Fourth Monkey’s Steve Green discusses Project Colony

18th April 2013



Ella Parry-Davies meets the artistic director of theatre company and training institution Fourth Monkey, along with performers Lauren Young, Abbey Gorton and Euan Forsyth. The company’s latest production, Project Colony, is an immersive, site-sensitive response to Franz Kafka’s In the Penal Colony in London’s Docklands, devised by a 45-strong cast. The group discuss their devising process and the rewards of working in a site that can become a character in its own right. Recorded at Trinity Buoy Wharf, 16 April 2013.

Sometimes audiences hit back… If you’re going to work in an immersive style, you have to be free – as a performer – to roll with the punches.
