I excited to see Imitating the Dog coming to The REP this week with their new show A Farewell to Arms. The company specialize in bringing video projection together with live action in a beautiful and slick way. This facility combined with Hemingway’s plot should be a great combination.
The piece is adapted and directed by Pete Brooks, who has been a great influence on Stan’s Cafe over the years and the super bright Andrew Quick, who displayed enormous patience and generosity guiding me through my MPhil at Lancaster University. They make a formidable team, especially when combined with Simon Wainwright at the video controls and seminal set designer Laura Hopkins.
I’ll be there with my popcorn on Saturday. I’d encourage everyone to give it a go.
