View from Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis is a live multimedia production which will seek to speak for the world in a material and emotional sense. The correlation between the performance and process will be evident throughout the final piece and will cut between film, theatre, dance and live music. The production will attempt to address the big questions in life from an analytical yet comical perspective. The work is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
As part of the work, participatory workshops were held at Wysing Arts Centre in April 2017 to explore the role of the chorus within the theatrical construct, and how it relates to the collective and the individual. This three-day workshop will be a collaborative exploration with open discussions, practical group exercises, simple role play and improvisation including singing, acting and audio recording. The aim of these fun and open workshops were to contribute and generate material for the final production.
