Cast documentary, behind the scenes of Through the Magnifying Glass
Our third production, Through the Magnifying Glass, took place in the New Wolsey Theatre’s HEG Space in July 2015.
A full report on the project can be downloaded here.. (Please contact us if you require this in another format).
Through the Magnifying Glass was our first co-production with the New Wolsey Theatre, and part of the Moving Stories Project, which examined notions of belonging as a Deaf or disabled person within the wider community. We were delighted to be involved alongside the other partners, DanceEast and Pacitti Company.
Our audience joined us for tea and cabaret. Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece, Through the Magnifying Glass weaved together the serious, surreal and downright silly, as our journeys and experience inspired a powerful multi-sensory performance. The show was audio described within the script and one performance was BSL-interpreted.
Jenni, Denise and Justin were interviewed by Archant Suffolk for a newspaper feature, and Archant also made this great mini-documentary, featuring clips of the cast in rehearsal:
