a fabulous 2 days and one night at Pulse Festival http://www.chinaplatetheatre.com/pulse-festival in Ipswich - the opening night and then Suitcase day and Testing Ground - my two favourite sessions where experimental work is experimented. It saw me watching 23 pieces of theatre. Highlights were Nikki's extraordinary strength in KNOT, the disco energy of Dan Watson in Venus, The storytelling in Sophie Woolley's Augmented and Not Now collective's http://notnowcollective.com/ Pepper and Honey. The deconstruction of Invisible Flash's http://www.invisibleflash.co.uk/ The blind traveller, Fig's in wigs https://www.figsinwigs.com/ production values is always excellent and Brick Wall's https://www.facebook.com/brickwalltheatre/ Henry 5th was just storming good. Meanwhile I'm watching the pattern and chaos conversation that is happening in my garden as the work for Chelmsford is rusting nicely and been taken over by random growth.
