Meet the Artists: Making Theatre
Come along to an hour of insights of a 15-year working relationship between a circus artist and a theatre maker.
Susie Dee and Nicci Wilks together have made over 10 works presenting them around the world to much acclaim.
Their work ranges from the highly physical to the comedic to dark thought-provoking text-based productions.
They will be delivering a talk and share some insight to what it's like making theatre.
