Bay 56 Theatre
Went to see the venue on Friday while it was pitch black to see the acoustics at night and make a technical plan for the show. Bringing the show to this totally raw space is thrilling as it means we're not only making the play, we're literally making a theatre, too!!
Got to see our little mini actress Keira Jozana being not so mini anymore for her last bits of recording. She was AMAZING and made me forget all about fascism coming into fashion. This girl slays, BIG TIME. She switches on some serious natural acting skills and *always* brings such joy to her recordings. We now have the final scene audio refined to be exactly what it needs with just the right combination of naivety yet wise-beyond-her-years quality in her voice. And she's 8. HOW?! How is she so good?! Here she is, bossin' it on the recording and signing posters.
Had an awesome meeting with exhibition curator Male Arcucci who is assembling all the work and putting together the concept of the exhibition. She has created a beautifully fluid transition between these varied pieces by 14 fierce artists. We are mirroring the journey of the play, beginning with the early stages of a mental health difficulties, all the way through psychosis to emerge at the possibility of hope and healing. It's going to be a really special part of the whole The Fall experience and we're focusing on making it really intimate. Cannot wait to show you more of this.
