To tell a story

We’re very excited to announce that we are about to begin work on a new collaboration with Sonia Sabri Company to develop a new touring performance piece for 2017. The show, a co-production with The Old Rep and mac Birmingham, will be an exciting combination of contemporary Kathak and new technologies and will tour nationally after opening in March at mac in Birmingham. Ever keen to develop and grow new collaborations, we’re also excited to announce that we’ll be joined by Dan Hett as Associate Artist on the project.

This month we are lucky to be travelling all over, meeting new friends and playmates, checking out festivals and events and sharing the work we’ve been doing on the Random String Fellowship programme. We started in October with Dom & Susan making a flying visit to Amsterdam to check out the MediaLab at Cinekid.

Nov 9-13th, Susan & Paul will be heading north of the border to the NEoN Festival and Symposium in Dundee Nov 10-11th, Anne will be in Manchester for the Crafts Council Make:Shift innovation conference building our networks and looking at how we can get contemporary crafts better represented at Random String next year Nov 18th, Dom & Anne will be taking the RS Fellows down to Bristol to host a lunchtime talk at Pervasive Media Studio and catch up with our friends at Knowle West Media Centre If you are coming along to any of the above, please do drop us a line on us@ludicrooms.com or @ludicrooms in all the usual places.
