We have just completed two Russian Winter development days with the Bristol Old Vic theatre. They were brilliant and have really helped to move the show forwards to its next level. For our first day we worked with their Literary Associate, James Peries. We analysed our live show footage and talked about our wider ambitions for the narrative. On the second day, we added six actors from the final year of the Old Vic drama school into the mix to try out some of our ideas.
It was theatrical input that we lacked when we staged the show last January but now we are now poised to create a genuinely integrated multimedia show. My dream coming to life – how great is that! We can officially say that we are collaborating with the Bristol Old Vic, with a view to putting our next version of the show on with them next autumn/winter. We just need to find some funds to help us on our way…I will write more about our development process soon.
