week – talking about what life is like after stroke. It was pretty humbling. The conversation was the first stage of a project that seeks to find ways of representing some of those experiences using storytelling, dance and music. I will be collaborating with the saxophonist Jesse Bannister and the dancer Annika Kompart.
There will be a presentation of work in development in the Donald Roy Theatre at the University of Hull on April 21st at 7:30pm. It will be followed by a discussion with the audience and stake-holders.
This project is kindly supported by the Ferens Educational Trust.
What do we teach when we teach physical theatre?
I wrote a short piece for Theatre, Dance and Performance Training about the trouble with defining physical theatre during teaching.
I adapted my theatre piece, Punctum, for the radio. It’s on tomorrow (16th October) at 8pm (repeated on Thursday at 9am) on Resonance 104.4 FM in London or online at resonancefm.com.
The show is about family, heredity, sandwiches and photography – with reflections on Roland Barthes’ Camera Lucida, genetics, and the Chauvet Cave Paintings.
Video and photos from The History of Water. I wasn’t able to film the whole thing due to time constraints, and because the real point of the performance was to be in the water.
The water and light have created some ace effects.
