Just got back from ACT Festival in Bilbao. It was great to meet and connect with so many artists from around the world and try out another version of the show to another audience. The festival, in the same model as BE in Birmingham, bases itself around bringing a collection of artists together at mealtimes - providing great food twice a day to encourage everyone to be in and around the festival hubs at all times. It's a great way of stimulating engagement and interaction between the artists in a way that feels unforced, informal and intimate and that builds actual relationships as people first, artists second.

rehearsing Perle today

PERLE showing this week @ CPT as part of Sprint Festival 2012, Wed 21 and Thurs 22 March


This week we will be showing our work in progress "Perle" at Camden People's Theatre's great festival for new work called Sprint.

Perle is an attempt to create a live cartoon based on one of the oldest poems in the English language, Pearl. With just one performer and his television, Perle is the story of a young father coming to terms with loss, told through a bold mixture of illustration and performance.
Perle is the collaboration between award-winning theatre company Dancing Brick (21:13, 6.0: How Heap and Pebble took on the World and Won) and the illustrator Serge Seidlitz, exploring how the poetry and silence of the comic book can be transferred to the stage.

The performance will be at 9.15 on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 at Camden People's Theatre (nearest tube Warren Street)

So this year has kicked off to a great start. We are delighted to announce that we were successful in getting Arts Council funding to take Captain Ko and the Planet of Rice to Edinburgh this summer, thanks to the Escalator East to Edinburgh Scheme.
We have been consulting with Professor Sergio della Sala since last year (with us in the picture) on creating this beautiful piece about time, memory and science fiction, using the colourful genre to talk about humans' relationship with time and the complexities of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease. We are collaborating with video artist Susanne Dietz and sound artist Caroline Devine to broaden our process and enrich our aesthetic.
