Sydney

So Delay was presented at the Sydney Fringe. It was at the Old 505 Theatre in Newtown.
I was in Sydney as my short film What It Feels Like won the International Documentary Award at the Focus On Ability Film Festival. I was there for 2 weeks, thanks to the festival and took the opportunity to present Delay at the Sydney Fringe. I has an awesome time! Would love to go back and do it again sometime.
More news on 2 more performances of Delay real soon.

New Performance Zine – Delay

Delay fron cover

After a bit of a break I am presenting a new Zine Performance as part of the Sprint Festival at Camden People’s Theatre.

The performance is called Delay and is in a zine which will be available to purchase at Camden People’s Theatre from Monday 5 March to Saturday 24 March. The Zines are only £2 and tell a queer love story that takes place in the bar of Camden People’s Theatre.

More images and info soon.

 

Letters We Leave Behind

In late 2016 I was awarded a residency from the National Theatre of Scotland as part for their Starter for Ten scheme.  During the residency I created the framework for a new Private Play involving puppetry. The title of this show is Letters We Leave Behind. It is still a work in progress and is a special show involving 5 puppets that the audience member will manipulate. The puppet in turn will give a letter to the participant that the audience member can read. There will be five letters (one for each puppet) and they tell the story from the show. Letters We Leave Behind will be completed in early 2018.

New Mini-Zines Series

Zines with illustrations and performance scripts are a major part of what Do It Theatre do.

Our Zines are usually created to be read in our unique installation/performance spaces, however with this new Mini-Zine series we are changing the format.

We are creating and publishing a set of Mini-Zines that can be read and enjoyed in a series of specific outdoor and indoor locations – or alternatively you can read them whenever you like. The idea is to experiment with performance as text.

The Mini-Zines are a combination of text, illustrations and comic books and tackle a variety of different issues.

Information on Mini-Zine 1 – Middle Meadow Walk is below. More Mini-Zines will follow in the future.

 

Middle Meadow Walk

“There are many streets in Edinburgh that  serve no purpose” Middle Meadow Walk is a pathway in Edinburgh that runs through a parkland area known as The Meadows. At times it can be quiet and at other times it can be busy with people walking their dogs or out enjoying the sun. Middle Meadow Walk is a story that takes you out of yourself. It gives you space to think, relax and then act. The story takes place at Middle Meadow Walk, but if you cannot make it to that location, you can read it wherever you like. The Middle Meadow Walk Mini-Zines will be distributed throughout Edinburgh during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017. Look for it at various venues and if you find one, please read it and take it home. It is not a flyer for a show. It is the show. Look on twitter for updates.

After the Fringe Festival the Mini-Zine for Middle Meadow Walk will be available to download on www.doit-theatre.com.
