COIL – film and workshop
An immediate hit with critics and audiences, Coil is one of those rare productions: gobsmackingly clever in its execution whilst being funny, warm hearted and deeply resonant.
Blurring the boundaries of theatre and cinema, this innovative new work draws on our collective memories to pay tribute to the glory days of the video store and the communities we made within them. Coil reflects upon the joys, perils and pitfalls of nostalgia, and how we grapple with goodbyes to move on.
Creating new work at the very edge of video technology and live performance, re:group mash theatre and moviemaking together to create ‘live cinema’. Inspired by the highs and lows of pop culture, regroup aim to turn typically comfortable and passive viewing experiences into something immersive, irreverent, and inherently live.
Don’t miss this playful, one-of-a-kind live cinema experience.
Free ‘Live Cinema’ Workshop
Use custom coded video-DJing technology to create an entire film cast from a solo performer. The Coil video design allows one actor to perform multiple characters in their own film. In this workshop the participants will write and perform their own film, playing all the roles. The film will be deconstructed and then put back on stage in the form of a live film. Write a short script, storyboard it, put everything into a spreadsheet and then let the computer program create the show for you. The workshop is open to artists and performers from all backgrounds. No experience necessary, just a love of theatre, film or both.
This free workshop will be led by 1 (or more) members of the collective. Spaces a very limited so book now!
