About Remix

Remix is fascinated with the idea of adaptation; in how content transfers but also how forms and skills translate. Why do we, as practitioners, choose the mediums we do to tell our stories we tell? Remix aims to bring together a creative team of exciting emerging practitioners who have asserted themselves as innovators in their own forms but who have never created a piece of theatre before. We will unite a fashion designer and graphic artist to work in design, a band to sound design, a poet to write the play as well as an emerging photographer and filmmaker. Together with Natalie Ibu as Director and an ensemble of professional recently trained actors, we will create an innovative multi-disciplinary performance for the 21st century. We will create a live performance but, also, four other versions of the performance – or four adaptations from four point of views. So, for example, the live performance may be accompanied with a fashion editorial spread version of the performance, an mp3 Play for iPods, a comic/website installation and a virtual-online experience. Each outcome will be a bespoke adaptation of the play for the specific medium. These adaptations will be launched at a live event on 29 and 30 April 2010. The event will be a celebration, bringing together audiences and practitioners – old and new and from all practices - to toast the future of art and the next generation of creative practitioners. It will do so by showcasing the fruits of collaboration – the play in its five incarnations. We hope that by bringing these first-time theatre-makers together we’ll create something bold, brave and enquiring – a project that brings together the very best creative minds to create a live performance and four form adaptations that alchemize the theatre, visual art, virtual media, fashion, music and literary industries. Remix will steal all the best bits of all the mediums whilst leaving behind the constraints/rules. If Carlsberg made theatre…. It would be Remix. We are completely committed to theatre but recognize the criticism that theatre is slow at letting itself go, of shedding old forms and embracing the possibilities of the future. Our project aims to reflect our rich, inter/multi-disciplinary, world – a world where we’re constantly sharing and borrowing from other forms and references. We want to experiment with how we might make theatre more like a magpie in order to mirror the way we live – it’ll be borne of the I-pod-listening, Vogue-reading, YouTube-watching generation and therefore speak to those very people. In our current climate, theatre must assert itself as a place for everyone in order to survive. This project aims to seduce our peers from gigs, cinema, performance poetry, events, clubs, galleries and bring them back into the theatre whilst also allowing the emerging artists to extend their networks, develop their portfolios, begin new working relationships and assert ourselves as gutsy and visionary practitioners of tomorrow. Remix has received £1000 support from the Ideas Tap Innovation Fund but still has £12,000 to raise. Help us.

"There's quite a few sites similar to easyfundraising. But where this site stands out is it's helpful & quick replies to queries. It is so easy to set up an account & to start saving for a good cause - I've recommended easyfundraising to a lot of my friends, and they're as impressed as I am with the ease of how it works."

"I run a not for profit Community Interest Company and shared our cause. Very easy to use, templates ready to share on social media, with direct links to our page and pop up reminders installed for when I was shopping with numerous websites, where I could gain the free donation. Excellent service and a fabulous idea."
