Julia and I were originally a part of the Powershare hosted by Abi Zakarian and Morgan Lloyd Malcolm. As the actual performance of it got postponed due to the pandemic, we were delighted to have the opportunity to work together on this project. Hannah McClean has given a tour de force performance in The Thelmas hit show Laydkiller, so we were really excited to see how she will interpret the text. The main goal was finding different approaches and ways to communicate the text to an audience who can’t be there live but is instead engaging digitally with the material. It has definitely been an exciting challenge, as this is something new for all of us and we needed to discover how to adapt the text and the direction under present circumstances.
