Interview with the cast of Fen

As I haven’t been involved in the show, I thought readers may like to hear from the cast themselves. Cast includes first year Drama student Sarah, second years Hannah Putnam, Katharina, Amy and Becca Robson as well as Performing Arts student Alex, and third years Becca Cooper, Hannah Abbott, Jonny and Kirsty as well as their stage manager, Gina.

Q How has this experience been for you?

Amy: Really good
Hannah A: Yeah, it’s good to feel part of a company.

Becca C: Eye opening. I know Caryl Churchill was a varied playwright but I had no idea she was this dark. Tim’s made it a whole lot darker. It’s amazing to see how a director can bring out the potential in a play.

Becca R: Amazing. Acting is something I was considering but wasn’t sure about so this has been amazing to work in a professional company. Tim has been good for setting up a professional atmosphere and expects us to work to a high level. It’s good for me to know how it works and that it’s what I want to do.

Hannah P: Amazing, great to work with people of the industry, costume and sound. I’ve not done a production this big before.

Kirsty: This time round everyone is at rehearsal together so the company are really close.
Even when you’re not in the scene, you’re still in it. It’s like there’s more excitement when something awesome happens.

Gina: This experience has been amazing, it’s helped my develop so many skills and i feel especially proud to be the first student to work on the production side of a collaboration project

Alex: This experience has been a great one for me! I have been so privileged to be a part of it and would like to thank everyone involved for making this so perfect for me!

Katharina: It has been (well, still is :)) a very special experience for me. I didn’t really know what to expect, but the time with the cast has been wonderful. It’s such a great chance to perform at a theatre like Curve, which keeps you motivated to do your best. It has been very challenging as well, you get pushed to your boundaries and beyond, but it helps you to improve. And we had a lot of fun as well!

Q What have you gained from this experience?

Becca C: Acting experience. It’s so demanding – so many things I have to do with little lines. Also the friends I’ve made and the sense of community has been really lovely.

Sarah: More experience, it’s been more professional than anything else I’ve been in – I was in one other show which was a lot different.

Hannah P: Confidence. Tim isn’t the kind of director who tells you each position, he just gives you the overall idea and it gives you that confidence as an actor.

Kirsty: I’ve learnt to act bigger, I tend to do quite small acting. It was difficult but good to learn.
Hannah P: Pushes you.

Gina: I have gained so much experience working with curve and have developed some great contacts that I know I’ll be using in the future.

Alex: I have gained so much from this experience. Coming from the Performing Arts course rather than the Drama course, I started out feeling a lot less confident about my abilities than maybe some of the other performers. However after taking part, I have learnt so much in the way of acting and becoming stronger and more natural, and have made some brilliant friends along the way who I hope to be friends with for a long time!

Katharina: I have learned some new approaches and methods concerning character development, textual work and blocking. Tim is always very interested in little details and reminds us to think about each pause, each full stop. It is brilliant to see how much you can get from the play text! I’ve also gained more confidence in performing in English, as this is still a lot more difficult for me. We all became friends throughout the rehearsals and I’m sure we’ll keep in contact after the show.

Jonny: A massive boost in confidence. I have a bigger swagger in me step. I’ve liked learning different styles of acting, I feel extremely lucky to have been given these opportunities.

Q How does this compare to previous years?

Becca C: Greek pushed me physically, as in my physical boundaries but this has pushed me emotionally. Two different experiences with two very different directors. Adele brought out the style of the play whereas Tim works on emotions of characters.

Becca R: I didn’t even know this was a thing. I saw Laramie last year and thought Holy Bananas, was blown away by the standard of the performance and asked the cast how to get involved. Jonny and Kirsty told me to look out for the e mail from Roger at the beginning of the year and here I am!

Alex: I did not take part in last year’s production, although I went to see it and loved it! I have found that this year has been the perfect one for me to start on and I hope to continue this into the next year!

Katharina: I didn’t know that there was the possibility to take part in the show last year – I didn’t get any information about it. I would have been to scared to audition anyway I guess, as I just moved to England last year.

Q Do you feel this would help towards a career in acting?

Amy: Yeah, I’ve wanted it more since doing this.
Hannah: Good for lecturers to see you act

Amy: What you do at uni is …weird so it’s good to do real acting.

Becca C: Working in professional environement is different from uni, being directed is much more satisfying to the devising we do in class. I’m hoping to do an MA in acting.

Gina: This project has shown me that i do want to be a stage manager in the future, i know that i want to be taking a MA in a few years and i believe this will help me gain a place on a prestigious course.

Alex: Absolutely! As a Performing Arts student, I learn more about contemporary styles of performance, so to add one more string to my bow is always helpful!

Katharina: I do hope so – you need as much experience as you can get. It’s good to be able to provide some evidence of what shows you have been involved with.

Jonny: Because of the first experience I had with Greek, it encouraged me to persue acting and get involved with Off the Fence. Infact, a Leicestershire theatre group saw me in Greek and took me to Edinburgh.

Q How does this compare to other shows you have done?

Hannah A: This is more relaxed, some directors can be impatient

Amy: But you still get stuff done

Becca R: It was interesting to work with my local drama club where the cast were quite adult so this is interesting because of the younger cast, it’s a different dynamic. I prefer this because its more professional, the community feel is down to Tim having everyone here, I reckon Fen will always have a special place in my heart.

Gina: I’ve always been interested in stage management and my friends encouraged me to go for this role. To be honest I didn’t expect to be the official stage manager, I thought I’d be an assistant so I was very surprised.

Alex: Without a doubt the best show I’ve done! I have enjoyed every second, and would like to thank everyone involved for this experience, and hope everybody enjoys the show!!

Katharina: It’s really different from everything I have done before, simply because this is probably the biggest live performance I have ever been involved in. It’s the first time I have worked with a professional director, which makes such a big difference. It’s so good to have someone to tell you if you’re doing a good or a bad job and who can instruct you. It’s also very different, as we’re all almost on stage all the time. It’s also great to see that everyone is fully committed, so it truly feels like a collaborative group work!

Jonny: I was in last year’s Curve Community production of Oliver! And I found these DMU Collaborations to be more professional, you’re held to a higher standard. Whilst this is a great opportunity for us we are held to these responsibilities to give you experience of being a professional actor, we are working under Curve’s name so we don’t want to show them up!

Reflections on GAME FACE

Finally, after months of title changing, structure changing and script polishing, Curve Young Company’s Young Production group were finally ready to show the world their Game Face.

by Young Marketing Forum member, Priya

Inspired by the Olympic values of respect, excellence, friendship, courage, determination and equality, and carrying the official Inspire mark of London 2012, Game Face explores the luck element of life, the quest of the underdog and the fate of the fallen star. The story follows a group of reporters trying to get an Olympic scoop but who don’t anticipate exactly how hard it will be to attain. Eventually, they’re drawn into the real life stores that emerge along their quest.

We’ve all read the press release and the information about the show on Curve’s website, all of which have basically said what I’ve just told you above. However, what does it all mean? That’s something that I couldn’t really get my head around when I was working with the Young Marketing Forum to promote the show. Was it going to be funny? Was it going to be serious? Was I going to have to opt to wear my waterproof mascara instead of my regular one? I really had no idea. Obviously I knew enough about the show to promote it, otherwise I’d be a bit of a rubbish marketer, but I was still in the dark about exactly what to expect from the show itself. In short, I wasn’t sure how the Young Productions were going to bring the Olympic values to life.

However, all the worrying was for nothing and they did such a great job with Game Face. It was performed in The Studio, which I think made the stories have more of an impact on the audience. For example, the lady next to me went from roaring with laughter one minute, to dabbing her eyes with a hanky the next. I just don’t think that would have happened if it was staged in The Theatre. I also really liked the fact that the seats were unassigned, so me, my mum and my sister managed to get some seriously enviable seats. “Best seats in the house” my mum said, and she was right. Another little detail that I noticed as soon as I walked in was the projector that was set up to play interviews with the great people of Leicester (I’m assuming) about the Olympics coming to London. Although, there were some strange responses in the mix, but they did make everyone giggle.

The show itself started with the members of the Young Productions running on stage, which was so loud that it kind of startled me. I think that had something to do with the fact that I was talking to the lady sitting next to me – the one with the hanky – about David Beckham and the Olympic football team.

One thing about the show that I really liked was the way that it was staged; it was so versatile and flowed really well if that makes sense. I’m so glad that the Young Productions decided to set the show in Leicester because it was nice to see their take on Leicester locals’ mannerisms and on well-loved places such as Leicester market.

In terms of performances, overall I think the group were so good and that they all worked extremely well together. The performers that stood out for me though were the guy who played the Scottish journalist because, I don’t know if he’s actually Scottish, but he did an amazing accent – and it was consistent! I also really liked the poor guy, who had me and my sister in hysterics all the way home. He was jokes! Oh, and how talented was the girl who was playing the piano (amongst other things). What a voice! To be perfectly honest, I could probably identify something I liked about most of the performers because they were really good and we were super impressed, yapping about the show all the way home.

It was fantastic to see just how much Game Face had developed from its origins as two separate plays with two separate titles. I’m so glad the group decided to work together instead of as the ‘younger’ and ‘older’ group, as I really feel that all the performers in the group complemented each other well.

I can’t believe it’s all done and dusted, it’s bittersweet really. Before I round off this post, I just want to say a massive thank you to Lucy and Krupa for all their advice and guidance for the Young Marketing Forum this year. We hope we did you both (and everyone else involved) proud.

Good luck to all the Curve Young Company members with whatever they go on to do. Next year’s Curve Young Company have a tough act to follow, that’s for sure!

The final stages of rehearsals for GAME FACE

Olivia Mae Foong is a member of Curve Young Productions and currently in rehearsals for the Curve Young Company show GAME FACE (5-7 July).

Missed me?

Incredibly sorry about the lack of updates.  As many of you are aware, exam period has just finished and I could not be any more relieved.

However, all of that couldn’t keep me away from you for long. Despite all the exams that our company have taken these past few weeks, rehearsals have been equally intense. With not long until technical week, we started our run throughs a few weeks ago and things are definitely looking good.

Let me fill you in on a few things that our company has been up to:

Photo by Hollis Photography

Our amazing band of Milly, Rae, George and Prash performed at the National Tourism Awards across the road at The Athena to represent the Curve. It was a 1930’s themed evening and they had to wear clothes from that era (Milly even had rollers in during the rehearsal beforehand). They impressed an audience of over 500 guests with a selected few pieces from Game Face and we couldn’t be more proud of them.We have a teaser for the show on Youtube – Check it out here and share it with your friends and family. It’s also being played everyday up until the show on the big screen in town!

We also have some more photos of us on the Curve Young Company Facebook page, some rehearsal photos this time from the amazing Emma Kesterton. I’ve had a few people ask me what we’re doing in some of them, but it’s gotten to this point where I’m not sure what I’m allowed to tell you or not! You’ll just have to come to see the show yourself.

Remember me telling you about how our company has gone newspaper crazy? Well today our Curve Young Technicians spent the day fireproofing around 600 sheets of newspaper for the show. Standard procedure for the Curve Young Company…

With technical week fast approaching, I’ll try my best to keep you all more updated!

Is determination everything?

This month has been especially busy for the Digital and Online Team of the Young Marketing Forum, as this month we have prepared, cast and produced a trailer for the Curve Young production Game Face, assisting us with this task is aspiring photographer Briony Latter who helps us to bring our vision to life.

Online and Digital Team- Ricky and Victoria with Briony Latter. Photo courtesy of Jamil Teja. 

The concept for the trailer, was conceived from an inspiration image featuring a teenage girl holding a quote from author E.B. White, the initial quote did not fit the direction we were looking to pursue, but the expression, mood and feelings that the picture evoked were striking to members of the Marketing Forum, from this stimuli we wanted to create something that was simple, but allowed viewers to engage and recall relevant thoughts based on the questions we were asking – I guess you could say that the finished product, was designed to allow us all to interpret the questions in our own way, as after all we all see the world in a different way.

Does everyone have the same opportunities? Photo courtesy of Briony Latter. 

From the initial concept, we were able to meet the cast who I have to say were great fun to work with, so after watching short extracts from the rehearsals it was time to make a difficult decision, which members of the Young Company would represent the final 8 Olympic values that we wanted to show? We wanted to show the personalities of the Young Company, whilst still retaining the key values which we were trying to convey. And I have to say the list was changing right up until the final 8 were told that they would be featured in the campaign.

After casting was complete we had to finalise the 8 themes, and also the order we wanted to present them, one key thing to note here is that although some elements were planned, we wanted to keep it relaxed; but not too relaxed that it was chaos ;-).

Is determination everything? Photo courtesy of Briony Latter. 

Throughout our meetings Briony was able to see our thought process and also provide us with a technical prospective, we wanted our actors to convey the Olympic values through their screen time, and give the audience an opportunity to think about how the questions affect them in their everyday lives, and allow many different interpretations.

On the 8th May we agreed the layout, our young actors arrived- and then the transition from paper to reality began. We started by briefing the cast, and giving them an idea of the shots we wanted, as the video was reliant on still images, it was imperative that each shot was consistent with the previous, and blended seamlessly into the next, the shoot lasted just over 1 hour, and in that time over 600 still images were taken.

Between the main title shot, we wanted to add images of inspiration both from rehearsals, so that the audience can see the development of the piece. And also inspirational and metaphorical references, I cannot tell you specifically what each picture means, as that is for you to decide.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCBMRVblHOM%5D

I am glad that as a team, we were able to explore some of the values we were trying to convey, mostly that success starts with opportunity as the Communications Team at Curve, placed a lot of trust in us to create this teaser and gave us an opportunity to shine, but opportunity alone does not equal success, you have to work hard to achieve your goals and above all enjoy the journey.

On your marks… Get set… GO!

Curve Young Company presents
GAME FACE

Inspired by the Olympic values of respect, excellence, friendship, courage, determination and equality and carrying the official Inspire mark of London 2012, The story follows a group of reporters desperate to get an Olympic scoop, but the task proves harder than they first thought and they become drawn into the real stories that emerge.

This bold and original piece has been devised by a group of 29 young people in Leicester, under the guidance of the professional creative team at Curve. The young productions members (aged 12-26) have explored what the Games mean to the country, to Leicester and to individuals. The company have taken real-life stories framed in their ideas to create a fresh piece of drama for Curve’s Studio.

Follow our intrepid reporters searching for their next scoop as they uncover the true meaning of the Olympics. Game Face explores real-life stories through humour, physical theatre and on stage live music composed for the show by members of the company.

CYC Game Face rehearsals: music, photos and more scenes blocked

Olivia gives an update on this week’s Game Face rehearsals

Remember what I said last week about us having so much more? Well, another scene was blocked tonight! There’s nothing greater than it being 9:15pm and the whole ensemble performing a very emotional scene, with no major mistakes, which we’ve spent two rehearsals working on.

The company has been newspaper crazy for the past few days in rehearsals. I can guarantee that if you handed a cast member of Game Face a sheet of newspaper, they’ll either triumphantly start making some origami or break down in sheer confusion.

We also had a cast photo shoot today. It’s not easy to fit a twenty-odd cast into one photo, let me tell you, but from what I’ve seen, the photos are looking really good! Special thanks to Ricky, Vicky and the Marketing Forum for creating that!

Curve Young Productions, photo by Briony Latter

Perhaps the main highlight of the evening was the preview of the Game Face band’s music. We had a taste of Milly Bianchini’s musical genius last year in 3am and she’s back with some absolutely amazing new work. Such a beautiful piece we’ve listened to and I can say, on behalf of the cast, that we all feel truly honoured to be working with such talented musicians.

Even if you don’t like theatre, which would be odd as to why you’re reading this in the first place, I’d still say that you should get tickets just to hear the great music.

But if you are one of the sane people that have already bought their ticket, you should go and join the Facebook event page and jump in all the talk on Twitter using the hash tag #CYCGameFace

Game Face – early rehearsals

You know what’s great about falling flat on your face? Nothing really. But after that happens to you, nothing else can really go wrong.

If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, it’s because someone, namely me, got a bit too adventurous in today’s rehearsal when performing lifts for Game Face ’s opening scene and my first try of the evening went horribly wrong and ended up with me face down in Rehearsal Room 3. I don’t want to give too much away, but if you heard loud banging, shouting, screaming, a bit of ambient music and the occasional shout of pain; it was probably Curve Young Productions.

Today’s rehearsal was great though. With the actors, technicians and marketing team coming tgether, there’s definitely a strong sense of Curve Young Company in the building. It’s amazing to see short scenes and exercises that we’ve been working on since October, where we’d wonder “Why are we doing this? What’s our director up to?!” suddenly turn into a piece of theatre and guess what? We still have so much more to go.

I know this is the first rehearsal blog post for Game Face, but I won’t get into too many details (just yet!) on what it’s about. Check the website yourself. Whilst you’re at it, you can book your tickets for the show too!

Curve Young Company’s 2012 Show – What’s Going On?

I’ve lost count of just how many Young Marketing Forum (YMF) meetings the forum has had, but it was only during the last meeting that we finally found out some details about Curve Young Company’s new spring/summer production. However, due to the fact that it’s a devised piece, these details could change by the time the forum meets again. For those of you who aren’t familiar with or can’t remember what devised theatre is, let me explain.

Devised theatre is a form of theatre where the show’s script originates from the collaborative work by a group of people. It can be the performers themselves, as was the case with ‘Hotel Paradiso‘ by Familie Floz, but it doesn’t have to be. It is my understanding that the Young Productions group are coming up with the ideas for the stories, but an up-and-coming scriptwriter is going to piece them all together into one coherent show. I think that’s right, although don’t hold me to it!

On the one hand it’s exciting because you’re kept on your toes, but on the other hand it’s difficult – for the YMF, especially – to know just what to communicate to the public. The reason for this is because it has to be vague enough so there’s room to make any necessary changes to the show, but clear enough to give the public an idea of what the show is going to be about/like.

I have some experience with this type of theatre because a very long time ago, when I was in secondary school in London, I took part in something similar. I initially only participated because of my friends, but I am so glad I did because I picked up a load of transferable skills that have come in quite handy whilst I’ve been working with the forum. Basically, what we had to do was to ultimately devise a show to be staged at Ilford Town Hall. I remember feeling quite overwhelmed because I was involved with scripting the show, naming the show, getting sponsorship for the show and marketing the show – which was the most challenging aspect because, like I previously said, it’s difficult to know what to tell potential sponsors about the show and what information to put on the marketing materials for the show when it’s continually changing.

The details that I know so far, and am allowed to tell you about, are;

  • Initially the show was going to be a double-bill, with the group splitting into two depending on their age, but it has now been decided that both groups are going to work together to produce one fantastic show. I think the forum is happy with this decision because it means that we now only have to think about marketing one show, as opposed to two.
  • It looks like the show is going to be inspired by London 2012 and the themes from the Olympics are going to be incorporated into the stories. I think that’s an excellent idea because it will provide some structure to the show and it’s capitalising on something that’s only going to grow in popularity – London 2012. However, as opposed to being purely sports-orientated, I think the show it going to be more rooted in real-life and the audience are going to be able to identify with the core meanings behind each story. Does that make sense?
  • Presently, the show is going to tell a number of different stories that tie-in with the themes of London 2012. These shows are probably going to be told using a variety of different approaches, including; dance, interviews, physical, monologue, etc. That’s the element that I am most looking forward to seeing, in addition to finding out what the tone of the show will be. Will it be comedy, inspiration, emotive, all three? Only time will tell!

I think those are the main points to mention in relation to the impending Curve Young Company’s Spring/Summer show, although if there are any others I am sure one of my fellow forum members will write about them and fill in the gaps.

The challenge for the Young Marketing Forum, in my opinion, is the communication of the show to the public. As I previously mentioned, due to the nature of devised theatre, we can’t be too specific about what the show is going to be about or be like because it could all change – especially as the show is in its improvisational stage – yet, we can’t be too vague because we want to convey a sense of what the show will have in store. In addition, this is something that we immediately need to think about and pin down because we need to create a title-treatment for Curve’s website, alongside details about the show. However, once we’ve all decided on this, everything will be set in motion such as the title-treatment can be produced, the leaflets can be designed and printed and we can all breathe a little easier!

I don’t think there’s much more to add, but the forum will definitely keep you up to date with the gossip in relation the new show.

Until next time,

Priya

Young Marketing Forum Meeting: 24/11/11 (Priya)

Last week we attended our third (I could be wrong, so don’t hold me to that!) Young Marketing Forum meeting. I think it was probably the most interesting meeting we’ve had so far, even though I was unusually quite thanks to the pressures of being in final year at university.

Before I go any further let me tell you a bit about the Curve Young Company – Young Marketing Forum. Basically, the Communications team pick our brains about what our opinions are regarding different communications activities that they are currently undertaking and proposing to undertake at Curve, Leicester. Does that make sense? Eventually we will all be able to get our hands ‘dirty’, so to speak, and get involved in an actual marketing campaign. That’s what we’re about, in a nut shell!

So, now that I have bought you up to speed (I hope), let’s talk about last Thursday’s Young Marketing Forum meeting. In the meeting we were brainstorming about what the best ways would be to reach audiences and to inform them about several of the productions being held at Curve. The productions that were under discussion were ‘Gypsy’ and ‘Hotel Paradiso’, after which we discussed other productions that individual members were looking forward to seeing. For example, I am sure someone was talking about wanting to see ‘The Butterfly Lion’ (Chris, I think that was you!).

I really like the fact that the Communications team at Curve are so open to the ideas that we come up with and that they generally take our suggestions on board. What I’m looking forward to doing the most, apart from seeing how the Communications team work our suggestions into their communications activities, is actually working on a real marketing campaign. I think this is because I come from a creative background and I have studied a variety of marketing modules whilst studying Business Studies at De Montfort University, so naturally the idea of working on a campaign is going to appeal to me. It will be good to see how the skills and knowledge I’ve developed whilst studying at DMU translate, if at all, into a real marketing environment.

The only ‘negative’ (I say ‘negative’ because it’s not really a negative) about the meeting on Thursday was that I think when we discuss things in small groups and then come together as a big group, it’s more effective because it increases the engagement of the whole group and it gives everyone a chance to contribute in some way. Although, that is just my opinion!

Anyway, I am going to have to love you and leave you now. Our next meeting is on Thursday 8th December 2011 (OMG it’s already Decemeber!!!) and, if I’m not mistaken, somebody else will be writing a post about it.

So, until the next time!

Priya
