Storm.3: Together and alone

Allbwn ymchwil: Ffurf annhestunolPerfformiad


‘Storm.3: Together and alone’ realised a propositional public performance and staging of a series of personal soliloquies drawn from Simone de Beauvoir’s ‘The Ethics of Ambiguity’ – a collection of essays exploring ideas of freedom, personal choice and agency, published within the desolation and optimism that followed WW2, at the birth to the Europe that has followed. The The work was created and presented within a city centre venue in Newport, originally an Odeon cinema of the period, in the weeks leading up to the UK’s first planned date for departure from the EU. The texts were delivered and performed by a cast of eight young local spoken-word artists. Within a staging that reconfigured the public space of the venue through the installation of a 160m2 sloping floor, that provided the event’s audience and performance space – an area littered with 2.5 tons of used and discarded clothing diverted from its journey through local recycling processes. eight local performers and spoken-word artists delivered The third work in the exploratory ’Storm Cycle’ series.

The project built directly on the authors’ research and expertise in located, multi-site and intermedial performance practices, with an initial focus on the approaches and achievements realised within his long-term collaborative relationship with National Theatre Wales (NTW). The work was commissioned and produced by NTW. And was the second of an exploratory series of publicly commissioned works staged within ‘The Storm Cycle’, developed and presented at various scales across Wales, within Brookes’ three year engagement as Associate Artist to the company.

Research questions include:
In what ways might located and context-specific live art practices be engaged to expand and enhance approaches to the large-scale staging of discursive and narrative theatrical material?
In what ways can advanced techniques of alternative performance practice reveal approaches to the staging of additional forms of writing, such as philosophical texts, or newspaper reportage?
How might approaches to spatial design and contemporary media and technology use be employed to support the form and dramaturgy of such stagings, and to enhance an understanding and appreciation of their event for audiences?
In what ways can long-term practice-based research inform and extend the production practices of theatre-making for both professional and public benefit?
