Jenkins, Paul

Performance at International Art-Forum, Sofia

Paul Jenkins, one actor, and one documenter received support to go to Sofia to perform in the International Theatre Forum Nov 4-9 2013. They also took the opportunity to network and look for future collaborations, and develop performance methodology.

Following the project, Paul stated:

"This was a performance of a theatre project originally developed in Cardiff under the working title of ‘Impossible You, Impossible Me’ at the International Art Forum in Sofia, Bulgaria. This performance is highly original in form as it combines fixed and flowing performance methodologies to deliver a powerfully live, spontaneous and interactive theatre experience.

The performance was original developed with the support of an ACW R&D grant and performed as a work-in-progress at Sherman Cymru. The support of WAI has enabled the project to be further developed with Bulgarian director Nikolai Giorgiev and the choreographer Petia Yosifova and performed at the week-long festival of alternative theatre in Sofia.

This unique opportunity enabled me to develop my performance methodology, experience the work of some of the foremost practitioners of experimental and interactive theatre in Europe and establish new creative networks."
