Learn how plays are made from historical events
Mon 27 February, 6.15pm
Talk presented by StrongBack Productions with Tara Arts
How do visual artists, directors, choreographers, designers, composers bring history to life in performance? When the events are little known, how do we give them authenticity and urgency on stage? Join leading practitioners to find out how they went about animating history in a lively panel discussion chaired by theatre, television and film actor Adjoa Andoh.
