Profile Information

What I do:
Re-Live is Karin Diamond and Alison O'Connor. We are curious, inquisitive folks who love a good story. We create theatre that is true, told by the people who've lived it.
A little more about me:
Established in 2006, passionate that we all have a story to tell and that real-life is more exciting and unbelievable than fiction. We work with non-actors and the best professionals - film-makers, musicians, visual artists to create a great environment for stories to be told in.
Projects I’m working on:
Abandoned Brothers, Chapter June 13th-15th 2012

Big voices and big hearts needed! "When I wake up and the sun is shining, I'm grateful, I'm very, very grateful"

Re-Live are working with military veterans, families and the wider community on Coming Home. As well as the perhaps inevitable stories of loss and grief, the themes emerging are  strength, gratitude, forgiveness, even joy!

 Post-traumatic growth - A deeper appreciation of life that comes from facing some of its darkest moments.... 

This is a bit of work in progress, from one of the veterans who was in the Falklands War, Northern Ireland and Bosnia, reflecting on his gratitude…

I wondered if you could help me. I'm trying to find a group who are working with prisoners or offenders in order for a bit of dissertation work. I wondered whether you knew of anyone or even had anything planned yourselves?

Yes, that would be great. Am pretty much working from home for the next month or so, so just let me know when you're back. Look forward to it.

Hi Alison

Yes i remember and am v sorry to have missed 'Abandoned Brothers' particularly having seen your last production. Nothing came of the theatre company but I'm still very immersed in the field in a research capacity so could make some suggestions about contacts, companies etc but you may have all that info anyway... sad really that there's nothing in Wales, maybe we should do something about that! Anyway if you think it would be useful for me to meet with him and have a chat then I'd be very happy to.

Hi Alison

Sorry not to catch you after the show on Friday. Was absolutely blown away by it - such brave and candid individuals. I hope the show gets another life. Congratulations to you all.

Would love to catch up with you soon. Let me know if you're about for a coffee or something.
