There’s Always A Way: Making Theatre in Stranger Spaces
Andrew invites you to throw off your shoes and grab a glass of your favourite tipple, and relax!
Andrew Loretto has facilitated and directed community theatre, professional theatre and theatre for site-specific performances, including founding the Sheffield People’s Theatre, and as Director of Doncaster’s Right Up Our Street and Winchester’s Hat Fair. A few months ago, Andrew was directing a premiere tour of new musical No Horizon by Andy Platt when the show had to be pulled 3 days before opening due to Lockdown. Join to hear his personal experiences on making, curating and staging work in outdoor festival, site-specific and venue-based contexts and consider how this might help us find new ways and changed ways to tell our stories professionally and with students.
