“Colour, gender, visible light, politics, race, sexuality, emotion… Human beings view life via a series of Spectrums. But what happens when we start to look beyond these scopes and panoramas?”. An ensemble of talented artists will devise an intimate piece of theatre that explores how we look at the world.
SPECTRUM is the second work developed by Knock And Run Theatre’s Momentum Project. In 2019 two of Newcastle’s most exciting emerging companies have teamed up with the goal of collaborating to devise an engaging, dynamic and fresh new piece of theatre. This project has been in development since late 2018 when the artistic directors of each company had several brainstorming workshops- resulting in a mission to explore the concept of identity and labels in our society. We were able to assemble an incredibly diverse ensemble of 16 local creatives who, combined, represent a wide demographic of traits including age, race, health, sexuality, gender identity, political stance, and privilege. Together we will devise an innovative, revealing and relevant exploration of humanity which is welcoming, accessible and challenging to our audience.
