Matt and Matthew are making a show about being a man. Getting dressed, getting to know each other, getting aggressive.  Talking, touching, rough-and-tumbling.

The Conversation
Lauren Burch

This piece seeks to challenge the audience’s preconceptions of the word ‘rape’. The aim of the piece is to create a safe space where people feel comfortable to discuss rape instead of feeling alienated from the rape victim on stage. This is a text-based piece which intends on building a relationship with the audience before tackling the somewhat ‘gritty’ subject of rape. Currently, this piece is framed in the setting of a first date between audience and performer, therefore it is quite personal and light-hearted but also driven by Lauren’s personal vulnerability through secret-telling and failure.

They’re pretty special. They give a person the opportunity to express themselves. They can be read. They can be heard. They can be spoken. They allow us to communicate with one another. I was always told; it’s not what you say, but how you say it, but is that true?

Charlotte Blackburn

I have been writing to Edgar Garcia a death row inmate for four and a half years. We communicate through letters, and it is from these letters that we have been able to build such an incredible friendship.  I talk to my audience about the notion of communication through letters and what that actually means to me and Edgar. I give some background information to his situation in prison and read them a letter, ending by inviting my audience to write their own letters with the pens, envelops and paper that I put on their chairs before they come in.
