Total Theatre Project - Belfast.

I've just got back from Belfast, working on a two week project with three companies, 10 performers, three shows and a whole heap of intensive workshops, which culminated in a sharing of ideas and work at The Grand Oprah House in Belfast City Centre.

The Total Theatre Project is a new venture. Please follow the link for more information about the project: www.tinderbox.org.uk/2011/02/15/total-theatre-ensemble 

I was working as one of the performers in the ensemble, a cast, based in Ireland of dancers, actors and musicians with various cross disciplinary skills. The three companies leading the project; Tinderbox Theatre Company, Assault Events and Theatre Abandon are all based in Belfast and Derry, Northern Ireland. The companies all produce either dance or theatre based performance work,  and  with the ensemble of performers spent two weeks experimenting through various workshops, with a team of writers and designers to create scripted scenes, physical sequences, devised and improvised character and text based work. Images and video footage of some of the final work produced during the project will be posted soon, so watch this space!...
