We haven't had chance to post anything recently as we have all been busy over the last few weeks. As a small-scale, unfunded company our members have to hold down jobs and other commitments alongside duties with the Zoo. Despite having a couple of weeks off after the show in Settle (North Yorkshire) we still managed to fill our time with company-based activity. We have all been searching and researching for suitable material to work on for our next production. The most recent shows saw us play Burley-in-Wharfedale Festival where we shared the bill with an excellent band, The Stalks. Check out their website here. We then travelled northwards again to Knaresborough to play to a small but appreciative audience who had braved some rather unseasonable rain.
With only four dates left on the Blue Remembered Hills tour, thoughts have turned to what we might tackle next. There are a number of ideas floating around at the moment, as well as invitations to get involved in other projects. We will certainly be present for the Positive Bradford Day on the 28th of September 2011. It isn't often that our city feels confident enough to shout about itself but there is much to be celebrated, not least of which is the vibrant and burgeoning arts scene that grows, seemingly despite the best efforts of the National Govenrment and local naysayers. Paper Zoo Theatre Company have always been proud of our roots, and are positive about the future for the region.
As for the plans for the next productions...? I can't say anything definite yet, but as soon as we have finalised the details we will update you. For details of the last four performances of Blue Remembered Hills please check out our website. We hope to see some of you there.
