Our Show


Our show was developed as part of an AHRC-funded project during 2013. It was performed eight times in 2013. We have no current plans to revive it in that format; but you are welcome to contact any of the team (e.g. whoever is geographically nearest to you!) about the possibility of a one-person demonstration/performance/workshop.
