This new piece of work will be a multi-artform theatre production combining performance, film, animation, visual art and music. It is a poignant, warm and sometimes absurd tale of loneliness, companionship and our instinct to elaborate our own stories. Following its premiere at the Royal Exchange Wresting The Walrus will transfer to both partner venues allowing the work further development, audience and critical reach.
The collective will receive £4,000 and an artistic mentor, plus a year of supported development of the work with paid R&D opportunities at the Royal Exchange and ARC Stockton. They will also receive a budget and support to realise the production in Spring/Summer 2019 along with producing support throughout from the Royal Exchange and the support and guidance of their marketing, development, dramaturgical making and technical departments.
