This afternoon the cast of ‘Sögur’ (plural of saga in Icelandic) was rehearsing at the ADC Theatre bar. I joined them for a couple of hours. They are doing a relaxed theatre, a concept new to me. The story telling felt organic, as if we were just observing a group of friends reenacting the story.
Relaxed Theatre Company is devoted to creating accessible theatre for all, both in creative process and spectator experience. Monitoring technical aspects of our shows as well as ensuring adapted facilities are available means that we are consistently able to produce an experience tailored to any and every individual, regardless of identification with any traits that would make an audience member feel excluded from “normal” theatre. At RTC, everyone is welcome.
