The recent campaign called Rainbows of Curve has called for people around the world to share their Rainbows of Hope images with the theatre by emailing them to email@example.com. These images will ultimately form part of the set design for Curve’s Christmas production of The Wizard of Oz.
Many theatres have released screenings of past productions and Curve was in the vanguard of this initiative and has screened both Memoirs of an Asian Football Casual and The Importance of Being Earnest already. Just these two productions have been viewed by over 17,000 people worldwide. Joe Orton’s What The Butler Saw is scheduled to be screened this weekend (7pm April 19th). More titles will be announced in coming weeks.
Curve in Conversation is a series of interviews conducted by Curve Artistic Director Nikolai Foster and posted online. These will be with a whole host of creatives with links to Curve including writers, actors and others.
There will also be Instagram Live Q&As to give audience members the opportunity to ask leading figures in the industry questions every Friday at 4pm.
Curve Young Company are being asked to send in videos of their theatrical exploits at home during lockdown to firstname.lastname@example.org
Curve is also launching a series of Bedtime Stories read by actors like Cathy Tyson and Mark Peachey. There will also be activities packs available inspired by previous Made At Curve family shows like the recent Giraffe’s Can’t Dance.
Lots more information about upcoming events and how to access activity packs is available at www.curveonline.co.uk
Mention should be made of the fact that Curve is a registered charity and relies on box office takings and community support. In these straightened times they would appreciate any donations that you care to make to help them through these tough times. Details are on the website.
The Show Must Go onLINE, so support your local theatre in any way you can.
