The Quay Thing (Main Season)
Exeter Quay & Canal (August & September 1998)
The Quay Thing, funded by a £97,410
A4E award in 1998, was the company's first project.
The main season
resulted in the production
of six new performance works and a number of smaller community pieces,
involving over thirty professional practitioners. Performances were
created specifically for a number of sites on and around Exeter's Quayside,
including a large
warehouse (recently the city's Maritime Museum), the working boatyard,
the former Municipal Power Station and the Medieval Exe Bridge.
The project also yielded two digital
video documents and a Studies
in Theatre and Performance Journal Supplement.
Funded by The National Lottery Through The Arts Council of
England, Exeter Arts Council & dB Sound and Lighting.
