The Quay Thing (Main Season)

Full Company

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.
