Platform 1 – DIY Theatre Company

Directed by Sue Caudle & Jenny Harris

Performed at The Lowry Theatre, Salford

Platform 1 is a fusion of music and theatre – where we explore what music means to us, what it says about us and how it makes us feel. Music helps us to escape to another place. We listen to music so that we may remember and also forget. This new show combines drama with video and live music as well as an original score and soundtrack. I worked with the group using art in the devising process. The design for the set grew out of these sessions.

This was the second time I had worked with DIY. Strange Capers was performed at the Lowry in 2005 was a sell-out success and we are very excited to be back.
