The second piece saw us setting the stage for a live creation, featuring Emma in five different character guises; from the childish schoolgirl to eccentric Frenchman exploring their contrasting treatment of the canvas and the different sound worlds which developed. Here is a character who proved to be very popular on the night!
After finishing late on Wednesday night we just had time to crack open a celebratory bottle of prosecco backstage before heading to mingle with the audience and supporters who had come! What a fantastic night and wonderful to see so many friendly faces there too!
On Thursday we treated ourselves to a cultural outing to Sadlers Wells where the short run of Sutra had caught our attention. It was an incredibly captivating performance, featuring monks from the Shaolin Temple, with a set by Anthony Gormley and music composed by Szymon Brzoska. It was so exciting to see a performance of such imagination and skill, the unity of the monks and the way in which they worked with the set made up of 21 wooden boxes was incredibly engaging and at times breathtaking.
