As an artist who collaborates with – and sometimes represents – Coney, I travelled to Denmark in April this year, with co-director Tassos Stevens, and theatre producer Roz Wyn, to meet and network with Danish artists. In this blog – originally posted on Coney’s blog – I reflect upon the trip…
In July I spent a day in my hometown, Preston.
I’d been invited to do so by Fuel, as part of their New Theatre In Your Neighbourhood project.
I’m not going to write much about the day here (follow the link below for the full account). Just to say that it felt great to revisit the town where I grew up, and to attempt to look at it with fresh eyes. It was inspiring to be able to dedicate a few hours to imagining what I might make there, without worrying about scale or practicality!
Here’s my account of the day, on Fuel’s NTIYN blog: http://newtheatreiyn.wordpress.com/2013/08/06/artist-mission-ben-pacey-in-preston/
I wanted to share my article It’s Not Feasible, It’s Vital which was published recently on the mid*point website. It’s a continuation of, and a response to, a conversation from an open space event in June 2011.
