"One of my favourite elements is being able to engage before and after the show, strengthening the connection and bond between audience and artistic work... When it comes to immersive, traveling works, the stage manager ends up taking on the task of audience management way more than is usual. With [the production] LOT X, it felt as though Cohort was akin to an Assistant Stage Manager, doing the work of managing the patrons without direct interaction."  Read more →

The world and the show had a parallel feeling of changing so rapidly daily yet feeling like nothing had changed at all."  Read more →

"This piece was inspired by the COVID restrictions. It was designed for a single audience member, standing in a two-metre radius chalk circle in a public park. The audience member is listening to a track through their earphones, which is synced up with the track playing in my earphones. It’s a solo performance, but also a one-on-one interactive journey of dance, drag, outfits, reveals and surprises all around the parkette. The piece is about two queers meeting each other in a park. It’s 30 minutes long and it’s very intimate."  Read more →
