Eleven Places, a Theatre Company comprised of four University of Gloucestershire graduates (Lucy Tyler, Keely O’Shaughnessy, Luke Dean, and Claire Holland), is soon to start a month-long residency at the Meantime project space. As part of the residency, the practitioners are running two workshops, one of which is specifically aimed at students. This workshop will be on the afternoon of 12th December, so if you’re a student with an interest in dramatic writing, mark that date in your diary.
Eleven Places is using its four week residency to construct a piece of theatre—or an installation—that examines the ways that spaces can be reconstituted, distorted, or transformed. The practitioners will investigate the relationship between story and space, and the relationship between practitioner, character, and place, producing a piece of theatre intended for performance within the space. They say:
‘We all understand what our homes mean, and what makes a home your home. But look a little deeper – what exactly is the recipe for belonging? What makes a space inhabitable, public, comfortable, or yours? Do we really belong anywhere? At home? In Cheltenham? In this often comic, thought-provoking production of site-specific work, Eleven places Theatre Company will take you on a journey into your own understanding of space, place, and belonging. Join four characters as they go in search of the recipe for belonging.’
Eleven Places will present their work at Meantime on Saturday January 5th 2013.
