“It's so much more exciting than being a passive part of the audience. As well as being entertaining it made you question the role of surveillance in a democratic society, both the pros and cons of it, in a subtle way.”
– Audience member, Operation Black Antler
“During my time at Blast Theory, I was given numerous opportunities to work on projects, take on many responsibilities and gain new skills. My confidence has grown tremendously and I truly believe that my time there has helped set me up for a career in the future.”
- Mairead Garland, Blast Theory volunteer
“Throughout the project I learnt so much from technical camera work, to creative writing skills, to performance and public speaking. My favourite part of the project was the unity of the group, it gave us time to come together and make something wonderful.”
– Tasha Williams (18), participant in A Place Free Of Judgement
“Door into the Dark (...) would not have become what it is now had Blast Theory not offered us their firm critique and generous support at its birth.”
– Amy Rose and May Abdalla (Anagram), former Blast Theory residents
"I was absolutely fascinated with this app, I even logged onto it on Christmas day to find out if Karen was still angry at me for snooping in her drawers. I found it so interesting that an app on a smartphone – something we are so used to knowing is fake/revolves around a bunch of codes, could affect daily life in such a real way. I’d love to see more work like this. Bravo Blast Theory, at it again changing mind frames."
- Audience member, Karen
