Above Beyond

Immersive theatre company Look Left Look Right are awarded The Corinthia Artist in Residence 2012 where participants will be guided through a one-on-one experience through the Corinthia Hotel

The Corinthia Artist in Residence is an annual initiative curated by Arts Co which champions British-nurtured talent within different disciplines of the arts.

 

The 2012 Residency saw artist Noémie Goudal create three large scale works of art under the brief of ‘Unknown Views’ while resident at and for display in The Corinthia.

 

Mimi Poskitt (Artistic Director), Morgan Lloyd-Malcolm (Writer) and Katie Lyons (Writer) of Look Left Look Right were selected by the judges for the second Residency which focuses on theatre.  Their brief is to create a series of unique and exhilarating theatrical performances across the hotel, or immersive theatre. Look Left Look Right will encourage the traditionally passive audience member to be open minded and willing as they take on the role of the protagonist in their own play. Each participant will be guided through a number of one-on-one encounters and experiences, with the play entitled Above & Beyond.
