Missing live theatre? Us too.
Theatre meets ZOOM: Live performances by the Both Feet community
Sunday 28th June
7.30 - 9pm ("doors" open from 7pm)
@ Your Place, Zoom
RESERVE YOUR SEAT NOW
(NB you will need to have a Zoom account, don't worry, it's super easy and free).
We miss the real-ness and the live-ness so we're having a lot of fun playing with how many theatre elements we can bring to this. We can't wait to share and connect with you.
Make an Evening of it
Many of us make an evening of it when we go to the theatre, so why don’t you do the same? Here’s a few suggestions:
We’d love to see any photos of you embracing any of these suggestions or any of your own theatre rituals! Use the hashtag #bothfeetLIVE on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Arrive early to have drinks with friends
In Zoom I (the host) have the power to allocate people to Break Out Rooms. If you would like to hang out with other people before the show starts, you can let me know in advance HERE - or you can let me know if you’re up for being put in a room with a few strangers! I will put you back in the same rooms for the interval.
And please don’t worry - if you don’t want to socialise before the show just arrive any time and keep your video off.
A note from Steph:
These last few months have been hard but they've also presented many of us a chance to reflect, discover and develop as people and as creatives. I have been carefully designing courses to help actors (and me as a director!) to fully embrace technology, to find the fun with it and to trust it’s still possible to connect with scene partners and whoever is watching too, even with miles between us.
It has been a new challenge gracefully accepted by those I've been working with. Through playing, exploring, discovering and jumping, we have come to see that working in your home alongside family, housemates, children, pets, neighbours and washing machines (!) is different - but very much doable. More than doable.
Both Feet LIVE is a way for us to connect with you. You, the audience, are the heart of live theatre and we’ve missed you, deeply missed you.
See you on Sunday we hope.

I have been quiet on this because I couldn't find the words even though I needed to speak. So I'm just going to keep this really simple.
Over the last few weeks I have done a lot of thinking about, and listening to, and reflecting on, the Black Lives Matter movement.
My heart is heavy for many people whom I know, and many people I don't.
What Adam and I want to say is that our space is safe.
I won't say everyone is treated the same, because no one is the same, we all need different things but we do, and will, open our arms to everything that you are and everything that you bring with you.
Many of us want more understanding, empathy and action and we want to learn and be educated so if there's something you think we can do better or to open our arms wider, we're all ears.
