On Friday I submitted the arts council evaluation report and metaphorically drew a line under this stage of the project. I reckon the most exciting finding of the research & development was discovering how much material is there and how much more there is to explore! So this has led on to the next logical question – what next?
Next I will be working with Lina B Frank (Ausform) to plan the next stages leading up to a full hour show! Whilst we haven’t a fixed timeline in place the rough aim is to have it complete and on the road by Autumn 2016. Between now and then imagine building structures, rehearsing in warehouses, more doodles of stick people, meetings over coffee, sleepless nights and tiny intense moments of joy. Watch this space to hear more.
We wouldn’t have reached this stage without everyone who was involved so thankyou to all the following:
Arts Council England, Lina B. Frank (Ausform), Alexandra Hamilton Ayres, Jimmy Whiteaker, Jo Munton (Vagabondi Puppets), Lyn Routledge, Alex Harvey (Ockham’s Razor), Giles Bennett, Joshua Wakely, Nathan Keates, Paul Blakemore, Nicole A’Court-Stuart, Amy Dartington, Circomedia, The Invisible Circus and The Island. As well as a MASSIVE THANKYOU to all the brilliant individuals who donated to the online fundraiser.
