Specific, Responsive or Sympathetic?

PAI have just listened to this and it is very inspiring in a number of ways. Amongst the panel are Punchdrunk Artistic Director, Felix Barrett and Jenny Sealey who was co-director of the London Paralympic Opening Ceremony and who is Artistic Director of Graeae Theatre Company (pronounced grey-eye). Creatively, to listen to these 4 people all of whom are responsible for making theatre in non-theatre buildings and in open spaces, it is just so impelling. Even more so, however, is Sealey’s passion for what she does and what she believes in. A real force of nature! Give it a listen, I implore you! And if you aren’t sure of the difference between site-specific, site-responsive and site-sympathetic theatre, you will be by the end.
