Robert Poulter New Model Theatre

Whilst looking at Screen Archive South East and Kent MOMI I discovered this maker.

I am increasingly interested in the strange folk that are involved with magic lanterns, puppets and old toys. They are a breed all on their own. I am drawn to this world as I also

want to be hidden behind the thing I have made.

Its basically how shy people perform infront of an audience but they manage to hide behind the puppet, set or magic lantern. They can be removed from the audience by the equipment.

Theatre company 1927

Paul Barritt is an animation artist and filmmaker who is also co- founder of ‘1927’

This theatre company are using animation as their stage set and the performers interact with the animation. I find this method really interesting and something I would like to try. I also see on their website that they are interested in collaborating and nurturing talent.

I have booked tickets to see their show ‘Roots’ in Janurary 2020 in Brighton.

 

Research questions and information

How has the technology revolution affected human beings cognitive skills and ability to concentrate and contemplate?

“The Net seems to be chipping away my capacity for concentration and contemplation. My mind now expects to take in information the way the Net distributes it: in a swiftly moving stream of particles. Once I was a scuba diver in the sea of words. Now I zip along the surface like a guy on a Jet Ski.” source : (www.scientific american)
