June Newsletter
 
There is a different feel about the office at the moment – and it’s not just because the office has had spring clean (long overdue). All energies are now focused on our upcoming arts and technology conference: TEDxYork.
The theme of the conference is “A New STEAM Age” looking at how to creatively integrate Arts into the traditional Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) collective, delivering a new STEAM age of innovation and creativity. TEDxYork is being held to get people talking and connecting ahead of next years Shift Happens, and as a follow on from the Stronger Together event that was held at Northern Stage recently.

We are welcoming loads of great speakers and delegates to the event and as well as tweeting, blogging and posting till we are red in the face, we shall also be streaming the event live on pilot-theatre.tv.

For more information on TEDxYork or Shift Happens, check out our NEW LOOK website which we launched last month.
 
What Light goes international

In June Pilot took their producton of What Light, by Richard Hurford with Giuditta Mingucci, to festivals in Milan and Dresden.

Milan was hosted by our co-producing partner Elsinor Teatro and Dresden was the 3rd annual festival of the  Platform 11+ project with performances of all the co-productions which have been created by participating companies during the course of this last year. As might be expected there was a wide range of styles, themes, content, languages and much else.

The week also saw us working with 200 y
oung people from a partner school in Dresden culminating in an event on the saturday in the spaces surrounding the theatre. One of the highlights of the visit was following an interactive tour of the city which the students had created.
 
How well do you really know your neighbours?

Associate Director Katie Posner has been busy directing Jez Butterworth’s dark comedy Parlour Song as part of the York Theatre Royal Ensemble Season.

Here’s what she had to say about it:
“This play is about something we may all experience – reaching a point in your life and wondering what you have become and what you might have been. What made you happy before leaves a bad taste in the mouth and that special marriage that was once so sacred has turned sour. In this suburban nightmare each character is desperate for change and yet is terrified to do anything about it. A rainless summer filled with loss, loathing, lemons and the story of the ‘blues’.”

Parlour Song opened last night in the York Theatre Royal Studio and continues until 23rd July. 

Don’t miss this dark comedy with some excellent acting by Stephen Billington, Helen Kay and Simeon Truby.
