A wall for all.
On this day where there seems little to celebrate we are announcing the next stage of our In Souliloquy project. Snout In Souliloquy is a monologue we have shared with artists around the world (#WorldStage) who are then returning their work to us to distribute a collection of their diverse and exciting interpretations.
So, we are here and we are building a wall. Of sorts. Not one to keep anyone out or to imprison ourselves but to connect with each other. It’s a wall on a stage, a digital stage – it’s a wall played by a person who fixes things and believes in the power of art and theatre to connect with people. It’s a wall played by an artist that appreciates the world and their part in it and challenges us to see how we live in a new celebratory light.
In Souliloquy is about connecting through characters and experience across time and giving voices and new understanding to known stories. It also involves connecting to each other now. Digital Theatre reaches new audiences outside a traditional context, it lets us watch in bed, or on a train and experience that one on one connection to each another person through a tiny screen. A soul is speaking to you. Listen.
One of us voted in this American Election. One of us voted in the Brexit referendum. Both of us grieved the outcomes of both. We are so very proud to be producing this next level of In Souliloquy in this context. Now more than ever we need to make good art (hat tip Neil Gaiman) to respond, challenge and connect us to new understandings of each other and the world.
We are theatre people. We make good theatre. We share it and we reach through whatever disconnect people feel. Here, come sit with us.
Let’s build something together, a stage – upon which sits a wall, for all.
Stay tuned for the release of Snout In Souliloquy in the second half of this month!
