On the back of These Trees are Made of Blood (Southwark Playhouse, March 2015) I was approached by producer Sarah Weatherall about an exciting project she is developing with her company We Light Up the House. Day of the Living was a performance-in-progress at Drama Centre on the weekend of 31st October 2015.
Here is our Kickstarter video (we made the target, you can watch it just for info!)
We used Day of the Dead imagery, live music, mask and storytelling to explore the story of contemporary Mexico, taking inspiration from the 43 Disappeared students from Ayozitnapa last September. Unfortunately, this horrific incident is only the tip of the iceberg. For further information about how to get involved at the next stages drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
