Roundtable discussing the experimental Sprint festival
3rd March 2011
SPRINT FESTIVAL SPECIAL
Diana Damian talks to Matt Ball, artistic director of Camden People’s Theatre, and Sprint artists Hester Chillingworth (Getinthebackofthevan with External) and Oliver Lamford (Thisnowthis with Anemone) about creating experimental work and the place of audience engagement in contemporary theatre. Recorded in the occasionally noisy foyer of Camden People’s Theatre. More info: www.cptheatre.co.uk/sprint.php.
It’s hard to get your work on because of this expectation that you have to do a three-week run in a theatre building, but many people don’t want to do that.
