About the Night
As a company, Barrel Organ try to make work that is self-consciously theatrical; plays with the unique ‘liveness’ that theatre offers as an artform; and continually seeks to explore and deconstruct the relationship between performer and spectator. LIVE was begun as a means of offering a space for artists, companies and makers, who don’t necessarily work solely with new-writing or traditional theatre forms, to test their work in front of an audience.
Previous LIVE evenings saw submissions for work from across the UK. giving emerging, as well as more established, artists and companies space to test up to 20 minutes of material in front of an audience, and alongside work that Barrel Organ will be scratching.
The LIVE night will be going on the road across the UK in November, seeking work from local artists and companies as Barrel Organ tour their show ‘Some People Talk About Violence’.
