Royal Court Theatre, London
Geraldine took part in the Sharing The Stage Symposium.
"Over the past three years, a group of leading theatre companies and practitioners have been working together to interrogate and question the role of participatory arts practice. Shows were made in prisons, abandoned docks, care homes, favelas, a football stadium, repurposed buildings and alternative spaces across the U.K. Communities shared stories, films were made, blogs uploaded, nights and days of invigorating debate were had with artists, participants and policy makers. Now we’re regrouping and you are invited to be part of what comes next. Hosted and presented by companies from the Sharing the Stage network including: National Theatre of Scotland, Sage Gateshead, Graeae Theatre Company, Contact Theatre Manchester, Synergy Theatre Company, Geraldine Pilgrim, Royal Court Theatre and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation."
This symposium is now fully booked.
