Profile Information

What I do:
I'm a Swansea based performer.
A little more about me:
I create performances, theatrical experiences and events which aim to entertain, question and confuse in equal measure, ranging from street theatre and interactive happenings to pervasive games and full scale productions.

I’m currently enrolled on a Mphil at Swansea Metropolitan University developing my practice as a solo performer and experience maker, investigating the willingness of audiences to participate in and take creative control in public performances. My research focuses on Henri Lefebvre’s work on the production of social space but I've also got a soft spot for the work and ideas of Jerzy Grotowski.

I'll begin posting and blogging images and thoughts on my developing practice here in the coming weeks.
Location:
Swansea
Projects I’m working on:
___

Troubles

A theatrical work that loos at the British Governments use of the 5 Techniques Northen Ireland, with a focus the European Court of Human Rights decision that the 5 techniques do not amount to 'torture'. My family are from Northern Ireland, so firstly I feel a particular draw on a personal level through the incidents witnessed by my family through the civil wars. I am also concerned about the experience of those who were treated unjustly as the enemy during the troubles and the repercussions the use of the 5 techniques have for those on the mainland; how do we feel about these methods being used during a resent civil war? Should these incidents be forgotten about, or those in responsible held to account? By hiding our scars do we end up inflicting more injury?
What suffering are we prepared to endure/inflict to ensure autonomy/unity?

Hello friend! Thanks for taking the (imagined) pressure off ;)
See you Sunday!
At 8:59 on May 16, 2010, Leona Jones said…
Good to hear you might be visiting Cardiff, Stephen. Let me know details. And we're definitely organising another open air reading - I'll let you know when the date's sorted, but it'll be in June. All the best Leona

On 4 September we have a visiting artist coming to do a presentation and have a chat with us all at national theatre wales. She is going to be coming to the Sandpit the night before so we would like to give you guys, who are making games for the Sandpit, the chance to also meet and talk to her with us. She is called Naomi Alderman and is a writer. She is interested in sharing her way of working and in learning others' processes, possibly so she can bring 'pervasiveness' into her work. It would be great if you could make it. The talk will be for 2 hours from 11.30am - 1.30pm.

Please can you let me know if you are able to make it? x

Hi Steve - Hope all is well with you.

I assume you got the message about Barnardo's from Matt

Keep in touch - and tell Sian to get in touch with me about paying her for the Van etc.

Yep, NTW offices - see you there!

Great! How's 12 noon on Friday the 14th?
At 11:25 on July 28, 2009, Catherine Paskell said…
Great, can you please send me your email address and phone number so I can give to hide and seek to liaise direct with you and arrange development time? Or on second thoughts, if you browse Holly Gramazio on this social network, she's the one who you will need to give these details to, she will be doing the development with you, so probably best to go to her direct x
At 17:49 on July 27, 2009, Catherine Paskell said…
Hiya, would you guys be around round about the first week of August or second week to discuss game development for the cardiff Sandpit on 3 September? We are trying to organise getting you together with Alex and Holly from Hide and Seek x
At 15:51 on July 13, 2009, Catherine Paskell said…
I will forward your info on to Rosie at Hide and Seek - I'm sure setting up 2 'storyboards' will be okay but we don't know yet if the Sandpit will be in Cardiff, it depends on who wants to deliver games at it! Developing a new game for September means that you would have to meet with us at NTW and Alex or Holly from Hide and Seek to start developing the game. Alex and Holly are giving us a total of 3 days between them to help with development, dates TBC. Of course, since Sandpit is to try out games, it may be that we actually need little more than a 'scratch' of an idea. I will see what Rosie says! x
At 12:31 on July 13, 2009, Catherine Paskell said…
Hiya Thanks for your message, really glad you enjoyed Sandpit! Great you want to run your Swansea project at Sandpit, thats fine, but do you also fancy devising a new game for it in conjunction with Hide and Seek? We are looking for some Welsh artists to devise a brand new game with Hide and Seek which could become a full production in National Theatre Wales' first production year. Let me know if you're interested in this too x
