The makers of the Syrian/UK co-production, Now Is The Time To Say Nothing, discuss their four year collaboration making an interactive video & sound installation exploring the role of screens in observing global conflict.
Using personal narratives Caroline works to find a performative language that will most powerfully communicate the heart of these stories. At the core of her work is a passion to give people who wouldn't primarily consider themselves artists a platform to create great works of art. She seeks stories that matter and people who have something important to say.
Projects include Make Yourself At Home at Nuit Blanche Brussels, Now Is The Time To Say Nothing at The Young Vic, Millions of Years for English National Opera at The British Museum, Dad Dancing with Second Hand Dance and Puffball at The Yard, Shadwell’s Tempest and Le Malade Imaginaire with OAE at Shakespeare’s Globe. Her installation at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Shakespeare’s Fools, was chosen to represent the UK at the Prague Quadrennial 2015. Caroline often works with Improbable theatre company and is co-founder of The International Activities Club a performance collective who focus on cross-cultural participatory performance.
