We asked our audiences at the end of each Workshop Performance to feedback on what they had seen to help us develop the piece for July.
We were truly astounded by the amount of feedback we've received which was both enlightening, constructive and heartening and has given us much food for thought!
Below are some extracts of feedback:
"I really enjoyed many aspects of the piece - particularly the mixed media - the projections and music especially. The boxes used on set were very visually stimulating and the choreography was incredible. However, I feel at some points the message was a little simplified - some of the characters lacked complexity and the projection of the 'inquest' seemed to portray the police and judicial system in an overly neagtive light."
"A great piece of socially aware theatre. The story was presented effectively with continuity - it was well-structured and balanced. We will be back in July!"
"A beautiful performance and a privilege to have seen it. One note - some of the spotlights were overpowering"
"Overall amazing show: well structured, fully thought through and very creative production. Good use of movement - however some could be more polished. Raps were great and thought-provoking and visuals of child's drawing really brought you into the world of mother and son."
"Absolutely brilliant. Everyone interacted with each other really well, moving freely and fluidly. Very moving piece."
"The most powerful performance I have seen. The rawness was so strong making the audience face and evaluate 'truths'. Thank you for sharing this with others."
"Very good performance. The emotions of the mother, father and boy came across very well. However, some of the early dance scenes depicting his happiness as a boy were slightly lacking in depth and some development of this early relationship with his mother would help in creating contrast with him as a young adult."
"The father and son scenes were especially moving. They created just the right dynamic to make you believe in their relationship."
"This was a beautifully crafted, faultless piece of theatre - the visuals/sound effects were stunning and superb, as were the dancers. My problem is with how the judicial system is portrayed. It was very one-sided and led the audience in what to think which wasn't necessary."
"It was beautifully and sensitively executed by a brilliant and talented cast. The storyline and message it carried was strong and meaningful."
"Superb dancing/choreography aided by multi-media and use of set. Narrative sometimes inaudible because of volume. Balance sometimes too much towards the spoken narrative - message came across most emotionally through dance and movement, although there was wonderful acting. Loved it - especially the two male duets."
To have your say, please reply! We'd love to have as much feedback as possible.
