Thank you for replying to my blog post - I'm really interesting in getting involved and should be available from the 19th March. I tried to send an email to the address that you gave me but it says that it's been rejected by the domain?!? so i'll try sending it again but if it doesn't reach you, please let me know some more about the production and how i can get involved - it sounds great.
Looks like we're going to be sharing a creative journey shortly. I'm going to be involved in the Pontardawe Parklife Show with No Fit State - wearing my writer's hat and working alongside Orit and the team. Really looking forward to it. See you there. Peter.
Hi James. I was given you as a contact by Zoe Mills. I'm directing a show for a company in Darlington that involves pirates (rough, tough, girl pirates) and I was really impressed by the work in your incubabator project at WMC. I am particularly interested in the work you did where someone seems to fly only a couple of feet off the floor with a single hand in a strap. This is probably a ridiculous question, but is it possible to create any kind of free-standing structure that is strong and stable enough for someone to use to do this work, or do they have to be suspended from a lighting rig or similar? If you could let me know that would be fantastic, as it then means I can factor this into my thinking during our R and D days on the show next week. Best wishes, Sarah Argent
Thanks for your response to my wooden automota blog, I have just realised I responded to my own comment so it probably didn't get to you! - I am hoping to mechanically animate cut-out legs and arms (life size photographs mounted onto wood)so they move backwards and forwards. They will remain in one place on the stage but gyrate - I can't really describe what I mean but I imagine it will involve a motor and some cogs or pistons. Sorry to be very vague but I am not a technically minded person! Any suggestions would be greatfully received...
I hope you're having a great 2010!
Thanks for accepting me as a friend. I happened to land on your page when I was chatting to Borhan from Contact Theatre.
We are both envloved with the Butetown 'Soul Exchange' production - part of NTW's twelve productions in twelve months for their launch and after cheekily reading your 'Ex-Butetownie' reply (I'm also a Butetown girl)I was interested in the work that you are doing now and if you still have close links with Butetown.
We'll be entering the next phase shortly after running some initial theatre and poetry workshops last month.
If its OK with you, I'd like to drop you a line to let you know where and when we next deliver some activity in Butetown.
Hey James - all wrapped up with the tour now? Or is it ongoing / extended? It really was a fab show. V much looking forward to your next project! And Bridie had some very cool ideas too - everyone's very excited to see where you go from here!
Did you see the launch? Very interesting stuff down there - ooh you can just feel the theatrical expectation in the air at the moment!
James I've just seen that incredible photograph of the set that you've posted up - wow! Very exciting stuff. Think I might be able to make opening night, as it happens. Would be great to see it evolve in performance!
Hiya James, please do bring as many people along as you can! Please can you message me how many people will be in your group? The event is free but ticketed so I need to have an idea of numbers on the day. Thanks! x
