In 1974 forty-seven members of Roy Hart Theatre began their move from the Hampstead suburb of London to a huge ruin of a chateau in the south of France, filled with wild ideas and an idealistic passion for theatre and life.
The work of Roy Hart Theatre, in particular its research into the extended human voice, has been the subject of many books and serious disertations. Yet the story of Roy Hart Theatre at Malérargues has been equally dramatic, tragic, comic, touching, thrilling and entertaining as anything they have ever done on stage.
Ian Magilton will give us a brief introduction to the world of Roy Hart Theatre and share some of his stories and memories from Malérargues. There will be plenty of time for questions and fika.
