Andy Smith: Dematerialising Theatre (Birkbeck Arts Week 2017)

For the last fifteen years, both alone and in collaboration with Tim Crouch (An Oak Tree, Adler & Gibb), theatre-maker Andy Smith has been involved in creating a large body of work. He refers to this as a ‘dematerialised theatre’ – a theatre that attempts to do more with less. This talk, which took place as a part of Birkbeck Arts Week 2017 – reviewed some of the principles of the practice, and explores some of its origins. Below are podcasts of the event – an introduction, the talk itself and the discussion afterwards.
