Radical Makers performances
In May 2021, the Radical Makers group shared two digital performances on the theme of division using transmedia storytelling, devised and participatory theatre techniques. Their performance was recorded live via Zoom and made entirely under lockdown conditions.
‘Division’ was created by the Radical Makers cohort of 20/21: Tim Bowman, Tina Curtis, Laura Hall, John McMahon, Wendy O’Connor, Tom Shennan, Heidi Robinson, and Daryl Rowlands, with Artistic Director Sarah Thornton and Course Director Aidan Jolly.
Watch “Life During Lockdown”; five short performance films capturing the experience of lockdown in its highs and lows, political pontifications and contradictions, absurdities and solidarities.
Made under lockdown conditions in summer 2020 with the tools available by members of our Radical Makers Emerging Artists Training Programme 2019-20
