We have a callout for an artist/maker to take part in The Castle Builder on Sat 18 November at the Theatre Royal Margate. It probably sounds like an odd 'opportunity' - to make something during the performance, from wood from a broken chair.
We had this message today from one of the senior producers at Battersea Arts Centre, after seeing the show at Wigan Old Courts, the opening festival. It makes it make sense...
"Chatting to Louise afterwards, she mentioned that Vic (Llewellyn, performer) had described the show to her as a 'mix between a TED talk and a rock concert' - and just in case that isn't something he has mentioned to others I thought I would share that. It's a great description of the show I think. Vic and Ed are speaking really passionately and with great humour about what it is to make things; shows, buildings, toys for their kids, art....and the music is just great.
I found it incredibly inspiring and really moving.
There is a particularly beautiful song which is a dedication to the local maker that is working on stage throughout the show, and is essentially a love song for anyone who makes things. It made me beam and it made me cry."
So, if you are an artist or maker, or know someone who might get a lot from joining us at this performance, please get in touch.
