A new theatre project directed by Michael Pinchbeck with collaborator photographer Julian Hughes
A cohort of 12 emerging artists from across the East Midlands was recruited to explore a new theatre piece inspired by the John Berger' s masterpiece, A Fortunate Man: The Story of a Country Doctor
In collaboration with theatre maker Michael Pinchbeck and photographer Julian Hughes the 12-strong group explored the parallels between the original book and the NHS today. As part of the process visual artists were paired with writers/devisers/performers, to document day to day life in doctor's surgeries. Created through a devised process a work in progress piece was shared at the 2017 National Rural Touring conference to an audience of over 160 industry professions, funders and rural touring volunteers.
