A Midsummer Night's Dream at Warwick Arts Centre, June 2008
In late June 2008, Footsbarn Theatre company returned to Warwick Arts Centre, after more than two decades, with Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. The performance took place outside on Tocil Field, in a large circus style tent. Throughout Footsbarn's stay, The CAPITAL Centre archived the production with Research Associate Jonathan Heron recruiting an undergraduate research team. Part of the challenge was to create an alternative set of theatre records, documenting the audience's experience as well as the practitioners' reflections. The information adopts a wide array of formats, from interviews with company members, to drawings by children who attended the peformance.
