BA Festival of Science
Blackfriars Hall, Norwich
2 - 9 September, 2006
This was a short run booked by Jonothan Holloway of Norfolk and Norwich Festival. The context, as part of the BA Festival of Science, which had taken over the town, was great. Lots of people turned up to see the show and gave plenty of positive feedback. This is the largest space the UK version had been performed. This gave us the perfect opportunity to bring out some hard hitting big statistics, like the number of people living with HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa. Somehow the size of this number compared with the UK population (well over a third) made it all the more staggering.
Highlight: One of the best venues yet. A designated performance space, right in the centre of town. It was flooded with natural light and the magnificant end wall provided a grand backdrop for the workbench and globe, a designated performance space in the centre of town.
Lowlight: Seeing hours of work trashed by patrons of the festival all squeezed into the hall for a drinks reception.
Performers:Jess Mackinnon, Jake Oldershaw, Graeme Rose, Jack Trow
Concept: James Yarker
General Manager:Charlotte Martin
Advisory Producer: Nick Sweeting
"A really interesting way to present the statistics we usually manage to ignore." Nicky
"I have been reincarnated as a piece of rice."
"We all live in one room, the same room, it happens to be called Earth."
"Incredibly easy to rethink a lot after this."
"The most emotive and well-executed performance I've ever witnessed. I hope I remember it and it stays in my conscious and with my conscience to encourage action."
"Brilliant, never felt so small!"
"My boss gave everyone 20 minutes off to see this today as she was so impressed. As was I."
