Common Lore, Stute Theatre, 17th – 20th October
As we count down to the first show of Autumn, each week we’re asking the Spot On team which shows they’re most looking forward to this season – and getting to know who they are and what they do a bit better! This week we hear from one of our directors!
1. Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Sue Robinson, co-director of Culturapedia. I support the other co-director in his cake baking endeavors. I’ve also just completed a sabbatical, taking a masters degree in art, culture and society in Rotterdam. I’m interested in finding new adventures and exploring the role of cultural volunteering and why people are motivated to give their time for free to arts activities.
2. Which show are you most looking forward to and why?
They all look so wonderful, and are so varied it seems unfair to pick one. I think I’m going to opt for Sophia Hatfield’s show, Common Lore, because it was part of a big project we ran in libraries over the last three years and we supported its commissioning and development. I love commissioning work. It’s like baking a cake and waiting for the big reveal!
3. If somebody has never been to a rural touring show before why should they take a chance?
Life is boring without adventures. Have a go, you have very little to lose in terms of time and money and everything to gain from a memorable night out. Even if the show you see is not your cup of tea, you’ll have learned and experienced something new. You might even like it!
