Situation

Hoipolloi’s recent success has been focused around the development of a trilogy of award winning works by Welsh emerging artist Hugh Hughes. The company now wants to see whether it can extend the voice of Hugh Hughes into different media and involve audiences more directly in the process of making theatre. By successfully linking its live and digital work the project will provide opportunities for creative dialogue between artists and audiences, making theatre more accessible.

Solution

Centred on Llangefni, a real town which has become fictionalised and given imaginative life through Hugh Hughes’ shows, Stories from an Invisible Town will enable Hugh to share childhood memories using over 170 short video clips, photographs, maps, drawings, music and words made especially for an online context. Audiences will be encouraged to share their memories and create their own narratives, with stories tied to locations or linked through themes, characters and events.
