Single Shoe | Week One
Single Shoe was invited to take part in the artist residency programme at Eden Arts for a couple of weeks.
We are two theatre makers who combine visual storytelling, physical comedy and a love for the absurd to create theatrical experiences that challenge boundaries, break down walls and explore the connections that hold us together.
After a very warm welcome by Adrian, Maeve and Reg the doggy, we have taken over the engine bay here at Eden Arts where we are working on the initial development of a new show. A Wall Between Us - working title - looks at what we give up when we strive to belong to a place. It is a show about realising that no matter where we come from, we share more similarities than differences.
R&D – Week 1:
During this first week we have been joined by video designers Simon Wainwright and David Callanan. We played with video projections, looking into shadows, silhouettes, green screens, 2D, 3D, perspectives and everything in between to find the language of the piece. It’s been a great week of useful findings and we can’t wait for the next week when we will be working on the dramaturgy of the piece.
Here are some snapshots of the work so far…
