A Young Woman's Journey Into African Initiation

@ VOL 17 ON OCT 30, 2018

From Walking through the gates of a small initiation school in Botswana,
Joanne Cuthell discovered a world of deep spiritual healing through song, dance and the beating drums.
She discovered a world that allowed her to access her lineage and resolve the past sufferings of the many generations that came before. 
The communities support and the wisdom of the elders allowed the healing to manifest in its fullness. 
She shares images and echoes them with words that allow a unique glimpse into the world of the Sangoma.

Moving Audiences

@ VOL 17 ON OCT 30, 2018

Site specific', 'promenade performance' and 'immersive theatre' are terms liberally sprinkled through arts marketing materials, with varying relationships to the actuality. How about an 'immersive roast potato pop-up experience' anyone? You think Jonathan Eato is joking...

But whether it's the latest show from the internationally acclaimed Punchdrunk theatre company, or a well-known oven chip manufacturer jumping on the bandwagon, there are a number of common questions that experience makers are confronted with. Why are audiences being asked to move around? (aka what's wrong with a comfy theatre seat?) How can we move audiences without resorting to sat-nav type instructions or relying on unpredictable wanderlust? And once audiences are out of their seats, what's the pay off?

Jonathan (sound designer for Hannah Bruce & Company) will attempt to answer some of these questions, and make the case for resonance and reverberation as key tools in the immersive experience.

The 1001 stories of climate change'

@ VOL 17 ON OCT 30, 2018

Catherine Heinemeyer convinces us that stories are one the most valuable natural resources we have in the fight against climate change'. She discusses how folktales and religious stories absorbed early in life form the cognitive building blocks with which we understand complex situations such as climate change, and how collective action to combat it depends on our ability to hear and understand the stories invoked by different 'narrative tribes'.
