What I Heard About The World – Third Angel
"The only bad thing about following Sheffield’s most forward-thinking theatre company Third Angel, is trying to keep up with them. Since 1995 they’ve been putting on performances that rarely appear in a form you’re entirely familiar with and always fill you with perspective on life that you’d never have imagined." This is how our writer Sarah introduced Third Angel in our Meet the Locals interview with its artistic directors.
The company have had to cancel the remaining dates on the tour of their new show The Department Of Distractions. In the meantime, anyone with theatre-shaped holes in their diaries can enjoy their video work. See below for full-length documentation of 2012 show What I Heard About The World, produced with Sheffield Theatres and Lisbon's Teatro Maria Matos – a thought-provoking exploration of the way we engage with and tell stories in a world that seems to get bigger by the day. See their website for more.
