In September, we offered Our Friends Electric the chance to have a free three-week artist residency with Blast Theory and we’re very excited to announce that Imwen Eke was the chosen resident.
Imwen will be working on a project called Blk rooms while on residency with us from the 10th – 28th October. The project intends to explore digital interaction using a series of immersive rooms and a narrative focusing on Black British experiences.
The idea emerged from an amalgamation of Imwen’s experiences, working with multi-disciplinary frameworks and attending various experimental theatre shows. It is her intention to create an alternative theatre piece that is engaging to a culturally diverse audience.
The residency space was offered to Our Friends Electric, our subscription group for fans of Blast Theory. There are lots of different ways in which you can support us and all our members will be the first to hear about ways to get involved with us and receive exclusive invitations. For future opportunities, sign up for free here.
