"The 2014 Outreach Project - Fragments".
A three week research and development project led by
Iron Shoes Theatre Company.
At the North Wall Arts Centre, Oxford.
For three weeks during July-August 2014, Johan was working at the North Wall Arts Centre as the project assistant for the 2014 Outreach Project.
The project was led by the British theatre company Iron Shoes, in collaboration with Oliviero Papi (movement), Dom Coyote (music) and Al Smith (writing).
26 young people took part: 19 actors, one musician, two technicians, two designers and two writers.
Together they presented a scratch performance, "Fragment", a blend of songs & stories meditating on love, loss and heartache. The performance was preceded by rehearsed readings of two young student writers’ work, and exhibitions of work created by the design team throughout the project.
As Project Assistant, Johan was assisting the company, and it's collaborators, as well as devising, and performing in, the two public performances that were the result of these three intense weeks.
