We’ll look at the creative process we’ve developed over 14+ years including: an overview of the company’s work to date with excerpts of film / images and more; why we do what we do; we’ll explore how the body and devising is at the heart of our theatre making which is rooted in the physical; how our Lecoq training influenced the work; the themes and social-political ideas underpinning our theatre productions; our approach to working with production teams, designers, and all things backstage/behind the scenes; and there’ll be a chance for you to ask questions too.
