A new multi layered, technically delicate project funded by the BBC Performing Arts Fund had its pilot launch at London South Bank University October 28,29 & 30th. Home-based performers on Skype & live performers took part in a live show devised and acted by six of the 3rdthought Associates.
The production explored house arrest, being cast-away, the ideas of exiles in Shakespeare ( As You Like It and King Lear) and divided societies (Israel /Palestine, East & West Germany…).
The performance also included dance and song. Exiles was a collaboration involving London Southbank University Department of Health & Social Care & Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. It was made possible by grants from the BBC, United St Saviours Charity, Aubyn Dyer Undertakers and Lord Dennis Stevenson.
