Week 4

30th Jan - 5th Feb

Our final week! It's gone so fast.

Monday and Tuesday were Lily's final days of rehearsal before going into the Vaults for the show! Whooo hooo! So brilliant to get to see all of the technical elements come together.

On Wednesday we had our final open sandwich with Jerome, Marina and Sean from Brainchild. We are going to miss being part of this community of artists. It's amazing how many parallels and bridges there are between disciplines. We had a great discussion about homelessness and some excellent ideas about how maybe to join our contacts and networks together.

On our last Friday we had our final share o'clock, a time where we can all come together and share something we have been working on that week. I played the RnD of Invisible Man to Lily and started to gather some feedback. Matthew joined and we spoke about our dream projects.

Now, in the final days, we are thinking about how we can take this residency idea further and maybe find another space to host us. A month just doesn't feel like enough time and we've learnt a lot about how we could make this idea work on a more permanent basis with many more directors, theatre makers and artists.
