Starting Again

Shining lights on fabric and our own bodies might not sound like a terribly persuasive premise for a week of work, but during a week in Lancaster Arts' Nuffield Theatre (as Nuffield Bursary recipients for 2017) it's been brilliant. The first day, we figure out how we can fly things.…

In the dark

We've a week coming up in the Nuffield Theatre at Lancaster Arts, part of the support we're getting through the Nuffield Bursary this year. We're going in with just some ideas. This is always a risk. It's a privilege to be able to spend time in a technically supported space…

Yorkshire Tales

We've been spending a lot of time lately in a part of the country we've never worked before: West Yorkshire. In a small town near Halifax, called Elland, where we're making LANDED with local people, hearing their stories and discovering their place. It began with an invitation to lunch: liver…

Audiences

Last night, we performed Near Gone to a full house. Nothing too unusual about that. But there were two things that made it rather special. One was the date. It was five years to the day since the events which inspired the show. So it was quite an emotionally charged…

Declining Solo

At year’s end

This year has been a very exciting time for the us. We have had some wonderful audiences across the country and abroad, we have made new friends and partnerships, and we have learned a whole load! We toured Near Gone to Poland, Ireland and Ukraine and we visited Croatia, Italy,…

LANDED in Brixham

We're delighted to be taking part in Torbay's Ageing Well Festival, especially as the event addresses some of the same ideas about older members of our communities as our LANDED project set out to investigate and challenge. All sorts of events are happening across the 1st-4th in Torquay, Paignton and…
