"We will fix it, we will mend it..."
For our inaugural venture as Blacklight Productions, we chose the dark and starkly emotive Stitching, by Anthony Neilson. The venue was the Back Loft, a small theatre space that encouraged an intimacy between actors and audience and helped generate an intensity that escalated throughout the discomfiting denouement.
We experimented with projection mapping and cutting edge sound techniques to create a 'tense' atmosphere that challenged the audience's boundaries of comfort.
The play, dealing with questions of male-female power dynamics and investigating the emotive theme of abortion, was particularly significant in 2016, at a time when these issues were at forefront of the political discourse in Ireland.
