So It Goes in Shanghai

As soon as we got back from Georgia, we took So It Goes to China, to perform at Shanghai Contemporary Theatre Festival.  It was a brilliant trip, where we played to big, friendly audiences as part of an incredibly exciting programme of innovative, international work.

We spoke to audiences as part of a post-show Q&A and also took part in a panel discussion about physical comedy, where we had the chance to talk about the Jacques Lecoq School to a Chinese audience who, for the most part, weren't aware of his work and his legacy.

Massive thanks to everyone in Shanghai and to the British Council!

So It Goes in Georgia

We spent three weeks in Batumi, Georgia recreating So It Goes in a new Georgian-language production, with two Georgian actors.

The show opened to a full house and received a standing ovation.  It will continue to run for a further fifteen performances, as part of Batumi Drama Theatre's repertoire of work. 

A huge thank you to Batumi Drama Theatre, British Council and to the region of Adjara's Ministry For Culture, who made the project possible.
