Rehearsals are well underway for our documentary production, 'Our Age, Our Stage'. It is being directed by Jill Rezzano (Head of Education at the New Vic Theatre and Co-Investigator on the 'Ages and Stages' project) and acted by an intergenerational group of ten performers. The documentary retells some of the many stories that local people have told us about their experiences at the Vic, their love of theatre, and their own ageing and creativity. As well as live speech, the performance includes audio recordings from our interviews and archival film footage. It will be taken out to four community venues, starting on 2nd July, and performed in the main auditorium at the New Vic Theatre on Wednesday 11th July.
The documentary is verbatim - all the words come from interviews and workshops conducted for the 'Ages and Stages' project. It has been very exciting to watch it all come together over the last few days...
Best of luck to our talented performers!
