Project Connect
Stacey Carmichael

Group Devised Physical Theatre (Exploring text, movement, sound, technology)

How do we connect to others? Has this changed given the current global climate? How do we connect to self, others and the world outside ourselves? How do we connect as artists to explore concepts and ideas? What is that point of connection where our different art forms and artistic expressions meet? Using group devised theatre processes and assembling a group of creatives from varying artistic backgrounds and training; Stacey wishes to bring together a group of theatre makers to use these questions as a launching point for exploration and play!
