Extraordinary Bodies haven’t been able to tour since Covid hit back in March 2020, but we’ve been keeping busy. We have been taking advantage of this wobbly period to immerse ourselves into new exciting digital experiments.
Soon after the first lockdown was announced, we employed artists and creatives to create a short film around “What Am I Worth?” called “What Do You See In Me?”. We worked together all the way through the summer and premiered the piece on September 30th. In October, we live-streamed a screening of the piece followed by a live conversation on YouTube. Viewers shared their thoughts, asked questions around the piece and were answered by the performers and members of the creative team.
In October and November, Signal Fires lit up across the UK with storytellers and audiences sharing in one of the original forms of theatre. The fires signalled the vibrancy of touring theatre, and the threat our industry continues to face. We joined other brilliant organisations in taking part in the initiative led by Headlong by creating our own evening of live-streamed digital performance. Our community of artists shared songs, stories, poems and more and brought our community of viewers some warmth on a crisp Autumn night.
What’s in the works
Since the New Year, we have started working on a new version of our show “What Am I Worth?”, which will combine live performance and digital performance. We are also working on more digital experiments with our circus artists, actors, musicians and young artists. We will announce these new projects soon. Follow us on social media to be the first to find out.
