What Makes This Performance Space a Successful Theatre; Now, in 1766, Forever?
Tom Morris introduces: Mark A. Howell, BBC praised Action Researcher and Critically Acclaimed Composer/Performer Jenny Lockyer
Mark A. Howell is an Action Researcher, academic and Bristol Old Vic enthusiast who believes his autism helps him to examine and interpret historical evidence differently. His talk will examine how acting and rehearsing 18th century plays inside the actual spaces where they were first performed can provide the most valuable evidence yet for revealing - and reviving - their popularity today.
Bristol Old Vic is just such a space. Built in 1766, its amazing intimacy makes this theatre a truly magical space for telling stories.
“It’s no surprise that actors, writers and directors love to work here.” - Tom Morris, 2009.
Introduced by Tom Morris and with music and performance by Jenny Lockyer, this enlightening - and sometimes controversial - Heritage Talk will present brand new evidence further exploring Tom Morris’s identification of this old theatre’s unique qualities as a performance space.
This talk is suitable for Theatre professionals, students, teachers or anyone with a passion for Bristol Old Vic and its extraordinary reputation for connecting actors and audience in one perfect space.
