Firstly, we’d all like to say huge THANK YOU to everyone who came along to our performances of Crossing Dartmoor at the New Diorama Theatre – we really hope you enjoyed the production!
Now that these performances are done, we’re deep in admin-central-aftermath territory. Returning props, considering outcomes, reviewing audience feedback. Most excitingly we get to relive the whole thing without the performance-day jitters through the wonder of online video! Tête à Tête very kindly film all the performances in the festival and it’s always great to be able to look back over a show, as well as have the opportunity to give those who couldn’t be there a glimpse into what it was like. The performance in this video was the first show on Saturday 25 July, and it’s looking great!
And of course, huge thanks, too, to Arts Council England and the National Lottery for funding this performance at the New Diorama Theatre, to Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival, King’s Cross and their Artistic Director Bill Bankes-Jones for their support and encouragement, and to Sound and Music for the Francis Chagrin Award they gave me to help with the costs involved in creating the field recording sections of the work (which haven’t come through very clearly on the video but I’ll be posting the recordings from the show on SoundCloud soon).
