How To Build [The City].

by state of the [art]

How To Build [The City]. is a project developed by state of the [art] involving artists and theatre-makers from a variety of different creative experiences. We want to undertake the journey to build a new, inclusive, diverse society during and after the pandemic.

Starting from the myth of Gilgamesh, the artists are exploring ways to develop new formats for a renovated audience experience. We will be revisiting and transforming the myth, specifically looking at innovative practices to engage audiences in real-time. How can we support audience engagement with regards to the mental effects of lockdown and its impact on human interaction and communication?

The Woman Who Finally Got Inside Her Husband's Brain

by Joyce Greenaway

“Is this it? I know you said your brain was a ‘bottomless pit of nothingness’ but this…”

Walking the tightrope between the ordinary and the extraordinary, this witty and moving new play explores the complexities of relationships and the desire to be seen and understood.

Thanks to further Engine Room support, award-winning Northern Irish writer, Joyce Greenaway, and Director, Matthew Forbes (NT War Horse Assoc. Dir. Puppetry) have put the finishing touches to a piece where the mundane and fantastical merge, creating a vivid, relatable and honest peek into the private lives of a couple pushed to extremes.
