Ever After: Considering theatre and performance in the new era of COVID-19

Activity: Consultancy


Conceived at the dawn of lockdown, the project is directly situated in the changing landscape of social distancing, spatial reconfigurations and new modes of communication. Bringing together academics and practitioners from National Theatre Wales, Aberystwyth University and UCL’s Institute of Making, Ever After envisions futures for live performance: for theatre-making and theatregoing. A conceptual and design-led project, with real-world implications, it seeks to imagine, develop and propose initiatives in architecture, scenic composition, dramaturgical structures, and performative modes and styles. To develop and produce transferable principles, proposals, prototypes, models and recommendations for new approaches to the practices of theatre and performance within the following six thematic blocks: Assembly, Relationships, Materiality & Design, Space & Architecture, Techniques & Expression, and Production Processes.’
