So imagine my delight when Adrian Bossey at The Performance Centre said lets have a chat and see what we could do in the next year, over a cup of tea ( the only way to be really creative) he suggested applying for an AMATA (Academy of Music and Theatre Arts) residency.
I live about 2-3 miles away from The Performance Centre, it is a possible reality and we have just heard that:
Shallal are booked into Studio C from .
The joy of working in the space and having the time to explore and invite in guests and friends to "play" with us.
The impulse behind the residency is to continue to explore and expand Always New our new Open Improvisation performance technique with George Bradley-Peer, and when we explore the same idea with recorded music I had the thought yesterday that we will go back to a theme we have only looked at then left of Landscapes - by providing a musical landscape /stimulus for when we haven't live music!! Oh fun can't wait....
In scope and scale, The Performance Centre on our Penryn Campus ranks as one of the most sophisticated facilities of its kind in Europe.
Physically, it is a £19m assembly of 11 high specification performance and rehearsal studios, 12 practice rooms, an analogue and digital recording studio complex, seminar, exhibition and display spaces.
Whatever your chosen discipline, The Performance Centre encourages innovative collaborations across all our subject areas. It is a creative hub for students as well as local, national and international companies and practitioners for performance, rehearsal and devising.
But it's not simply a venue. It is a collaboration of world-class thinkers and practitioners dedicated to delivering our innovative degree programmes in music, theatre, dance, and cultural management and production, alongside a performance-based public programme.
