First blog post

In this post I have written a small amount on why I started this blog, and what I want out of it. Also find out more about me!

Business Plan Orbis Theatre: Creative Enterprise

This is the business plan essay I wrote for my addvantage course at Coventry University. I spoke about setting up Orbis Theatre, and what I would need. Here you can also find all my inspiration, including other theatre companies. This was the first initial research I did for Orbis Theatre Company.

Business Matters

Life Mapping This was the very start of our sessions, and proved to be very therapeutic as well as stimulating. There were many things in my life that I had already forgotten about, and it was nice to be prompted to think of songs and small memories I wouldn’t have necessarily remembered normally. It made…

Is Execution Done on Corder?

This is the proposal and the story of our show that Orbis Theatre is putting on. Our first show we are working towards and our debut as a theatre company: Is Execution Done on Corder? Based on a true murder case in 1827 called The Red Barn Murder, the show takes us through the story…

Rehearsals week 1-3

These are the beginnings of our rehearsal process. Our social media Pages had already been running for at least a month, and we were gagging for content. It was very exciting to finally have a full cast, and we thought we had cast it very well. We were still on script at this point, and…

Orbis Theatre Beginnings

I came to the group late as I was planning on being in a different company that fell through. This meant I really needed a group, but actually when I looked at my options it felt silly that I was’nt already in this group. They had a member that changed to another company, and they…

Strategic Arts Planning

The aims for the piece are to demonstrate the different sides of a story that people don’t consider to have happened. To develop multiple characters through the use of multirole and to make the audience think of the crime and punishment system in comparison to nearly 200 years ago and now. We are going to…

C’mon! Performance and feedback

I think that the performance went extremely well. The biggest issue was being slightly out of time at points, but nothing dramatically bad went wrong. The timing issue is something we can play out and is something that was always a risk doing it with nerves added. The bit I mean more than others is…

Live briefs

16/09/19 Meeting theatre absolute. We started with a video of their previous work, and we saw different performances in the shop front. I have seen a few shows there before, and have seen the small yet versatile space that we will be working in. We were asked to get creative with a series of writing…

Outdoors theatre acrobatics progress

I am very much scared of heights, anything I do not feel stable on, including a piggy back. However, I love to have a crack at everything, and I consider myself a very determined person. I have seen this proven in my acro training- for example in session 2 handstands were something I just couldn’t…

1920’s Silent film performance- outdoors theatre

Our first performance (and almost a dress rehearsal) was on 3rd April. This was the first time we had properly taken it outside, and it was interesting to see the new dynamic it created. Of course we had rehearsed in our really small space and all on top of each other, and when walking around…
