News: Exiles

Exiles Thursd313Exiles Thursd289A new multi layered, technically delicate project  funded by the BBC Performing Arts Fund had its pilot launch at London South Bank University . 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.
