Totally Irrelevant Theatre Company, 2009-2010
The Floor is covered in paper, The paper is covered in questions, Four people stand around in suits, They introduce you to the game, You watch them watch you.
When entering the space the audience are given a set of instructions and a handful of pennies. Free to wander around and participate, the audience are able to sit and watch as the performers pull up their sleeves and begin to gamble with decisions. This theatrical installation piece deals with questions we ask ourselves far too much or perhaps, not enough.
This interactive installation was devised by the company in 2009. After successfully receiving funding, it was re-performed and toured the South West region in 2010. Working alongside organisations including: Arrow, Barefoot and The Barbican Theatre Plymouth.

The River Walkers, 2010
Dart Walks consisted of a series of walks to explore the River Dart and our relationship with it. Each walk had a different Task, focus and form of documentation. The walks were: Pooh Sticks Walk, Hiding walk, Rubbish Walk and Entire Walk. The material gathered was created into an installation to mark the experience and share it with an audience.
The Walks were created to mark the closing of our university, Dartington College of Arts, and its Merging with Falmouth University. Farewell to the Dart. Greetings to the Fal.
