Under the Influence
Tickets £5 booked through The Nightingale
In her book Theatre in Pieces, Anna Furse posts the notion that “theatre can either be the consequence of staging a play, or the culmination of research towards making. The question will arise who writes this other theatre then?” Anna offers an opportunity for audiences to find out more about her work and practice, citing the work of the artist Graeme Miller, currently in residence at the Nightingale. The evening will be of particular interest to theatre and dance practitioners who use text within their practice and performance.
Anna Furse is Professor and Head of Department of Theatre and Performance at Goldsmiths. She sustains an active career as a theatre/performance maker as well as being a published author of creative and critical writing. Her most recent book, Theatre in Pieces – Politics, Poetics and Interdisciplinary Collaboration 1966 – 2010, is the first of a series commissioned by Methuen in which she introduces readers to unconventional performance texts including Graeme Miller’s distinguished A Girl Skipping.
