In 2017 we became associate artists with the New Work Department at the National Theatre Studio. This was to explore ideas around a project that we had tried to get off the ground some years previously about the conscientious objectors community of Holton cum Beckering. With Damon Albarn offering his support we developed a range of large scale community touring models with Rufus Norris that embraced the ethos shown by the national theatres of Wales and Scotland in moving work out of the capital.
As part of this we worked with Ian Sharp to provide assistance for a show at the Broadbent Theatre that was hoping to be a launch pad for the larger project.
Unfortunately the larger project never came to fruition, as we explain here.
