Made in collaboration with composer, Ron Geesin. Breakwell and Geesin initially studied audience reactions across the UK in a variety of theatrical settings, taking fly-on-the-wall photographs and video footage with sound recordings using parabolic microphones and ‘bugged seats’. Their belief confirmed that in dynamic live theatre the audience becomes part of a two-way performance, radiating an equivalent range of emotional expression to that emanating from the stage, they went on to work with and eventually record a 50-strong ‘performing audience’ at the Hawth Theatre.
