I was struck by, and have always remembered, a remark by Martin Crimp: “I’m always looking for constraints, and it’s the constraints that will let the material be created by me.” So I when I was invited to join a panel to discuss this subject at the ICA tomorrow night, I immediately said yes. The title of this event is “The Trouble with Theatre: To what extent do the conventions of theatre constrain of facilitate inventiveness?” Discussing this thorny subject will be theatre director and writer Neil Bartlett, writer Sally O’Reilly and artists Roman Vasseur and Grace Schwindt. All welcome!
