#FestQ: Panel Discussion "Who Wants The Big Stage?" speakers: Tim Etchells & Jamie Eastman as part of the Theatre Makers Summit.
"There’s currently a wealth of smaller-scale performances being created and performed to audiences in Britain in venues of different kinds. There’s also a lack of innovative, devised work with larger casts aimed towards larger scale spaces and audiences. Is this matter of pragmatics or is there a generational, political shift away from larger spaces and larger scale theatricality? Are we witnessing a crisis of confidence and opportunity or a change in ambition and thinking amongst contemporary theatre-makers?"
