Calling all tweeters, bloggers, snappers, flipcamers and social media addicts.
You are invited to take photos*, film footage & audio recordings of rehearsals of Pass The Spoon on Thursday 26th April from 3pm at Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh
This is an exclusive opportunity to photograph, film amd tweet / blog live from rehearsals for one of the most acclaimed shows of 2011, ahead of new London & Edinburgh dates. This will be a unique chance to sit in on music and text rehearsals, plus put your questions to the company including director Nicholas Bone, composer David Fennessy, conductor Oliver Gooch and Red Note Ensemble.
Pass The Spoon is the critically acclaimed ‘sort of’ opera from Magnetic North, written by David Shrigley and directed by Nicholas Bone, with music composed by David Fennessy and performed live by Red Note Ensemble. Following a sell-out premiere at Tramway, Glasgow in 2011, Pass The Spoon is back at Traverse and a London premiere at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre.
You can see what everyone else is saying about the production and tweet yourself using the hashtag #passthespoon, tagging @magnorththeatre @rednoteensemble
