 “A heady mix of innovative stylings, humorous interventions, musical interludes and moments of pathos; it deftly uses the warm glow of the small screen to illuminate thoughts on identity, celebrity, finding yourself and feeling safe."

ARE YOU STILL WATCHING

 October 2018 

WINNER OF THE JUDGE'S AWARD

AT THE NATIONAL STUDENT

DRAMA FESTIVAL 2019

 

"We look up at the same stars and see such different things... for a little while, you're more than just you."

Jon Snow, Game of Thrones

ARE YOU STILL WATCHING is a show about telly. About old classics and new favourites, catchphrases, theme tunes, and iconic moments. The continuity is all over the place, some of it is a repeat but the HD is really very good. ARE YOU STILL WATCHING is about identity and the static hiss between the thrill of escape and the comfort of familiarity. It's channel hop, a live-action Gogglebox, a glorious technicolour dreamshow that shoves high and low culture into a room together and invites us all to watch. Our eyes are square and we don’t care.

A collaboration with the third year Theatre & Performance students, as part of our role as guest lecturers at The Arden School of Theatre in Autumn 2018.  

Created and performed by Kellie Colbert, Bella Curtis, Georgia Dodd, Rory Kelly, Alexis Maxwell, Beth Mountain, Lauren O'Hara, Noah Ross, Kayleigh Rough, Daniel Sanders, Stacie Tilsley and Jessamine Vowles. 

Directed by Sara Cocker & Léonie Higgins for Eggs Collective.
