A Virtual Night Out at Lancaster Arts
Monday 12 October, 19:30-21:00
Online conversation and activity
Part of our #BreathingSpace programme
Going Out, In is a virtual night out devised by comedian and theatre maker Amy Vreeke and hosted by Lancaster Arts. We are also joined by guest artists David Callanan, Josh Cannon and Rosie Schofield for this final online event in our Catalyst for Conversation series.
What happens when we attempt to virtually recreate the conventional experience of going to the theatre…minus the show itself?
We’ll begin with a discussion about live performance in the current climate before heading into breakout rooms. Here you’ll interact with fellow theatre goers and our guest artists as if you would on a virtual night out. Each room is inspired by the physical spaces of Lancaster Arts’ Box Office, Bar, Foyer…and even the toilets!
Amy will then lead an open ‘post-show’ conversation. Don’t forget to bring a cuppa, or post-show G&T if you fancy!
Amy Vreeke is a theatre-maker, stand up comedian and women’s health advocate based in Manchester. Amy’s unique comic style allows her to talk about the most taboo topics with a charm and frankness that leaves “audiences splitting with laughter” (North Westend). Her latest show The Year my Vagina Tried to Kill Me, originally developed at Lancaster Arts as part of our Foot in the Door programme in 2019, is due to tour for a second time in 2021.
Catalyst for Conversation is a series of online workshops and discussions taking place from May to September. This is an opportunity for artists, industry experts and participants from across the world to exchange ideas and what they know through topics of value to them all. Going Out, In is our final webinar in this series and we hope you can join us.
