One for the Dramaturgy: Sincoe @ Edfringe 2017

What was the inspiration for this performance?
Any work by Pinter is worth doing. His words are put together with such care and force that there is no question that the play works. Creating the performance for this play is a task that needs to be subtle.

Is performance still a good space for the public discussion of ideas? 
This work, like many others, proves that undeniable realities - such as the effect of corruption, dictatorship and misguided power - need to be presented through performance. This way everyone has a chance of feeling like the victim or, at least, getting close to the experience.

How did you become interested in making performance?
Performance never ceases to be challenging. Everyone involved learns from each other and gradually puts together a play. The process requires so much time and effort that the result is always something good - I have always been led by the challenge!

Is there any particular approach to the making of the show?
Subtlety with Pinter is key. But we want to make this play our own, for the short space of time that we can. As long as we don't betray the words we can make it unique from other interpretations.

Does the show fit with your usual productions?

Sincoe Productions is a young company and our focus is of intensity, power and creating an experience for each person in the room.

What do you hope that the audience will experience?
I hope we do justice to Harold Pinter and the audience recognise the power of his writing and the message that he wants to reveal. I hope the audience are influenced and interested by our interpretation.

What strategies did you consider towards shaping this audience experience?
For our take on this play I wanted to use specific music, props and timing that allow our idea of what the 'One for the Road' experience should be to take its strongest presentation.
