“raw, emotional performances” (Everything Theatre)
Craft Theatre use exhaustion, cognitive neuroscience, sociology and devising techniques to create work that focuses on emotional authenticity and depth – keeping the actor present, and telling stories with integrity. Their devising process is physical, psychological and rigorous, with a final result that is “a gut wrenching pummel to the core base, primal senses of human emotion” (Bargain Theatreland).
“an unforgettable experience that will stay with you” (Bargain Theatreland)
Company members include Kan Bonfils (Miss Saigon and The King and I, West End), Lia Ikkos Serrano (Grimebourne Festival, Arcola Theatre) and Thomas Thoroe (The Borgias, Sky). The production is directed by Rocky Rodriguez Jr, resident artist at the Rag Factory and curator of their theatre program, designed to offer young companies a no-risk performance space. In accordance with Equity guidelines, Craft Theatre intend to pay performers on this production the minimum wage for actors.
